A Mountain stage Which has two distinct parts. As soon as they leave the Lombard town of Ponte de Legno, Peloton will have to climb the Passo del Tonal without a goal of 8.6 km on an average slope to 6.3.
The first attempt will be compensated with a long descent of 70 km. After crossing the Rio Adis, the route enters a steep, demanding section, beginning with the ascent of the Giovo (3a, 5.9 km to 6.8). The next first-class difficulty, 30 km further from the top, is the Valico del Vetriolo (11.8 km at 7.7), which will be climbed by a new slope.
After a further 12 km landing, the pilot will take the road to Menador, with its hair pin bends and tunnels resembling wartime stone-cut roads.
The climb ends at the top of Monterover (1.8 km at 9.8 percent). After 6 undulating kilometers, not easy at all, the finish line is waiting in Laverne.
Departures are scheduled for 12:40 pm and 5:13 pm
