After the rest day, the organizers have concocted a stage with five stars of difficulty (out of five), which will be 203 kilometers long, up to Monte Bondone. At 11:05 a.m., the 132 survivors will leave the small Lombard town of 3,800 inhabitants, at an altitude of 252m. Direction Trentino the summits! After 60 kilometers of completely flat warm-ups, along Lake Garda with around thirty tunnels, the peloton will begin the ascent of the Passo di Santa Barbara, classified in the 1st category (12.7km at 8.3% of average and a peak at 14%), then descend for three kilometers before climbing again, towards the Passo Bordala (3rd category, 4.5 km at 6.7% average and a peak at 12%). There will then still be 120 kilometers left.
