Pro Training

After having left Trento the itinerary of this gruelling stage takes you northwards across the vineyards and orchards of the Adige valley. After Lavis, San Michele and Egna, there's the climb over the Passo di S. Lugano and then the Val di Fiemme: Cavalese, Tesero, Predazzo, Moena and breathtaking views of the Dolomite mountains. Then again uphill to the Passo S. Pellegrino: there you cross into the Belluno province which hosts the final part of the stage. After Falcade, Cencenighe Agordino, Agordo and Caprile, you reach the foot of the Colle di S. Lucia.
Once you are in Selva di Cadore, there are lovely views of the Pelmo and Marmolada mountains to enjoy, but it is soon time to tackle the climb over the Passo di Giau. In a landscape constantly dominated by Dolomite peaks, you reach Pocol and proceed downhill to the Ampezzo hollow. Although you are now approaching yet another climb, that of the Passo Tre Croci, the unique beauty of Lake Misurina and the Tre Cime di Lavaredo makes you get your second wind.
In the Giro of 1981, it was during this stage that Giovanni Battaglin took over the pink jersey from Contini; he then managed to defend the jersey all the way to the last time trial and by doing so became the first and only Venetian ever to have won the Giro.  
Crucial Dolomite stage. It includes 4 GPM climbs and has a combined difference in altitude of over 4000 metres: From the Adige valley, it takes you through the Val di Fiemme and Val di Fassa and over the Passo S: Pellegrino. Ascents to Caprile, to the Belvedere di Colle S. Lucia and over the Passo Giau (10-km climb with an average gradient of over 9%). Steep descent to Cortina and climb over the Passo Tre Croci, Misurina. The finishing line is at the foot of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo; during the last four kilometres, the gradient ranges from 12 to 18%.
