Tirreno-Adriatico 2022, today’s stage Sefro-Fermo: schedules, route, favorites, TV, streaming


Today, Friday 11 March, the fifth stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico 2022 will take place. Departure set in Sefro to arrive in Fermo after a distance of 155 km. It starts with yesterday’s Tadej Pogacar victory over Bellante’s arrival which allowed him to take the blue jersey as well. Today’s stage presents an ending that could smile to the same men who did well yesterday, with a very tough final circuit full of pitfalls.




The fifth stage of the Corsa dei due Mari will be covered entirely in the Marche region, which will host the last three stages in the program. The route immediately includes a long climb towards the Valico di Pietra Rossa which, although not classified as a GPM, will put the riders on an ascent of 12.3 km at 3.4% average gradient. Having overcome the first obstacle, the road will continue with a series of ups and downs that will lead up to the first GPM of the day, the 2.3 km at 7.2% of Monte Urano, located 50 km from the finish. Once in Lido di Fermo, the road will begin the short ascent towards the flying finish line of Capodarco, from which the runners will take the entrance to the treacherous final circuit. You will climb towards Fermo three times, first stopping in Piazza del Popolo, then passing on the hard stretch towards Madonna d’Ete (2.2 km at 8.5% average gradient) 10 km from the finish. At that point, after a downhill stretch, the last and decisive ascent will begin towards the finish line of Fermo, located in Piazza Girifalco, after a climb of 3.2 km with an initial infernal stretch in which the slopes will even exceed 20% , and then soften after the flamme rouge .


The route does not have very hard or very long climbs, but it is obviously terrain for climbers. It could be a suitable race for an escape attempt, but yesterday we had confirmation that Tadej Pogacar and Remco Evenepoel have no intention of wasting any chance of making a difference. The Slovenian looks in better shape than ever and is inevitably the number one favorite, followed by the young Belgian. Also worth considering is Jonas Vingegaard who did very well yesterday, as well as Tao Geoghegan Hart, Jai Hindley and the blue Giulio Ciccone, who seems to have finally found himself. The harsh slopes of the final could be a great opportunity for riders like Thibaut Pinot, Miguel Angel Lopez and Mikel Landa. Impossible to leave out the world champion Julian Alaphilippe, as well as Rafal Majka and Marc Soler, bearing in mind that none of the three should be the first option of their team.
