Stage 16

Tuesday May 28 2019 - Lovere to Ponte Di Lego - 226 km

After the final rest day, the Giro will ride from Lovere to Ponte di Legno. The Queen stage is 226 kilometers with a leg sapping 5,700m of climbing.

It runs over the Presolana, the Croce di Salven, before climbing the legendary Gavia Pass (Cima Coppi), and the fiercesome Mortirolo (Montagna Pantani) from the hardest side of Mazzo di Valtellina.

Don't miss this stage, the beautiful views on the gavia, the dangerous descent and then then the hardest climb in professional cycling some say, the dreaded and renlentless killer climb of the Mortirolo.

It's an uphill run into Pointe de Legno for anyone who's left in contention.
