Giro d'Italia Stage 5: Agrigento - Santa Ninfea

At first, the stage is played out on flat roads running along the coast, on the ss. 115 trunk road, with a slightly more complicated passage through the centre of Sciacca. The second half, instead, running entirely through the Valle del Belice, is more demanding, with a few long but mild categorised climbs. In the second part of the route, the roadway is narrowed and very worn out at points. Final kilometres: the route descends slightly until 2,200 m before the finish. Here, the stage course turns right and takes in a short uphill stretch (approx. 1,200 m), with ramps peaking at 12%. The final kilometre descends slightly at first, and then runs gently uphill. The finish line sits on a 250-m long and 7.5-m wide asphalt straight.

Giro d'Italia Stage 6: Caltanissetta - Etna

This will be the first summit finish. Like the previous two, the stage has a very wavy profile, and features an endless series of bends over the first 120 km. Past Paternò, the route takes a first-ever pass up the long closing climb that leads all the way to the Etna Astrophysical Observatory. Final kilometres: the final climb (15 km) begins in Ragalna. Over the first 10 km, the road is relatively wide, yet steep at points (max. gradient: 16%). The roadway narrows 5.5 km before the finish, as the route travels short lengths in the woods and on lava fields. Red flag: the route climbs and bends slightly until the final 150 m, where the road stretches out, with gradients around 6% (the finish line sits on a 6-m wide asphalt road).
