Saturday May 21: stage 14 – Alpago to Corvara, 210km: The Dolomite bite.

Quote:
Over the last 150 km of this queen stage across the Dolomites, 6 passes will be climbed, for a total rise and drop of 4,700 m (out of 5,400). The Passo Pordoi, followed by Passo Sella and Passo Gardena (with not even a single flat metre in between), and heads for the first pass over the finish line in Corvara (intermediate sprint). The road then climbs up Passo Campolongo, Passo Giau (the harshest climb of the stage, with an average 9% gradients, and peaks of more than 10-12% over the first kilometres) and Passo Valparola, which leads to the final 5 km.  The route clears Muro del Gatto (360 m, with gradients ranging from 13 to 19%), and then drops down into the trunk road leading to Corvara, still climbing slightly (average slope: 2-3%). The last bend is 150 m from the finish line.

The Climbs:-








Sunday May 22nd: stage 15: Castelrotto/Kastelruth Alpe di Siusi/Seiseralm (ITT)

Quote:
The stage is an uphill individual time trial. After a first false-flat drag (1,800 m), the route climbs steadily over the next 9 km, with an average 8.3% gradient. The road is wide and well paved. Straight stretches alternate with hairpins having a high bend radius. Split time is taken at km 4.4. The final kilometres run entirely uphill, with constant slopes (avg. gradient: 8.0%, max. gradient: 11%), and on wide, well-paved roads. The route takes in a series of hairpins in the stage finale. The finish line lies at the end of a 180-m long and 6-m wide asphalt home straight.

Final kms:-


Tuesday May 24th stage 16  Bressanone/Brixen > Andalo 132km

Quote:
The stage is short, yet it features long climbs and descents. Over the first 40 km, the route runs initially downhill (although the road is deceptively flat) until past Bolzano (intermediate sprint). Here, after clearing the Mendel Pass climb, the road takes a long, undulating descent leading to the foot of the final ascent. The climb is divided in two parts, the first one leading to Fai della Paganella (categorised climb), and the second one running all the way up to the finish. 200 metres before the summit, in the urban area of Fai della Paganella, the climb gradient peaks as high as 15%. The final 10 km are clearly divided into two halves: first a fast-running descent (4 km) on wide roads with sharp downhill gradients, then a mild climb (6 km), growing steeper, up to 2 km from the finish.

The Climbs:-



Final kms:-


Wednesday May 25th stage 17 Molveno > Cassano d’Adda 196km

Quote:
The first half of the stage is wavy, while the second half is perfectly flat. The route rolls along moderate undulations all the way up to km 120 (Brescia), where the road eventually levels out.

I would not be surprised to see the GC men waiting until that little ramp at 5km to go point Rolling Eyes

Lovely weather here today so presumably even nicer further south.

Break has 4'-20"

RAI are so excited to finally have a big mountain stage that they can't stop talking about it. Embarassed

Just watching yesterday's highlights.  Nibali's sprint against Valverde was a decent effort Smile

RAI have reverted to talking about Pantani!

Visconti has been put on minding duty today, so the KOM might easily go Cunego's way now...

I usually like to have a small bet on one or two of the main break, once it has formed, on days like today.  Today's mug @ 33/1 is Señor Ruben Plaza - so I might get a bit of a run for my couple of euros...

The break has pulled itself to pieces.
Clearly, Ulissi is all about getting ahead with half his team, not contesting, eventually dropping back the the bunch and hanging on for the least time loss.
Similar tactic as Movistar of old.

Ruben Plaza now off on one of his epic, 100km solos to victory.
The Dollies are looking dead cute in the sunshine.

Hesjedal abandoned. Just when reaching
Third week territory. To be fair last year was a bit overhyped - he was getting in breaks then limiting losses similar to Ulissi 2016

Yes.
Apparently he heard that I had fp'd him for today. Embarassed

Apart from the fact that I am usually last and fighting over the scraps, I couldn't call a fp if I was first and my life depended upon it.
In the grip of a two year KOD cycle.
It's killing every fantasy thing I enter.

Movistar did all that work, then Astana just takeover on Giau. Nice.

I strongly thought of Suitsov for the FP today, but obviously not strongly enough.  I sense some significant changes coming today, but I'm bound to be disappointed.  

I cashed out on Plaza a few minutes ago... Wink

Good call on Plaza...he just died when they reached him

12 guys left... bit odd for Fuglsang to leave 4th wheel (behind Nibs) and drop back through the group.. but it's done for Jungels and a few others.

Zakarin, Chaves & Amador riding dangerously far back behind the front - although down to so few riders now, not as bad as it was a few mins ago, when there was a good 25-30m off the Astana train.

I thought formolo had been dropped. They've said Joe dumbrowski (I am sorry for the atrocious spelling)

I had thought about atapuma today too but went for de marchi instead

Amador is one hell of a descender in fairness...

Gets back, just in time to get dropped again.
Scarponi riding like it's 2006 rather than 2016.
