06:20 US Eastern, 12:20 Europe -  Hello, welcome to coverage of stage 17 of the Giro.

This mountain stage is divided into two parts: it starts uphill, heading towards Passo del Tonale, and then continues mostly downhill for over 70 kilometres. After crossing the Adige river, the route ascends to Palù di Giovo (where the Moser family comes from), passing through the Valle dei Mocheni, reaching Pergine Valsugana and heading for the finish which, alone, is worth the 4-star difficulty rating of the entire stage. Past Pergine, the route takes in the Passo del Vetriolo (for the first time along a different side) and ascends to the Menador along the tunnels and tight hairpins of the former Kaiserjägerweg, which was carved out in the rock during wartime. After the Monte Rovere categorised climb, the slender peloton will be just a few kilometres away from the finish.
