The route has undergone major changes following crowd congestion in the hills behind Sanremo last year. The service park has been switched from Sanremo to Imperia and the rally features some stages not used since the 1970s. However the ambitious plan to run a 43km stage encompassing the classics stages at Colla di Langan and the Passo di Teglia have been scrapped due to roadworks. They will now be split into two stages with a short link section in the middle. After a ceremonial start in Sanremo on Thursday evening the rally is based entirely in the mountains above the town. There are 386.86km of competition in a route of 1426.59km before the finish back in Sanremo on Sunday afternoon. The second leg is the longest of the three with 142.01km of stages.
