This “saw blade” of a stage will be a real leg-buster with 5 categorized climbs, including a summit finish! The riders will traverse 177kms from Pinzolo to Aprica with a cat-2, the Campo Carlo Magno, within the first 13kms. 

Almost immediately upon the hard descent, the riders will face the cat-2 Passo Del Tonale where the feed zone awaits the riders in the valley.  On the slopes of the cat-3 Aprica, the riders will also face the first intermediate sprint.  The second sprint occurs in the valley after Aprica in Tirano.  A small bump, then the riders will tackle the step cat-1 Passo Del Mortirolo.  My vote is to launch an attack on the descent before climbing to the summit finish, again on the cat-3 Aprica.
