Stage 18: Borgo Valsugana - Treviso 151 km
Thursday, May 26th, 12:40 BST

The sprinters get their final outing of this Giro, as the peloton enjoys a welcome rest from the climbing. The route between Borgo Valsugana and Treviso is just 152 kilometres long without featuring major obstacles. The Muro Di Ca del Poggio is tough, but short and a long way from the finish.

The stage travels East, the South, away from the mountains.
In Treviso, the riders will be met with a circuit of approx. 11 km, to be covered only once. The last Giro finish in Treviso dates back to 2013. Mark Cavendish took the spoils ahead of Nacer Bouhanni and Luka Mezgec.

The Climbs:

Le Scale Di Primolano: GPM4, 2.3 km at 5.7%

Muro Di Ca' Del Poggio: GPM4, 1.1 km at 12.3%

Final Kms.

The final circuit is played out on wide and flat roads, with the exception of a slightly narrower sector, from the ‑4 km to the ‑2 km marker, and of a sharper corner with 3 km to go. Over the last 2 km, the road opens up, with just a final bend 1,200 m before the finish (on tarmac).

What to expect:

The remaining sprinters teams to chase the break. In the eventuality that non of the main sprinters remain, the possibility of a successful breakaway increases by some margin.
