Tuesday 5th July, h 11:00 am
After “Cesena – Cesena” which saw the victory of Annemiek van Vleuten (MOVISTAR TEAM WOMEN), new Pink Jersey, today Tuesday 5th July the challenges in Emilia-Romagna end with 126.1 km of the “Carpi – Reggio Emilia” stage. A race dedicated to sprinters, the longest of this edition, starting at h 11.00 am and touching the municipalities of Campogalliano, San Martino in Rio, Correggio, Campagnola Emilia and Poviglio. The “traguardo volante” (flying finish line) is set at km 63.6 and the route does not feature any slope up to this point. At km 80 the plane interrupts and a climb starts, leading to the first Apennine elevations around Bibbiano, Montecavolo, Albinea and Fogliano before entering in Reggio Emilia to cross the finish line placed right next to Parco del Popolo. The stage thus runs through small-to-medium Aemilian settlements, passing through the vast farming lands which give life to the great eno-gastronomic tradition of the Region. The arrival time is estimated around 2:15 pm.
132 contestants at the start, Yeny Lorena Colmenares Colmenares (COLOMBIA TIERRA DE ATLETAS GW SHIMANO)will not participate.

CARPI (MO), 72,000 inhabitants
Stretched out in the plains near Modena, with its 72,000 inhabitants Carpi is one of the most populous Italian cities not being a provincial/regional capital. Known as a centre of excellence in the textile and fashion sectors as well as food and wine (thanks to balsamic vinegar, Parmesan Reggiano cheese and Lambrusco wine), it’s a land of famous scientists such as Berengario and Ramazzini alongside iconic sportsmen such as Dorando Pietri and Gregorio Paltrinieri. Carpi is also an important logistic hub, thanks to the A22 highway and the nearby high-speed train station Mediopadana. The city boasts a past marked by the influence of the Pio family, which designed the current city centre dominated by the spectacular Piazza dei Martiri (Martyrs’ Square), one of the largest in Europe, overlooked by the majestic Renaissance Palace, the Cathedral and the “long colonnade” with 52 arches over 240 metres. Outside the city, the township of Fossoli still preserves the homonymous prison camp.
REGGIO EMILIA (RE), 170,283 inhabitants
Warm welcomes are contagious in Reggio Emilia… and not just while dining! The city knows how to be a true community. Reggio’s art tradition has left a meaningful heritage in the Seventeenth century, such as the Basilica della Ghiara, as well as in the Nineteenth century with Valli Municipal Theatre. Famous in the world for the Reggio Approach, which makes it the capital of childhood and education, Reggio Emilia is a city of contemporaneity, offering unique works such as the Mediopadana high-speed station and the three bridges by Santiago Calatrava together with the New Museum by Italo Rota. The Italian flag was first designed here in 1797. Reggio Emilia also holds the Italian record of 257 kilometres of cycling roads, allowing our fellow cyclists to get anywhere by bike.
