Just like the previous day’s stage, the riders have a period of relative flat terrain to gather momentum before striking out on the slopes of the first category Valico di Valcava mid-stage.

From then on in, it’s a saw-tooth delight for the climbers, culminating in the final ascent to Pian dei Resinelli and an overdue day’s rest for one and all.
