Climbers will probably try to get a good position to gobble up a few more points on the road.  Again, this seems better-suited for the break away, however teams who have yet to feel their taste of glory may take extra chances.

The first 95kms are relatively flat, giving the break a good chance to form and put in serious time over the peloton.  The first intermediate sprint occurs at Rovigo, just outside the feedzone in Boara Pisani. 

The next sprint occurs around 125kms, about 10kms from the first categorized climb of the day—the cat 4 Castelnuovo. The cat-3 Crosara at 160kms is next followed by a few more bumps…until the summit finish on the cat-4 Monte Berico in Vicenza.
