Stage 7: Matera – Brindisi 143 km
Friday, October 9th, 13:00 CEST
It’s stage 7, and only now comes the first obvious bunch sprint of the race. From Matera to Brindisi there is not a climb in sight. The stage is very short and on straight and wide roads, with the two intermediate sprints quite close together in the middle of the stage, in Taranto and Grottaglie. The home straight is 1.2 km long.
What to expect:
Mass sprint of course. Only the wind can spice this up. And, fair warning, wind is a definite possibility in this area, so maybe we’ll be lucky.
