Frontone – Foligno, the sprinters are back


After a couple of grueling days, the athletes of the Giro d’Italia Women 2024, or at least some of them, will have the chance to “relax” a bit with a nice flat stage in central Italy. 111 km from Frontone to Foligno, only one short KOM after just a few km, that of Morello, after which the Via Flaminia, a long and undulating but not selective road, will lead the peloton to the finish, with the Umbro-Marchigiano Apennines in the background.

Frontone is a delightful village, best known for its striking Castello della Porta, a medieval fortress overlooking the town and offering spectacular views of the Marche hills and nearby Monte Catria. Surrounded by nature, this is the perfect destination for those who enjoy outdoor sports. Frontone is also prized for its culinary traditions, which reflect the rich gastronomy of the Marche region, with dishes consisting of mushrooms, truffles and other local specialties.

The stage arrival is located in Umbria, namely in Foligno, along the banks of the Topino River. This town is famous for the Giostra della Quintana, a Renaissance chivalric tournament held twice a year, attracting visitors and enthusiasts from all over Italy, but in addition to its history and culture, Foligno offers delicious local cuisine, with Umbrian specialties such as porchetta, cured meats, and olive oil that demand to be tasted.

Frontone returns to great cycling after 26 years: it was in fact 1998 when it hosted the arrival of a stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico. Foligno, on the other hand, has become a usual destination both for the Corsa dei Due Mari, which in the new millennium has held 4 finishes and 3 starts in this Umbrian town, and for the Giro d’Italia, which in the past 10 years has come to Foligno a total of 7 times, with 4 starts and 3 finishes, which have seen Nacer Bouhanni, André Greipel and Peter Sagan emerge victorious.
