BROCHURE 2022

VAL DI FIEMME

24 July – 1.980 m | 87,3 km | h. 9.00
Crono     Cavalese – Passo Lavazè | 10,4 km • 798 m

SHORT STAGE DESCRIPTION

Departing from Bolzano in the direction of San Giacomo and Laives, we travel along roads with little traffic as far as Ora, where the road climbs with several hairpin bends along a steep porphyry wall and then opens out onto a natural terrace. With a slight gradient we reach the Lugano Pass (border between South Tyrol and Trentino) and then descend to Cavalese, the main village of the Val di Fiemme Valley. Here begins the climb to Passo Lavazè, the timed section of this stage. On reaching the finish, the road descends to Novale/Rauth, where it turns right to tackle the demanding ascent to Obereggen, the well-known ski and hiking resort at the foot of the Latemar mountain. After this last effort, a long descent to Bolzano awaits us.

SELLARONDA

25 July – 3.400 m | 159,5 km | h. 9.00
Crono Selva Val Gardena  – Passo Sella | 10,4 km • 704 m

SHORT STAGE DESCRIPTION

A spectacular stage around the Sella group that any cyclist should have done at least once in his or her life. The fatigue of the ascent to the four passes is compensated by the fun descents while the eyes admire the green pastures and the majesty of the shimmering mountains that surround us. Once the group has reached Selva Gardena, where the timed section to the Sella Pass begins, everyone must find the right cadence in order not only to conquer the Sella, but also to have the strength for the other three passes, namely the Pordoi Pass, the Campolongo Pass and the Gardena Pass, which after the summit finish gives way to an almost interminable descent to Bolzano.

PASSO STELVIO 

26 July – 1.893 m | 63,7 km | h. 9.00
Crono  Prato allo Stelvio – Passo Stelvio | 23,2 km • 1.808 m

SHORT STAGE DESCRIPTION

Bus transfer from Bolzano to Prato dello Stelvio where a rich refreshment awaits us before starting the legendary climb up the Stelvio Pass. As soon as we leave the village we are on the starting line of the timed section. With still pedalable gradients we reach the villages of Gomagoi and Trafoi. Here we begin the 48 U-turns on the South Tyrolean side. It is surely one of the most impressive roads in the world! Not for nothing is it called “the Queen of Alpine roads.” The road was built between 1820 and 1928 as an alternative route between Tyrol and Lombardy region, then Austro-Hungarian territory. At the top we descend toward Bormio and after a few km we turn left to take us over the Umbrail Pass (Giogo di S. Maria), on the border between Italy and Switzerland. On Swiss territory we descend to S.Maria Münstair where we enter the Monastero Valley that takes us back to Italy. Having reached the town of Glorenza, it is only a short distance to the starting point of this stage.

PASSO FEDAIA 

27 July – 2.898 m | 142 km | h. 9.00
Crono Penia – Lago di Fedaia  | 7,3 km • 504 m

SHORT STAGE DESCRIPTION

This stage takes us to the foot of the highest mountain in the Dolomites, Marmolada, 3,343 m.a.s.l. covered with the only glacier ice in the Dolomites. After tackling the long ascent that leads from Bolzano to the Carezza Pass, we descend into the Fassa Valley, which we ride to Canazei to join the SS 641 that takes us over the Fedaia Pass. In Penia is the starting line for the timed section, a stretch that is not particularly long but no less challenging than the previous ones, ending on the dam of Lake Fedaia, at the foot of the Marmolada. The return follows the way of the outward journey to the Costalunga Pass where we head on a false flat to the Nigra Pass and then quickly descend to Tires and continue on to Prato Isarco where we find ourselves back on the SS 12 leading to Bolzano.
