Giro d’Italia, 2014: Stage 16, Ponte di Legno to Val Martello, 139km

The road at the 2014 Giro d’Italia tips upward today, with a short, but brutal, race from Ponte di Legno to Val Martello, featuring three tough climbs in rapid succession.

“Brutal” is not an overstatement today. Almost immediately after the start, the peloton takes on the legendary Passo Gavia, followed by the Passo dello Stelvio and then capped off by the 22.4km Category 1 climb to the finish at Val Martello.
