Giro 2018 Route Stage 16: Trento - Rovereto

Giro 2018 stage 16Tuesday, 22 May 2018 - The 16th stage of the Giro d'Italia is an individual time trial of 34.2 kilometres. The first half of the race is played out on the flat, the second half on more rolling terrain.

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 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 slightly more hilly. With 10 kilometres left to race until 5 kilometres before the finish the riders climb a false flat section that sometimes goes up to gradients of 4 to 5%. The second intermediate check point is with almost 10 kilometres remaining, just after the steepest ramps in the route.

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.

The first rider leaves the ramp at 13:30 and the arrival of the last one is expected around 17:15 – both local times.
