The average course is only on paper! The first part is common and after the 15 km of flat, you will climb the Polenta by the beautiful town of Bertinoro. After a few hilly kilometers, the Colli de Pieve di Rivoschio and the Ciola are presented with demanding passages. After a nice descent, you arrive at the pretty village of Mercato Saraceno where the famous Barbotto and its final with 20% passes will start. The end of the course is more rolling, but there will remain some faux-dishes before the return on a dozen flat kilometers before the beautiful festive arrival in Cesenatico.
