Stage 10: Pescara – Jesi 196 km
Tuesday, May 17th, 12:20 CET

The stage is clearly divided into two parts. It begins pan-flat along the Statale Adriatica, in the Marche region. What follows is a long section of rolling terrain, with a succession of mild and steep ascents or even ‘walls’, (Recanati GPM4, 3.4 km at 6.9% features 500m at 13.8% in the middle) with no pause for recovery.

The course then takes in consecutive ascents to Civitanova Alta (up to Crocette di Montecosaro), Recanati, Filottrano, Santa Maria Nova and Monsano. Past Monsano, the finish will be just 9 km away. The second intermediate sprint in Filottrano, hometown of Michele Scarponi.
The last time that the Giro visited Pescara was in 2013, when Adam Hansen soloed to victory from the breakaway. It has been three years since Jesi saw the pro-peloton when, 2019, the Tirreno-Adriatico visited the town.

Recanati: GPM4, 3.4 km at 6.9%
With a max gradient of 18%.

Final kms
The route drops down quickly on wide roads into Jesi, with approximately 1,400 m to go. A right-hander leads into the home straight, on an average 2% incline. The finish line lies on tarmac.

What to expect:
The second half of this stage is probably too tough for the sprinters, although maybe the likes of Caleb Ewan could just hang in. However the likes of Mathieu van der Poel,Diego Ulissi and Biniam Girmay will be more heavily fancied.
