Cristina in Val Gardena.
The stage starts uphill with the Passes Eira and Foscagno followed after Bormio by the Stelvio. Afterwards long descent and long plains to Bolzano along the Val Venosta and the Valle dell’Adige. From Cardano follows a long climb to Castelrotto and Passo Pinei. After crossing Ortisei, the last few kilometres are a gentle ascent up to the final climb to Monte Pana in S. Cristina.

The stage is short and very challenging, with few kilometers and significant elevation gain. It begins with the ascent of the Sella Pass, and after the Val di Fassa (the only "calm" section), the cyclists will sequentially climb the Passo Rolle, Passo Gobbera, and Passo Brocon until the first checkpoint. The descent to Castello Tesino prepares the terrain for the subsequent ascent from the steepest and uncharted side of Val Malene to Passo Brocon, where the finish line awaits. The last 2 kilometers are very steep, with tight and consecutive hairpin turns, with an average gradient of 12%.

In addition to excursions with electric vehicles to the most beautiful places in South Tyrol, there will be a special supporting programme with an e-test and safety day in Bolzano, a tour of an e-plant, high-class enjoyment evenings and much more.
