From Apparita, you continue in the forest for around 2km with a few ups and downs that take you through the villages of Resi and Olivello. From here, you have to take the pleasant Serpentaio descent, which leads you to Miniere di Murlo. You then continue along the Crevolicchio river to face the Terre Rosse ascent until you reach the crossroad for the Farnese road. You then have a few more metres of ascent followed by a quick descent which takes you to the Poggetto sprint that's quick but demanding. From here, there's a quick descent and then again a brief sprint to arrive at Vescovado to conclude the first tour.
The competitors complete another lap of 12km, returning to the Etruscan excavation site to face the descent from Montorgiali to the village of Miniere. From here, you go back to the final part of the first loop and then return to the final finish line, at Vescovado.
