Giro d’Italia 2018 Stage 3 Profile. Sunday, May 6 – Be’er Sheva / Eilat
Length: 229 km
Stage 3 is a 229 km going from Be’er Sheva to Eilat. That’s the Negev Desert stage, running by Ben Gurion’s landmarks (the founder of Israel), in particular Sde Boker with his grave. The course runs through Ramon Crater (the largest one in the world, with a 40-km diameter) where the approx. 1200-meter very steep climb is the categorized climb of the day. A field sprint finish in Eilat, a seaside resort on the Red Sea, is to be expected.
