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.
