We start this year’s stage in Mötz, 20 miles west of Innsbruck, Austria.
On the first day we will master our second mountain pass: After the Fern Pass last year, the Reschen Pass is now our goal. On the second day it goes downhill via Merano to Bolzano. Assumed we have good weather, this probably will be the most beautiful leg this year – the view into the valley to Merano is amazing ! On the third day we ride through the Adige Valley to the south and turn at Trento to the east. The next day we will leave the Alps behind us, via the Sugana Valley with only a little difference in altitude. After 5 days Trieste on the Italian / Slovenian border will be in sight.
