Toscana

Preview

The 18th Giro Della Toscana has a much greater prominance in the calendar in 2013. The Tuscany race will be the final tour again in lead up to the World Championship, but this year they are in the same location and in the case of the final stage in Florence, where the World Championships will start on the 22 September. This year, more than other years, will see the top teams using the event to do last minutes preparations. 

Stages

PROLOGO: Campi Bisenzio 2.2km - The opening prologue, is short and fast and will provide a great chance to show how preparation is going for worlds. Expect the top time triallists from this season, Ellen van Dijk (Specialized-lululemon) Linda Villumsen (Wiggle Honda), Shara Gillow (Orica- AIS), Emma Johansson (Orica-AIS), Tatiana Guderzo (Mcipollini Giordana), Lisa Brennauer (Specialized Lululemon), Trixi Worrack (Specialized Lululemon), Marianne Vos (Rabo Women) and Evie Stephens (Specialized Lululemon) to be in the top group.

Stage 1: Bottegone- Massa 126.15km -This is one for the climbers, with 4 category 2 climbs, expect Mara Abbott (USA) and Evie Stephens (Specialized Lululemon) to battle this one out. Although Emma Johansson, Tiffany Cromwell and Shara Gillow (Orica-AIS), Claudia Häusler (Tibco To The Top) and if she has recovered Marianne Vos (Rabo Women) should not be discounted.

Stage 2: Porcari – Pontedera 110.05 km -This one should be one for the sprinters. Expect Giorgia Bronzini (Wiggle Honda) to be in the mix on this stage. Lizzie Armitstead (Boels Dolmans), Kirsten Wild (Argos Shimano) and Marta Tagliaferro and Valentina Scandolara (McCipollini Giodana) could cause an upset.

Stage 3: Segromigno – Capannori 124.00km - This is another one for the climbers, with 6 tough climbs that includes 4 category 2 and two category 1 climbs. This one will be controlled by the top teams until they get to the base of the first Cat 1 climb after 78km. The earlier climbs will have thinned out the peloton but it is the last two that will do the damage. 

Stage 4: Lucca – Firenze 104.9km - The final stage uses part of the roads that will be used for the women's world championships road race. With na couple of short steep climbs, it could be controlled right until the last 20km.
