Stage 11: Santarcangelo di Romagna – Reggio Emilia 203 km
Wednesday, May 18th, 12:20 CET

This stage could rival last Thursday's for boredom.
A pan-flat stage across the lowlands of Emilia-Romagna, along the Via Emilia on straight and mostly wide roads. As the stage passes through several urban areas, roundabouts, traffic islands and street furniture will be found along the route.

The route detours just once, looping to the North, just after Bologna. Stage 11 is one of the longest races on the Giro. The race between Santarcangelo di Romagna and Reggio Emilia adds up to 203 kilometres.

Final kms
The final kilometres are on wide and well-surfaced roads, with roundabouts, traffic dividers, pedestrian islands and speed being the main obstacles. The home straight is 350 m long, on 7‑m wide tarmac.

What to Expect:

Boredom. Few will fancy getting into the break, as the sprinter teams will be all over this stage.
That should be done with as soon as the flag drops. Then nothing for about 5 hours. The speed will go up and we will then probably have a crash or two, as riders struggle to regain focus.
Buncho sprinto.
