Giro 2019 Route stage 19: Treviso – San Martino di Castrozza

Giro 2019 stage 19Friday 31 May - At 151 kilometres, the 19th stage is the penultimate mountainous race of the Giro d'Italia. With a start in Treviso and finish in San Martino di Castrozza, the route takes in several climbs, while the ascent to the line amounts to 13.6 kilometres.

Following the start in Treviso the riders head to the foot of the Santa Maria della Vittoria, an easy climb to stretch the legs (and possibly form the breakaway). The route continues to Follina and Tovena to tackle the Passo San Boldo: 6 kilometres at 7.5%. It is an impressive structure with five tunnels blasted into the rock, several hairpins and six bridges. The route descends to Trichiana and continues west to Feltre

After Feltre the Giro moves through Fonzaso and climbs up to Lamon to hit the final ascent in Fiera di Primiero. The San Martino di Castrozza climb amounts to 13.6 kilometres, while its average gradient sits at 5.6%. One could argue that the actual climb begins with the hairpins 5 kilometres before the top. The first 4 kilometres go up at 6.5% before the slope levels out in the last kilometre.

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 109.1 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

Take a look at the favourites for stage success.

The 19th stage of the Giro d’Italia 2019 starts at 13.05 while the race is expected to finish around 17.10 (local times).
