Giro d’Italia 2017 start from Sardinia

The three stages of the Giro d’Italia in Sardinia

The first three days of Giro d’ Italia number 100 run in Sardinia departing from Alghero: the island has already been touched three times by the Giro in 1961, 1991 and 2007. The route in Sardinia includes three stages: Alghero-Olbia 203 km, Olbia-Tortolì 208 km and Tortolì-Cagliari 148 km


1° STAGE  – 5th MAY 2017

ALGHERO – OLBIA – 203 KM

Giro d' Italia tappa Alghero-Olbia
For the first time Alghero hosts a stage at the Giro. The stage runs along the northern coast of the island. The route is relatively wavy and bumpy, with a long, steady sequence of constant undulations, and a number of short, steep ramps, including 3 categorised climbs in Multeddu, Trinità d’Agultu and San Pantaleo. The latter, less than 20 km from the finish, totals approximately 5 km at an 8% slope over a few kilometres, and maximum gradients are even higher in the first part. A rolling finale leads all the way to Olbia, that unlike Alghero, has already hosted twice the Giro in 1991. Two km before the finish, the route covers a short stretch on stone-slab paved road. There is a last, wide bend 600 m before the finish, leading into the home straight on 8-m wide asphalt road.



2° STAGE  – 6th MAY 2017

OLBIA – TORTOLÌ – 208 KM

Giro d' Italia tappa Olbia-Tortolì
This is a medium mountain stage, running almost entirely through inland Sardinia. The stage starts from Olbia (two stages in 1991) and first comes a rolling section across the district of Nuoro, with three long climbs: Bitti and Orune (non-categorised climb), Nuoro (a steeper, categorised climb) and Passo di Genna Silana (cat. climb). Past Genna Silana comes a long, fast-running descent (over 20 km, quite bumpy at points) on wide, well-surfaced roads. The final 10 km are flat with arrival in Tortolì (town stage for the first time).   After leaving the ss. 125 and entering the centre of Girasole, the route cuts across the industrial area of Tortolì, on wide roads alternating with series of roundabouts. The roadway narrows 2 km before the finish, crosses the railway track and turns right straight away, into the home straight (1,800 m long), on 7.5-m wide asphalt road.


3° STAGE  – 7th MAY 2017

TORTOLÌ – CAGLIARI  – 148 KM

Giro d' Italia tappa Tortolì-Cagliari
The stage is basically flat, with just mild and gentle undulations throughout the route. The first 90 kilometres are raced on a fast-flow road, passing through a number of well-lit tunnels. After leaving the ss. 125, the route runs across Villasimius (intermediate sprint) and takes in a few short climbs along the coastal road. KOM points are for grabs at Capo Boi. Then comes a perfectly flat stretch of road, leading to the finish (for the fourth time in the history of Giro) in Cagliari. The final 10 kilometres are completely flat. The roads are wide and with a number of roundabouts, but no tricky curves. The home straight is 800 m long, on 8-m wide asphalt road (up to the last 350 m)…
