Stage 12

Thursday May 23 2019 - Cuneo to Pinerolo - 146 km
 

Stage 12 is where the GC battle will start to get interesting. This short yet demanding stage passes over steep Via dei Principi di Acaja (with peaks topping out at 20%) twice.

It then tackles the first category climb of the Montoso. After reaching Pinerolo, the route takes a first pass over the wall, tackles the Montoso climb and goes back to Pinerolo to clear the wall for the second time, 3 kms before the finish.
