Stage 7: San Salvo – Pescara
Distance: 177km
Highest point: 564m
Category: medium mountains

HIGH ROULEUR
Up into Abruzzo for a fascinating day’s racing. The stage, arrowing through fortified hillside towns, is classic Tirreno-Adriatico material. Everyone will fancy their chances here, so it will be a war of attrition, probably won by an all-rounder with no GC aspirations. Abruzzo has its fair share of those, so fans might just see one of their own atop the podium. With four king of the mountains prizes on offer mid-stage, whoever prevails will have to earn it on this bruising, quintessentially Central Italian day.

Stefano Zanatta says: "Nervous, probably brutally hard, and ultimately anything that can happen will happen. Thinking back to the 2010 Giro, it was a stage just like this, that epic day to L’Aquila, that made it such a fabulous race. So I’d say that the maglia rosa contenders have everything to lose here and probably very little to gain. Any slight loss of concentration and the Giro could go up in smoke. If the weather is bad it could be a memorable day."
