The first half of the stage is wavy, while the second half is perfectly flat. The route rolls along moderate undulations all the way up to km 120 (Brescia), where the road eventually levels out. Beware of a few tunnels in the first part. In the flat sector, roads are relatively wide and straight, with just a few curvier stretches. Roundabouts, speed bumps and traffic dividers are the main obstacles typically found in urban areas. The final 5 km are perfectly flat, with two mild bends and one (last) turn 600 m before the finish, on 7-m wide asphalt road. Roundabouts, speed bumps and traffic islands are the main obstacles, as found throughout the stage course.
