In this Stage will introduce the first climbs. A difficult crossing of Romagna, a region also called “the garden of Italy”; stops at the crops are recommended to enjoy the fresh fruit just harvested. The first mountain chains of the Apennines are faced, meeting the hot springs of Riolo, this will be a sign of the gradual beginning of the ups and downs, so the plain will be a memory. Immersed in the woods of fir trees, you will pass the Sambuca Pass, 10 km long with slopes of 5/8%, then will descend to the village of San Lorenzo and, crossing the Sieve river near to the native village of Leonardo da Vinci, Dicomano Stage will welcomes us to its point of control.
