2012 Giro d'Italia, Stage 12 Start
The stage is classified as "medium mountain". The first 53 km are flat with he exception of a short climb at Lerici. At 53 km the stage becomes intense and difficult with four GPM (Gran Premio di Montagna; KoMs):
La Foce km 56.4
Valico di Guaitarola km 95.0
Valico La Mola km 125.4
Villa Tassani km 146.8
Coming to the finish the riders will face a narrowed roadway with 750 m to go followed by a curve at 500 to go.
This should be a particularly interesting and beautiful stage to watch.
Sonny Colbrelli (Colnago CSF), the youngest Italian rider in the Giro, celebrates his 22nd birthday today.
