Three major climbs today. The first col looms after nearly 55 kilometres, the Passo San Pellegrino, at 1,918 vertical metres. The second one, the Passo del Redebus, is located slightly lower at 1,455 metres with a gradient of 8.5%. Upon reaching the summit the riders drop to 463 metres and then the road goes quickly up again, as they begin the climb to Rifugio Panarotta (1,780 metres).
The ascent to Rifugio Panarotta is a popular one with amateur cyclists. It’s 15,85 kilometres long with an average gradient of 7.9%. The steepest sections are halfway up and hit 14% in places.
All these summit finishes should create plenty of GC changes in the final week.
