After the longest stage of the 2018 Giro d’Italia‘s on Tuesday, the racing continues with a much shorter stage to Osimo.

The day starts from Assisi with rolling roads followed by the third-category climb of Passo Cornello, before a few more climbs are tackled on the way to the steep uphill finish in Osimo.

The final 50 kilometres of the 256-kilometre stage – one of the shortest in the 2018 race – are rolling that could sap the lags of some of the faster finishers.

But it should all come down to the final few kilometres into Ossimo, with the riders hitting a 16 per cent section of road with 1.5km to go, before the gradient eases a little from the flame rouge onwards.

British rider Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) goes into the stage as overall race leader, sitting 41 seconds ahead of defending 2017 Giro champion Tom Dumoulin (Team Sunweb). Thibaut Pinot (Groupama-FDJ) is in third at 46 seconds.

The Giro continues with stage 12 on Thursday, a flat stage but with a fourth category climb situated just eight kilometres from the finish in Imola.

The 2018 Giro d’Italia concludes in Rome on Sunday, May 27.
