Stage 17 will start in Commezzadura, with a slight descent through the Val di Sole, before climbing until the Mendola Pass.
After the descent towards Bolzano the route climbs up to the Eisack Valley and, after Bressanone, the Puster Valley.
Riders will face the Naz and Terento climbs before the long final ascent towards Anterselva’s Biathlon Stadium, which will host the winter sports World Championships in 2020.
Another tough constantly upstage stage to sap the legs of the GC contenders with a battle to the finish line.
Another hot stage to watch as the race heats up.
