    The 2nd stage of the Giro d'Italia 2015 is the first stage in line of this 98th edition and it'll start in the city of Albenga.

    During this stage, the riders will first go off to Marina di Andora south of the start, following the coast line, before they go more landinwards and come back to the start in order to go up north following the coast line via Finale Ligure, the feeding zone in Spotorno, the two intermediate sprints, in Savona and in Varazze and, with a short detour landinwards, the climb of the of the Pratozanino (Sciaborasca) (4th category). They'll again follow the coast down to Genova where they'll first turn left twice and cross the finish line followed by a short circuit a bit more east and finally they'll battle for the stage win when they cross the finish line for the second time!

    3/ Monday 11 May 2015 - Rapallo > Sestri Levante - 136 km

    The 3rd stage will be a bit more hillier than the previous one - which is definitely one for the sprinters - between Rapallo and Sestri Levante.

    Between those two cities, the riders will find a first climb after about 25 kilometers, the Colle Caprile (3rd category) followed by a slightly hilly part with two intermediate sprints, in Torriglia and in Montebruno, and a second and last climb in Barbagelata (2nd category). After this climb the riders will continue in a descent towards the finish in Sestri Levante of this short stage of only 136 kilometers.

    Another relatively short stage will be on the programme starting in Chiavari. After having briefly followed the coast line towards Sestri Levante (the finish location of the previous stage), the peloton of the Tour of Italy 2015 will go a bit more landinwards, towards the Colla di Velva (3rd category) and come back to the coast with the two intermediate sprints, in Borghetto di Vara and in Levanto. They'll than climb the Passo del Termine (3rd category) and follow the coast road towards the finish. After the first crossing of the finish line in La Spezia they'll however continue and climb a 3rd category climb in Biassa just before the place where they entered the circuit. At the second crossing of the finish line the riders will battle for the stage victory.

    9/ Sunday 17 May 2015 - Benevento > San Giorgio del Sannio - 215 km

    The day before the first rest day, a rather difficult stage will be on the programme this Sunday 17 May. Its race route is never really flat, going first up north before the riders come back to the start and start the descent to the south. After about one hundred kilometers, they'll get on top of the first difficulty, the Monte Terminio (2nd category) where they'll also find the feeding zone. After the descent, the first intermediate sprint will be early in the next climb, in Bagnoli Irpino, and they'll get on top of the Colle Molella (1st category).

    After the descent of this difficulty, the riders will battle for the intermediate sprint in Lioni and the race route will become a bit more hilly, or even mountaineous with the climb of the Passo Serra (2nd category) which will have its summit at about fifteen kilometers from the finish in San Giorgio del Sannio.

    R1/ Monday 18 May 2015 - rest day

    The first rest day of this Giro d'Italia 2015 will allow the riders to recover not only from the first week of racing but also from the transfer towards Civitanova Marche, at about 360 kilometers from the finish of the 9th stage in San Giorgio del Sannio.

    10/ Tuesday 19 May 2015 - Civitanova Marche > Forlì - 200 km

    After this rest day, the Giro riders and its followers will come back together in Civitanova Marche for a flat stage, towards Forlì. In this stage, the riders will find the feeding zone in Fano and a 4th category climb, the Monte di Bartolo, just afterwards. This climb will most probably not prevent the remaining sprinters from playing a role in the final of this stage in Forlì however. Before they get there, they still have two intermediate sprints, in Santarcangelo di Romagna and in Cesena.

    The 11th stage of the Giro d'Italia 2015 is a quite hilly stage which starts with an intermediate sprint in Castrocaro Terme, soouth-west of the start.

    They'll again turn right and find the second intermediate sprint in Borgo Tossignano followed by the feeding zone in Codrignano. Before they arrive in Imola they'll turn right to enter a 15.4 kilometers long circuit which they'll do three times and which is partly on the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari which will give quite a particular finish to this stage. In this circuit, the riders will climb a 4th category climb at the most southern part of it in each lap, Tre Monti.

  2. Bonjour lanery
    Si tu parles des petites cases colorées sur le côté des profils des étapes, il s'agit de la légende des couleurs : ça donne le pourcentage des pentes.

  3. Bonjour lanery,

    Vous parlez des carrés dans les itinéraires horaires ? Si c'est le cas, en voici l'explication :
    - les carrés bleus dans la première colonne altim. : ils indiquent l'altitude de chaque endroit mentionné dans l'itinéraire horaire (en tournant la tête devant l'écran vous découvrirez donc en quelque sorte le profil de l'étape ;-))
    - dans les 3 colonnes distance, ceux-ci permettent de visualiser la distance indiquée (colonnes distance entre points, distance totale parcourue et distance restant à parcourir)
    - enfin, dans les trois dernières colonnes, sont indiqués les horaires de passage en fonction de la vitesse moyenne et les couleurs c'est juste un petit jeu avec le drapeau italien et la couleur rose du Giro !

    Si jamais votre question ne concerne pas ces points, n'hésitez pas à la préciser :-).

  4. Sauf la dernière étape, il n'y a quasiment jamais d'étape complètement à plat. Une ou deux exception ! Si ! Mais les profils topos montrent les difficultés de cette édition ... Pour finir 5 étapes alpestres et l'ascension de sestrière en conclusion !!! Des chutes à répétitions ... Ce sera dure ; je ne suis pas sur que Contador garde son maillot rose !!!

    Thomas, quelle est la longueur maximale d'une étape de Tour ?
    Je ne savais pas que l'on pouvait faire une étape de 265 km ... et pour finir un petite ascension (toute lègere !)

  5. @laurent, désolé de ne pas avoir répondu plus tôt. Selon le règlement UCI, la distance maximale par étape est de 240 km (sachant que la distance journalière moyenne maximale [hors prologue] est de 180 km).

    Néanmoins, sur dérogation spéciale du bureau exécutif ou, pour les épreuves de l'UCI WorldTour (comme c'est le cas pour le Giro), du Conseil du Cyclisme Professionnel, les organisateurs peuvent être autorisés à inclure dans les épreuves de 10 jours et plus pour hommes élite au maximum deux étapes de plus de 240 km. Il n'est alors fait aucune mention de limite à ne pas dépasser mais ces étapes comptent dans la moyenne qui est limitée.

    Enfin, un autre critère pour cette question est la distance qui est limitée à 3500 km pour les grands tours.

  7. Quelle belle étape de montagne hier .Mr< Contador > à démontré sa grande classe et fait payer cher à l'équipe Astana de l'avoir attaqué en profitant de sa crevaison.(pas très noble).Malgré sa faible équipe il a rétabli la situation en beauté ;ça mérite un grand coup de chapeau pour Alberto et quel plaisir d'avoir suivi cela en direct : encore merci Mr CONTADOR

  8. Pas d'accord avec constantin, la course avait déjà commencé et les Astana étaient après les Katusha qui avaient tenté de se faire la malle.

    Et puis je ne pense pas que Contador soit celui qui ait son mot à dire dans l'histoire, car je me souviens très bien d'une attaque sur Andy Schleck qui avait un problème de dérailleur, dans le Port de Balès en 2010.

  9. Bonjour Freddy
    Aujourd'hui Alberto a encore démontré sa grande classe en partant seul dans la montagne.Il domine ce Giro de la tête et des jambes ;il accentue encore son avance ,et tout cela à la pédale.
    Amicalement.

  10. Bonjour à tous.

    Je me suis rendu dans le col delle Finestre Samedi. C'est étrange mais pour moi la partie non goudronnée n'avait rien à voir avec 2011. En 2011, j'avais le souvenir d'une route superbement préparée, lisse, magnifique. Samedi, c'était tout le contraire. Il y avait des trous, des cailloux de partout, c'était vraiment bien cabossé. Et je ne vous explique pas la descente!

    J'ai du mal à voir le Tour de France passer par ce col (comme cela avait été évoqué pour une arrivée à Sestrières). Ou alors il faut interdire aux personnes de monter en vélo dès 10h du matin, car hier il y avait énormément de cyclistes, et c'était très dangereux de monter, tant les personnes roulaient n'importe comment, en zigzag, en montant tout doucement sur la gauche de la route, en discutant à 3 de front alors que la route n'est pas large,...
