  • Stage 1 | Jaufenpass

    22 July - 1859 m | 163 km
    S. Leonardo in Passiria - Passo Giovo

    Results Stage 1 | Jaufenpass
    Short stage description

    Have you ever ridden though Merano? Have you ever done part of the Otztaler Marathon? We will do that after about 30km from Bolzano of flattish roads. We then start to climb very gently until we reach St. Leonhard in Passeier where the timed stretch begins. The Jaufenpass is a very long and occasionally steep – a reminder to ask ourselves why we do all this. However, almost up on the peak you will be enjoying an amazing view. Once over the pass, we drive past Vipiteno and Bressanone to Bolzano.

  • Stage 2 | Obereggen

    23 July - 2296 m | 78 km
    Novale - Passo Pampeago

    Results Stage 2 | Obereggen
    Short stage description

    Right after Bolzano we start climbing through the Val d’Ega. It’s a beautiful, however sometimes claustrophobic valley which takes us to Rauth where the timed stretch starts. The climb so far was gentle but it’s now that the tough part starts. For about 3km we climb at more then 12% until we see on our right the basecamp of the skislopes. Then it starts to flatten until the peak. Once passed over, we need to climb the Lavaze still before going back to Bolzano via the Val d’Ega at about lunchtime.

  • Stage 3 | Sellaronda

    24 July - 3275 m | 155 km
    Corvara - Passo Gardena

    Results Stage 3 | Sellaronda
    Short stage description

    It is surely the highlight of the Giro delle Dolomiti. The length, the altitude, the beauty of the scenery make it unique. Starting and ending in Bolzano is a long ride, and knowing that the day after there’s plenty of time to recover (Rest Day), we stroll through the Valle Isarco, entering from there the Val Gardena. Hopping over the Sella in a gentle pace and the Pordoi thereafter, its being and staying on high altitude that the Giro does not seem that long. In Corvara we start the timed stretch which will take us to the Passo Gardena in probably less then 1h, or a bit more. Surely, the overall gentle climb (there are a few steep exceptions though) and the scenery make the pain more bearable.

  • Stage 4 | Stelvio

    26 July - 1851 m | 67 km
    Prato allo Stelvio - Passo dello Stelvio

    Results Stage 4 | Stelvio
    Short stage description

    The Giro d’Italia has climbed many times the Stelvio. The Stelvio is a must-do for every cyclist and doing it w/o traffic is a unique proposition. At almost 3.000m altitude the Stelvio can be a surprise to many. Weather conditions can change rapidly and the 48 hairpins to the peak are a tough climb as not even the turns do allow resting time for the rider. The timed stretch starts from the beginning and goes first to Gomagoi, then to Trafoi and finally to the Franzenshöhe where the peak can already be seen. Once over the top we cycle through Switzerland back to Prato allo Stelvio – always downhill. Don’t forget your passport.

  • Stage 5 | Seiser Alm

    27 July - 1615 m | 61 km
    Siusi - Alpe di Siusi

    Results Stage 5 | Seiser Alm
    Short stage description

    Its a short tour but a beautiful setting. Starting from Bolzano it is a not-so-easy climb to Fiè. However it’s only 15km from Bolzano therefore there’s plenty of strength in our muscles leading us to Siusi where the timed stretch starts. The Giro did it a few times – we do it in our own pace. Climbing through hairpin turns, we are at the top of the mountain in a strikingly beautiful scenery, enjoying a 360-degree photoshoot. We ride back to Bolzano via Ponte Gardena for lunch.

  • Stage 6 | Team Crono

    28 July - 132 m | 57 km
    Golf Club Eppan - Golf Club Eppan

    Results Stage 6 | Team Crono
    Short stage description

    Alone or in a group. Last year’s winners group were an assembled group of 4 nations which met during the Giro! That’s exactly the spirit of the last day. It is a joyful final race event, that’s why also slipstream riding is fine. Your time will be taken, it does not matter if riding individually or in a group. Your time will count towards your overall individual standing. But being a flat course, probably riding in a group will makes you faster.
