On the traces of the Giro d’Italia

General description

As racing cyclist one should meanwhile not miss this classic
On the 27th of May, 2014 won Nairo Quintana (MOV) this stage.

Route description

Our efforts start at Laces. Comfortable training to Coldrano and at the roundabout into the Val Martello. Past Morter start the first slopes and loop lines. The way can’t be missed: It always goes up, always along the street past the Santa Maria Church and the biathlon center until the barrier lake (1.843m). With the beautiful view on the lake we can take a breath- but this doesn’t last long times. Across other loop lines it goes up to the end of the Val Martello, where take a break in the guesthouse Schönblick (2.056). Afterwards it goes on the same tour back - mostly downhill – to Coldrano and the last kilometers to Laces.
