The Route

The 106th edition of the race is mainly flat, traveling from Omegna to Beinasco. Departing from the lake of Orta, the riders will slightly ascend and pass through the Cremosina to Borgosesia. The crossing of the Northern Po valley begins upon long, flat and straight roads. After 130km the riders will reach the slopes of the Collina di Superga, of which they will climb the “Pilonetto” side, with gradients that reach double digits near Rivodora. Descending the Pino Torinese, followed by a short climb towards the Hermitage, they then turn onto Pecetto Torinese and reach Cambiano. Here is where the last flat sector of the race begins.

Last km

The last 5km are along flat roads with a wide final straight of 500m.
