54,8km time trial. First 24 km on Monte di Gabicce: climb, false flat and descent, continuous left and right bends with no straight sections worthy of note. Cross Pesaro (split time point) with some sections of narrow road with road surface in paving slabs. A mostly flat sections follows as far as the as the short climb (steep in parts) of Novilara. There follow several kilometers of narrow roads, sometimes descending with technical bends, leading to the long straight of Via Flamina. After about 12 straight and mostly flat kilometers the final climb begins.
