15 May 2016
Giro d'Italia 2016
From Radda to Greve in Chianti , This individual time trial is very wavy and winding: undulating and slightly uphill all the way to Castellina in Chianti (split time 1), undulating and mainly downhill up to Madonna di Pietracupa (split time 2). Here, the roadway narrows for about 4 km. Next on the route are two climbs; the second one is steeper and leads to Panzano in Chianti (split time 3). Here begins the final descent leading into the finish. The final kilometres run downhill all the way up to 2 km from the finish line, along wide and mainly straight roads, just bending slightly at points. 300 m from the finish there is a final bend, nearly a U-shaped curved, leading into the old town centre and to the finish. The home straight is 180 m long, on 6-m wide, flat asphalt road.
