Giro d'Italia in South Tyrol
South Tyrol connoisseurs know: The steeper the routes and the more exhausting the climbs, the nicer the surrounding mountain scenery that pays for every exertion.
Probably also the organizers of the international cycle race Giro d’Italia agree about this.
Nearly every year the map of the legendary cycle tour through Italy includes a stage in the South Tyrolean mountains and almost every time the Giro d’Italia revalues its mountain program with a challenging stage in the South Tyrolean Dolomites, through other mountain regions or on famous mountain passes.
For instance in the last years the participants of the Giro had to reach several times the mountain top of Kronplatz and manage ascending slopes up to 24%.
Three stages in Trentino South Tyrol this year
This year, the Giro d'Italia doesn't include this difficult distance, but the bikers have to tackle three demanding stages scheduled for 24th, 25th and 26th May 2017 in the South Tyrolean Dolomites.
