Bradley Wiggins recons key Giro d'Italia climbs

Bradley Wiggins and Jakob Fuglsang, Volta a Catalunya 2013, stage four

Bradley Wiggins (Sky) is reconnoitring the key Giro d'Italia stages ahead of the race next month. Yesterday, he rode part of the Tre Cime di Lavaredo stage and planned visits to other stages around this week's Giro del Trentino.

"Beautiful," Wiggins told La Gazzetta dello Sport sitting in a roadside restaurant near the peaks. "It's going to be a tough stage all and all. The last climb up to this point here, it's not incredibly hard, but the last five kilometres I think are really hard. The whole stage is going to be a tough stage."
