Maybe they need to do it three times.

Excuse me, are you having a hard time reading profiles? They will climb it 3 times.

Finish of stage 2 of Tirreno is different from last year's.

Really cool finishes there, stage 2 and 5. Can most of the big name sprinters stay on for a steady 5% grade? What is their limit... 3% steady maybe?

Pomarance has Ulissi written all over it.
Cancellara is like The Black Album. Really good but way overrated.

That whole stage looks great. Generally this route is so much better than last year. I'm really looking forward to it.

Good route, though bit of a shame there's no hilly stage like the one in 2013. But we haven't seen anything like that since then, so I guess it's too much to ask for.

Agree. Both the routes of P-N and T-A have some very well designed stages.

That final in Fermo looks similar to the Chieti finals which is good.

You guys are right about both PN and TA having nice designs. I looked at PN again, and stage 1 has a 1km ramp at 5% in the penultimate kilometre. Then false flat to the finish. The battle for yellow in the first stage will be between lots of different types of riders.
