Tomorrow: Stage 1, 130 km in Napoli.  Will Mark Cavendish don the first pink jersey of this Giro? The stage is subdivided into two circuits. The first circuit is 16.4 km long and is ridden 4 times. It includes the climb up the collina di Posillipo (Eng. Posillipo Hill). The lower part of the climb is paved with basalt slabs, with asphalt on the upper slopes (where it is partially worn) and the descent. The climb at Posillipo has a Category 4 GPM on the second and third circuits. The second, shorter circuit is 8 km long and ridden 8 times. It is the same as the first circuit, but without the climb. In other words, it is perfectly flat. Both circuits are along broad avenues, surfaced mostly with asphalt, except for short stretches paved with basalt slabs or cobbled with sanpietrini bricks in good condition. The final kilometeres are along broad, flat avenues with some tramway crossings. The finish is on a straight avenue 950 m long and 8 m wide, surfaced with asphalt.
