Fondo - San Felice
Short stage description
It’s our first day together and even though the climb to the Mendel Pass is of particular beauty and therefore often the timed stretch for the Giro delle Dolomiti and the Tour of the Alps and the Giro d’Italia, we thought it would be too early to measure our physical condition and decided to do a long but less steep climb from Fondo to the Palade Pass on the frontier between Alto Adige Südtirol and the Province of Trento. Also, the Tour of the Alps did the same stretch last year, we will let you know how long it took them :-). After regrouping on the Pass we cycle on the historic wineroad back to Bolzano for Lunch.
Stage 2 | Seiser Alm

Seiser Alm the other way around and for all something never done before. After the nice and scenic climb to Fiè we ride on flat terrain to Siusi and from there to Castelrotto after which the first Giro Sprint of the day starts. After 2km we pause on the Passo Pinei before descending into the Val Gardena valley from where we start the climb to the Seiser Alm - a very unusual climb because no car can do that tour but we will with electric cars only as we will ride in midst of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. After refreshing ourselves on the top we descend back to Bolzano for lunch.

After the base of the norwegian alpine ski team of Andalo and the lake of Molveno we’ll find our first stop, after a quick Giro Sprint, in Ponte di Rendena. Then we cycle to Pinzolo, the base of the summer camps of several Serie A football teams from where the climb to Madonna di Campiglio, a famous ski resort in the Brenta Dolomites, starts.

October 2018 we had a hurricane in this area eradicating millions of trees. You will see yourself the damage the hurricane has done to this amazing landscape. Nonetheless the climbs, the views, the surroundings are unique and will give you memories you can only dream of. From Bolzano we climb to Tiers then to Saint Cyprian from where the time stretched part begins. And it’s the beginning which is very tough. But earn for yourself.
