Tour of the Alps 2023 Route stage 3: Renon - Brentonico San Valentino

Tour of the Alps 2023 stage 3Wednesday 19 April - The Tour of the Alps' 3rd stage is 162.5 kilometres long and the amount of vertical metres adds up to 2,960. The race from Renon to Brentonico San Valentino finishes on a 15.5 kilometres climb at 7.5%.

Two minor uphills inside the first 5 kilometres make way for a 20 kilometres long descent. The route then climbs to San Michele – 3 kilometres at 4% – before continuing on the flat to Aldeno, situated at the base of the Monte Bondone. This climb will serve as the finale to the Giro d’Italia’s 16th stage, but the Tour of the Alps takes another turn.

The climb to Lago di Cei goes up for 9.7 kilometres and the average gradient sits at 7.7%. But since the last 3 kilometres are more like a false flat the rest is much tougher than that statistic suggests. The third and fourth kilometre are double digit material.

With a fast descent and 25 kilometres of virtually flat terrain the riders reach Avio. This is where the final haul up to San Valentino di Brentonico commences. It is steady climb of 15.5 kilometres with an average gradient of 7.5%.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
