Plan di Montecampione
In wintertime Montecampione is a ski resort. It’s located at an altitude of 1,665 metres, so on May 25th the landscape will undoubtedly still show some white spots as is common in the Giro.
Coming out of the valley the road rises 1,446 verical metres in almost 19 kilometres. The climb is long and there is no let up at any point. The first 8 kilometres rise by an average gradient of 8% and end with a stretch of 12%. The middle section is the friendliest part of the climb, but is immediately followed by the grueling last 5 last kilometres taking the riders to the top at an 9% average.
