The route of Tirreno-Adriatico 2024 presented


One individual time trial, three stages for sprinters, two for finisseurs and one uphill finish. That's the menù of the 59th edition of the Tirreno-Adriatico Crédit Agricole that will take place March 4-10, 2024. The Race of the Two Seas will touchà in its 1115-kilometer journey, four regions of Central Italy starting in Tuscany and passing through Umbria and Abruzzo before ending, as has become tradition, in the Marche.


Mauro Vegni, RCS Sport Cycling Area Director: "As in past editions, it promises to be an enthralling and spectacular Tirreno-Adriatico, full of great stars who have made it so that the Corsa dei Due Mari has become by detachment the most prestigious one-week race in the world. Both the stages and the general classification are the territory of conquest of riders who are successively great protagonists throughout the season, from the Classics to the three-week races. All these conditions create great interest and make it so that for the territories there is a moment of enormous visibility; also thanks to the live TV scheduled globally".

Stefano Allocchio, RCS Sport Race Director: "As per recent tradition, we have mapped out a route that can, over the course of a week, offer chances to all types of runners. We start with a time trial, on a route that has seen Filippo Ganna triumph in the last two years, and close with a fraction for fast wheels in San Benedetto del Tronto. In between we have two stages for sprinters, two mid-mountain stages and an uphill finish at Monte Petrano, a 10-kilometer climb with an average gradient of 8 percent. The fight for the Maglia Azzurra will be as hard-fought as it is every year and we are confident that the winner, as usual, will be a complete rider".

Daniele Bennati, Technical Commissioner of the Italian National Team: "Once again this year promises to be a compelling edition, from the technical point of view it will be important to evaluate the exploits of the riders on each type of track. I hope as the Technical Commissioner of our National Team to see Italian riders excel and put on a show so as to have important indications for then what will be the international competitions of 2024 such as the Olympics and World Championships. I really like the route, è well balanced and I am sure we will experience a great week of cycling".

Antonio Spazzafumo, Mayor of San Benedetto del Tronto: "By now San Benedetto del Tronto è in the DNA of this race as we have hosted the grand finale of all editions except the first year. This race è is very important for us as it è a vehicle for promoting our territory and we are happy to have the final stage again in 2024 with the circuit crossing our streets before the arrival on the Lungomare".

Marcello Pierucci, Mayor of Camaiore: "2024 will beà for Camaiore a year to celebrate: it will be the tenth consecutive time that we will host the first two stages of the Tirreno-Adriatico. Since far-off 2014, each edition renews the enthusiasm and honor of having become, by now in its own right, the official starting venue of the Race of the Two Seas. Ours è is a true land of cycling: a decade-long history that is renewed and continues to develop, evolve and strengthen, protecting a passion widespread in our community that will never stop burning in the hearts of so many fans. Camaiore and the Tirreno-Adriatico: a now traditional pairing, destined to strengthen, endure and grow more and more.

Perfectly flat individual time trial consisting of a two practically straight sectors running out and back on the Camaiore and Viareggio seafronts with only a few connecting turns and the “turnaround”. U-turn at km 5.4 in Viareggio where the intermediate time is taken. Subsequent straight return to Lido di Camaiore where an S turn leads into the ’last kilometer

Last kilometers
The last 3 kilometers are flat in a northerly direction consisting of a long straight that at 1600 m from the’finish has a pair of left-right turns that leads onto the promenade where about 300m from the’finish another pair of right-left turns leads into the final straight. Arrival on asphalt width 7 m.


Moving and articulated stage especially in the second part. Departing from Camaiore and through Montemagno we first reach Pisa and then the Livornese to leave the completely flat part and climb to Castellina Marittima where we continue south through Riparbella and Canneto. Once you finish the long stretch that follows, mostly downhill, you enter the final circuit of about 20 km to be repeated once.

Last few kilometers
Final circuit almost entirely urban with some turns. Last km mostly straight, on asphalt, 8 m roadway.


Very long and fairly undulating stage in the first part that runs through the Sienese hills, also crossing Siena. Of note in the first section are four consecutive level crossings on the same (secondary) line. After Torrita di Siena the roughness softens and along the plain of Trasimeno leading to Perugia one travels mostly straight roads at times with narrow roadways. You then face the long, pedalable climb of Casacastalda whose descent leads directly to the’finish. Very articulated and challenging road especially on the descent.

Last few kilometers
Last kilometers undulating and mostly downhill until the’last kilometer where there is a rather pronounced turn to the left point of the beginning of the final. The road first presents wide curves and then ends in a straight line. The final straight è slightly uphill with gradients around 4%. Finish line on asphalt straight 8 m wide.


Stage divided into two parts: the’approach to the final circuit and the circuit itself. The first part takes place within the Sibillini Mountains of which, after Norcia, we climb the Valico di Castelluccio to cross the Piana of the same name and through the Forca di Presta to reach Arquata del Tronto and the Salaria where Salaria are to be reported numerous tunnels and some narrowing, but predominantly we move on wide and averagely well paved road. Some city crossings present the usual obstacles of the urban’furniture and at km 178 we enter the final circuit.

Last kilometers
Last kilometers within a 22.7 km circuit to be repeated once. Circuit consisting of an undulating first part through Mosciano Sant’Angelo followed by a slightly downhill sector until reaching the sea. Last 3 km slightly uphill at about 4.5%. Arrival on asphalt at 2% for the last 400 m.


Very bumpy stage with a difficult climb in the finale. The’entire route has no breathing room. From Torricella Sicura, after km 0 placed in Teramo at the end of the initial descent, è a continuous succession of climbs and descents. It passes through some places much frequented by the Corsa dei Due Mari recently such as Castellalto and Bellante and some from the recent past such as Campli and Civitella del Tronto. The route is extremely articulated both altimetrically and planimetrically. It takes place mainly on roads with slightly worn and medium-sized roadway. After Villa Lempa climb to San Giacomo from the eastern slope (12 km at 6.2% average) and subsequent descent into the Castellano valley with 10 km flat next to the Lake.

Last few kilometers
Final flat kilometers until the last kilometer or so where los trappo begins leading to the’finish with average gradient around 7% and slightly higher peaks. The finish straight measures a width of 7 m and è 180 m long on a slightly uphill asphalt surface.


È the toughest stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico with an uphill finish. It probes along the valleys of the Marche interior with continuous ups and downs in the first part interspersed with some major climbs such as the Forchetta di Valle Avellana and the Pian di Trebbio climb. On the slopes of Monte Petrano we climb the short, steep climb of Moria (about 2.5 km at 9 percent) to reach Cagli where the final ascent begins.

Last few kilometers
The last kilometers consist of the climb to Monte Petrano. Climb of 10.1 km at 8.1% average gradient, steep in the first kilometers (up to 12%), constant in the second part characterized by numerous hairpin bends. On reaching the vicinity of the summit plateau the gradient decreases. Almost flat finishing straight of 100 m, 6 m wide on asphalt surface.


Moving stage in the first part and absolutely flat in the last 80 km. Start immediately uphill with passage Monteprandone and then challenging climb to Montedinove. Followed by a bit of up and down through Montalto delle Marche until passing Ripatransone. Long descent to Grottammare before entering the circuit of about 15 km to be repeated 5 times. Circuit route mostly on straight, wide, paved roads.

Last few km
Last 3km on wide and mostly straight roads some semi-curves on medium width roads in the first part. Last double curve about 1km from the’finish. Roadway of 8 m, asphalt surface.


At the 59th edition of the Race of the Two Seas, it will be Sportful once again providing the four leader jerseys. From the coveted Maglia Azzurra as leader of the general classification to the Maglia Ciclamino of the points classification via the Green Jersey of the GPMs and the Maglia Bianca reserved for riders born after January 1, 1999. Who will take home the symbols of primacy?
