Stage 9

Sunday May 14 2017 - Montenero di Bisaccia to Blockhaus - 139km Mountain Finish

Slightly undulating stage but the finale climbs up the steep Blockhaus ascent (Passo della Maielletta or “Mamma Rosa”) on the Roccamorice side. It is the toughest side of the well-known climb with its middle section measuring over 7 km in length at gradients of 9-10%. The finish is the same as in 2009 at 1,675 m of altitude.
