The Route
This is an individual time trial of 11.1 km, with a different route than previous years. Starting from the ‘Riviera delle Palme’ stadium, the stage takes the railway underpass and merges onto the ‘traditional’ route, in the opposite direction. After descending towards Porto d’Ascoli and arriving in Piazza Salvo d’Acquisto, the stage takes a U-turn and proceeds northbound along the sea. The route briefly takes the opposite roadway after km 6 of racing. Past the port, the course heads towards Grottammare, runs around the old stadium and then continues southbound, heading for the finish. The stage is largely played out on wide and straight tarmac roads.
 
Final Kilometres
The last 3 km run along wide and mainly straight roads, with many 90-degree turns. There is one last double bend 300 m before the finish line, which sits on 8 m wide tarmac.

San Benedetto del Tronto

Touristic information

San Benedetto del Tronto is one of the main holiday resorts of the southern Marche and, with over seven thousand palm trees on its wide promenade, it has a touch of tropical charm. It is also called Riviera delle Palme, a term that was later extended to the neighboring resorts.

It boasts the Blue Flag label because of its wide sandy beaches, safety and  other services.

The promenade is characterized by eight thousand palm trees and by numerous relaxation areas, games for children and thematic gardens: arid garden, wet garden, palm garden, rose garden, Mediterranean scrub garden.

Gastronomy

The most typical dish of San Benedetto del Tronto is the “brodetto alla sanbenedettese”, a fish soup with the addition of peppers and vinegar. Many ingredients are used to prepare it: extra virgin olive oil, brown onions, a piece of chilli pepper, cuttlefish, squid, white wine, green tomatoes, large chopped pieces of green and red pepper. Further types of fish are included, like dogfish, toad, mazzoline, scorpion fish, ray and mantis shrimp. Fish is cooked at low heat, with the pot covered for a few minutes; top quality white wine vinegar is added before serving. It is good to serve accompanied with toasted bread.

Another specialty famous worldwide is the Oliva Ascolana of Piceno D.O.P, that is quite large, with a uniform color, from green to straw yellow; it is crunchy, easy to digest and is considered as the best green table olive in the world. Some illustrious men like Plinio appreciated its quality in brine; Pope Sixtus V, Garibaldi, Rossini, Puccini also showed  their appreciation for this product. Recognized as DOP (protected source status) in 2005, these typical olives are the main ingredient of the Ascolane Olives recipe: stuffed with a tasty meat-based filling and breaded before being deep fried, they are excellent as an appetizer, or as an aperitif, served both hot and cold.

Drinks

Numerosi sono i vini prodotti nel ricco entroterra circostante, da accompagnare alle squisitezze della riviera. Un vino agile e non banale, ricco di profumi freschi di ginestra è la Passerina di Offida DOCG, che si accosta molto bene a primi piatti leggeri e a zuppe, oltre che a piatti a base di pesce. Vino ottenuto da uve esclusivamente di vitigno Passerina, autoctone delle Marche, si presenta con un bel colore giallo paglierino tenue. I profumi sono tipici della frutta tropicale e mela verde, mentre quelli floreali rimandano all’acacia e alla ginestra. E’ un vino da degustare possibilmente giovane, per apprezzarne tutta la freschezza e versatilità negli accostamenti.

Nelle tonalità del fiore di coriandolo, il Pecorino di Offida DOCG è prodotto nelle colline che circondano Ascoli Piceno e si abbina alla perfezione a piatti a base di pesce, molluschi e crostacei. E’ perfetto anche con carni bianche e formaggi di media stagionatura. Ha un bel colore giallo dorato, con lievi riflessi verdolini e interessanti note balsamiche di erbe aromatiche e di frutta gialla matura e agrumi, che si sprigionano appena accostato al naso. Il risultato è un gusto intenso e persistente, fresco e bilanciatamente sapido.

Tra i rossi, immancabile è il Rosso Piceno DOC Superiore, che rimanda agli aromi della viola. Si abbina perfettamente a carni arrosto, a piatti di moderata piccantezza e, ovviamente, a formaggi importanti dal gusto deciso. E’ prodotto in particolare dai vitigni di Montepulciano e Sangiovese e si caratterizza per un bel colore rosso rubino vivace con leggere venature violacee. Si presenta all’olfatto con interesanti note di spezie dolci e frutta rossa, profumi e aromi che si ritrovano agevolmente in bocca con ampiezza ed eleganza.

Points of interest

San Benedetto del Tronto has always been closely linked to the sea and the maritime tradition. The Sea Museum includes the Maritime Museum of the Marche, the Amphora Museum, the Fish Museum and the Antiquarium Truentinum. The Pinacoteca of the Sea, established in April 2009, although located in the heart of the old town, is an integral part of the museum center dedicated to the sea set up at the Fish Market. The Museum of Art on the Sea, a permanent open-air museum, which develops alongside the entire south pier and houses 145 artworks, including 135 sculptures and 10 large murals, is worth a visit.

In the old town, at the foot of which the fishing village has developed starting  from the eighteenth century, you can admire the fourteenth-century hexagonal Gualtieri Tower, which marks the hours of the day through its ancient clock, the symbol of the city. The must see attractions are:  the Madonna of Santissimo Sacramento Sanctuary, the Cathedral of Santa Maria of Marina, the Church of San Giuseppe, the Vescovado, the Concordia Theathre, and the Lighthouse.

The promenade is equipped with lush gardens, a pine forest, tennis courts, an ice rink and Palazzina Azzurra, an historic Palace next to Albula stream. San Benedetto del Tronto’s beaches are suitable for children beacuse of fine sand: children can actually build sand castles and digg holes, swim safely because of shallow water.

The “Giardino Zio Marcello”, just in front of the free beach, is a large green area where children can easily play. A wide cycle path runs continuously along the beach  for over 15 km until Cupra Marittima. To the south, the track reaches Via del Mare in Porto d’Ascoli. The town also boasts a beautiful marina, a fishing port and a wholesale fish market, one of Italy’s most important fish markets.

North of the mouth of the Tronto river is the Sentina Nature Reserve, which is characterized not only by the migration of birds, but also by a stretch of sandy beach with an unique environment.

The most important events taking place throughout the year are: the “Antico e le Palme” exhibition-market, which attracts Italian and foreign antique dealers and collectors; the Madonna della Marina Festivity occuring the last Sunday of July, with a sea procession of fishing boats; the Libero Bizzarri Award, one of Italy’s most renowned competitions in the field of documentary cinemas;  Anghiò, the International Blue Fish Festival.
