Stage 13: Sanremo – Cuneo 150 km
Friday, May 20th, 13:20 CET

After tackling one single climb, the Colle di Nava, (GPM3, 10.4 km at 6.6%) in the first part of the route, the stage takes a long ride through the Cuneo plain, as the route just slowly goes down a valley.

As soon as the stage hits the lowlands, the main obstacles will be the ones typically found in urban areas. with one remaining bump on the road which comes at the second intermediate sprint in S.Michele di Mondovì: an uncategorized ramp with just 5% average for a couple of kms.

The Climb.

Final kms
The final kilometres are raced on wide, straight and well-paved urban roads, with a few roundabouts along the route. At the entrance of the old town, the riders will ride on flagstone for 800 metres, before taking in the last km. The home straight is on tarmac road, with an average 2.5% gradient.

What to expect:

The question remains whether or not any teams see a benefit to drop pure sprinters on the Colle di Nava and to spend energy during the following 100 kilometres to prevent them from regaining contact.
So, the breakaway can make it, thanks to the Colle di Nava, but there is definitely enough room for the peloton to reel them back. Take your pick.
