Thursday May 26: stage 18- Muggiò > Pinerolo 244km

Quote:
Flat for 170 km, this stage will have a more challenging finale. The route initially runs across the entire northwestern Po Plain, from Milano to Torino, along mainly straight and wide roads. The stage course cuts across a few major cities, where the common traffic calming devices will be found. After reaching Pinerolo (and clearing Colletta di Cumiana), the route takes a first pass over the finish line, climbs up the steep Via dei Principi d’Acaja stretch, tackles the Pramartino climb and goes back to Pinerolo. 2,500 m before the finish, the route turns left and climbs up Via Principi d’Acaja (average 14% gradient and peaks of 20%, on setts-paved and narrow road). Next is a steep and harsh descent leading into Pinerolo. The last 1,500 m run on level roads, with just a few bends and a short stretch on stone-slab paving.

Friday May27th stage 19 - Pinerolo > Risoul 162km

Quote:
This is a high mountain stage featuring a summit finish, and “home” to the Cima Coppi. The route runs constantly uphill (on deceptively flat roads) over 80 km, all the way up to Casteldelfino. Here the road starts to climb up Colle dell’Agnello (Cima Coppi, 2744 m). The following 40 km run mostly downhill and lead to Guillestre, at the foot of the final climb. Beware of a few tunnels around km 135. The last 13 km run entirely uphill, with an average 7% gradient and 15 hairpins. The roadway is very wide and well surfaced. The home straight, 150 m in length, on 6-m wide asphalt road, has an 8% uphill gradient.

Final Kms:-



Saturday May 28th stage 20 - Guillestre >  Sant’Anna di Vinadio 134km

Quote:
This short queen stage across the Alps features a remarkable 4,100 m rise and drop in as little as 134 km, with a sequence of 4 climbs and 3 descents and not even a single flat stretch in between. The route climbs up Col de Vars (19 km), Col de la Bonette (22 km), Col de la Lombarde (20 km) and the final 2.3 km leading to the Sant’Anna Sanctuary. The road is wide and well-surfaced along all of the climbs (mostly above 2,000 m), with many hairpins. The roadway only narrows along the technical descent from Col de la Lombarde, all the way up to the last 2.3 km. The route climbs steadily over the last 2,300 m, with gradients ranging from 9% to 11%. The road is quite narrow, with a few hairpins. The last few hundred metres of the route run among the Sanctuary’s buildings, with short uphill stretches and tight bends.

Final Kms:-



Sunday May 29th stage 21 -  Cuneo > Torino 163km

Quote:
The route starts in Cuneo, runs through Borgo San Dalmazzo and then heads towards Torino, leaving Cuneo to the south-east. The stage course runs along wide and straight trunk roads across the plain, all the way up to Torino, where a final circuit shall be covered 8 times.

Stefan Kung, Daniel Oss (BMC)
Moreno Moser, Ramunas Navadauskas (Cannondale)
Gianluca Brambilla, Matteo Trentin (Etixx-QuickStep)

Busato is in the break - don't know if that is instead of, or as well as Amezquetta.

Expect some action for the Red points jersey with 3rd, 4th and 5th all in the break.

A lot of fresh snow on Monday has raised some concerns for tomorrow.
Suggestion of backup route via Sestriere (some 500m lower).

100km to go, gap at 11'.
Rai coverage not started yet, so just rehashing cyclingfans tracker.
I'll probably miss the start of Pramartino (and the cobbles in Pinerolo) but will be back later.

68 kms and the big break has almost 12 minutes.
Looks like we'll be getting action from the break and the bunch at the same time. How will RAI manage to fit in all those pointless shots of old buildings, water features, flowers and small children? Laughing

Have to say that Eurosport's coverage has been hopeless today.
Ad breaks literally every 5 minutes.
Just can't follow the race.

Moser tries to attack, covered by Etixx.
All back together again, including Brutt.

11 riders ahead now.
Both Etixx, both Tinkoff, both Cannondale ...
Oss and Knees struggling.

I think Moser and Brambilla are ready to go ...

Brambilla and Moser nearly at the top.
Arndt is chasing, rather forlornly.
Rides through a large black flag with skull and bones on it.

A thinned out peloton going up in order (except that Movistar always seem to be in front of Orica in the pecking order).

Lotto had Battaglin lead Kruijswijk and the peloton all the way up the climb.
No attempt to isolate him.

The bigger riders are only 14" behind now.
Of course there is another little ramp to come that will suit the climbers again.

edit - forgot that Trentin has the luxury of being a passenger

Rovny slides perfectly to an upright parked position on the barrier.
