The stage of the day: long day and, again, for the sprinters

For the second consecutive day, the day will be completely flat between Carpi and Novi Ligure although this time it will be longer: 221 km. Ideal for sprinters.


The eleventh stage, between Carpi and Novi Ligure, will be totally flat. In total, 221 kilometers will be totally flat with two intermediate points in San Zenone and Pontecurone, already in the second half of the day. For the second consecutive day, it will be a day for the fastest men in the peloton. In Modena it was Arnaud Demare who opened after being close several times. The French is already just one point in the short leg of the German Pascal Ackermann (155 vs 154), which fell in the day yesterday and will have to see as his body responds after such a blow.

The last curve will be 2,800 goal meters, so the arrival must be less dangerous than in other times of this Tour of Italy. The Italian champion, Elia Viviani, has not yet been released and this will be one of the few occasions left to the sprinters to raise the arms since on Wednesday the first first class port will appear. At the moment, Valerio Conti continues to enjoy his pink jersey before the start of the really hard race.
