The start ramp is located in Trento, town of Leonardo Bertagnolli and the Mosers. The route runs through the Trentino-Alto Adige/Südtirol region, home of the Tour of the Alps, which is often used as a preparation for the Giro.
The first intermediate time check is at kilometre 12.9 in Aldeno, a village at the foot of the Monte Bondone climb. Yet, the riders leave the 2,180 metres peak alone and head further south to Rovereto.
The second half of the route is more hilly. With 10 kilometres left the road points uphill for 500 metres. The first half of it rises with double digit gradients before the hill flattens out. The second intermediate check point is located just over the top.
With 5.6 kilometres remaining the route climbs at 3% for 900 metres, while the ultimate kilometres begin with 600 metres at 3 to 4%. Some 500 metres before the line a small stretch of pavé appears.
The ITT ends in Rovereto, home town of the Bertolinis, of whom Alessandro is the best known member – or, the least unknown. In 2008, aged 36, he won a stage in the Giro.
