GIRO D’ITALIA STAGE 19 COURSE PREVIEW

A mountain stage featuring a succession of climbs, with lengthy false‑flat drags in between. The route travels the lowland around river Ticino, reaching the foot of the Mottarone. The roadway narrows, and past Armeno the route heads for Gignese, reaching the shore of Lake Maggiore in Stresa. The stage then continues along the lake, passes Gravellona Toce and Omegna, and clears the Passo della Colma. Past Varallo, the route continues along the valley floor up to the foot of the closing climb in Scopello.

Finale

The final climb rises steadily at 9-10% for 6 miles, with pitches maxing out at 14%. The road is quite wide, with a number of hairpins. The home straight is on tarmac road.
