STAGE 3 | SELLARONDA
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.
