technical info

A stage through inland Sicily with a summit finish. Starting in Avola, the route touches the centre of Sicilian Baroque in Noto, and later passes Pantalica and Vizzini in the approach to the volcano. The stage finishes by Rifugio Sapienza, as it has already done before, but the closing climb is somewhat original. The route takes in the ascent from Ragalna (as in 2018), and then shifts to the ‘traditional’ side, the one coming from Nicolosi (as in 2011), for the last 14 km.
