    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.

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.

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.
