When the historical cycling race celebrates it 100th edition, Sardinia becomes the scenic setting of the Big Start for the third time, after the 1991 and the 2007 editions , hosting three stages for sprinters and finisseurs.
The race will include three in line stages on the island: Alghero-Olbia on the 5th of May (203km), Olbia-Tortolì on the 6th of May (208km) and Tortolì-Cagliari on the 7th of May (148km).
The third stage is almost flat, with few mild hills along the course. After Villasimius there are some short punchy climbs along the coastal route.
After that the road becomes flat toward the finish line in Cagliari until what’s likely to be a bunch sprint.
