Only one categorised climb, inside the first 35km, but this day undulates constantly between sea level and 500m-plus altitude and is the second-longest of the race. It’s not quite ambush territory, and the downhill run-in should see a large group contest the stage win. Stages like this are a speciality of the Giro – neither particularly flat, nor hilly, just hard.
