Today’s Stage

Stage 10: Gemona del Friuli to Trieste

Distance: 169 km

The final stage! For the last stage the riders will traditionally ride in as a group. Once they get to Trieste, however, there will be 8 laps of 7.3 kilometers and a ferocious bunch sprint to the line.

This is a single day stage and there are special prizes up for grabs. It still counts towards the overall results, just like the other stages.

Inspired? How about this route?

Newry Canal Towpath

This cycle and walking route from the Bann Bridge in Portadown to the Town Hall in Newry is a 20 mile trip on part of route 9 of the National Cycle Network. The route follows the towpath on the western bank of the, now non-navigable, Newry Canal.
