Stage 12: Parma – Genova 202 km
Thursday, May 19th, 11:50 CET

Stage 12 of the Giro d'Italia is a race of just over 200 kilometres. After cresting three peaks in the second half of the route the finale is a flat run-in of some 20 kilometers into Genoa. The RCS claim this is a challenging stage across the Apennines. The route ascends steadily with very mild gradients from Parma, along the Taro river valley, entering Liguria through the uncomplicated Passo del Bocco. The route then tackles the Colletta di Boasi and the Valico di Trensasco, which contains difficult gradients, but is far from the finish.

The Giro visited Genoa for the last time in 2015. It was a flat stage that culminated in a bunch sprint, won by Elia Viviani. At least this time, the finish will not involve the dangers of a large bunch traveling through the city at high speed.


Final kms
After taking the motorway, the route crosses the San Giorgio bridge and takes the Genova Ovest exit (passing through a few tunnels), merging onto the Aldo Moro flyover up to the ‑2 km mark. Over the last 2 km, the road is straight, wide and well paved, slightly uphill, and with only one bend at the red triangle. The stage homes in on tarmac road, at approx. 2%.

What to Expect:

A few teams have riders who have been waiting for this one. The climbs are relatively easy, but should prove too much for the fast men to be too interested. On paper a chance for fast strongmen, while a successful breakaway is also an option.
