Giro d'Italia: Stage 6 preview

Stage 6: Mola di Bari – Margherita di Savoia
Distance: 169km
Highest point: 156m
Category: Flat

FOLLOWING THE SCRIPT
The Giro turns for home with a day on the coast. This time we’ll be in Puglia, the ‘bread basket’ of Italy, and will conclude at Margherita di Savoia. There will be breaks – lots of them – but the stakes are quite high today, so it may take  a while before the right one sticks. Regardless of these, it will come back together by the seaside. This will be a sure-fire gallop across an area famed for its vast salt flats and thermal springs. Indeed, the finish town of Margherita di Savoia was originally called Saline di Barletta.
