After yesterday's extraordinary show by Annemiek Van Vleuten who, in Arcidosso, scrambled her rivals, the Giro Rosa restarts this morning with a redesigned general classification and a fraction that promises just as much show. In fact, Annemiek Van Vleuten wears the leader's pink jersey with an advantage of 1'18 '' over Anna Van Der Breggen and 1'33 'over Katarzyna Niewiadoma. Today could be the right opportunity for the opponents to recover precious time even if the dominance of the reigning world champion seems uneatable. A fraction of 142.2 kilometers is scheduled, starting from Santa Fiora and arriving in Assisi. No peace for the athletes. The third fraction will be characterized by continuous ups and downs that will ferry the race towards Assisi. At the fiftieth kilometer the first Mountain Grand Prix in San Casciani dei Bagni, third category. From that moment the track seems to soften: it is an illusion. The finish is all upwards towards Assisi where a first-class GPM is located.

Italian town that is part of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Its territory ranges from purely hilly scenarios to mountainous flashes. Moreover, since 2015, Santa Fiora has obtained, for its well-known tourist qualities, the Orange Flag of the Italian Touring Club. Nature is luxuriant in Santa Fiora: the Provincial Nature Reserve of the Holy Trinity, hosting the convent of the Trinità alla Selva, extends for 38 hectares on the west side of Monte Calvo. Santa Fiora also has a museum that is part of the provincial network of Maremma Museums.
The Giro Rosa arrives in Umbria, in the province of Perugia. Assisi, located on the north-western side of Mount Subasio, is the city where San Francesco and Santa Chiara lived and died. Since 2000, the city of Assisi with almost all of the municipal territory has been included among the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. There are countless churches and sacred buildings in the area: Cathedral of San Rufino, Church of Santa Maria Maggiore, Church of San Pietro and Oratorio dei Pellegrini, among others. A special mention goes to the Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi and the Basilica of Santa Chiara. The first is divided into a lower part, where the remains of the saint are kept, and an upper part: in 1754 it was elevated to the patriarchal basilica and papal chapel by Benedetto XIV. The Basilica of Santa Chiara is built in the Gothic style and, on the facade, is very reminiscent of the almost contemporary Upper Basilica of San Francesco d’Assisi. Among the main events held in the city we remember the 'March for Peace Perugia-Assisi.
