A short initial circuit inside Imst introduces the first climb of the day that leads to the 1559 meters of the Piller Sattel. After a quick descent, the road begins to rise again towards the GPM of Reschen Pass/Passo Resia, an ascent characterized by wide, straight roads and tunnels. More challenging, even if not marked by the GPM goal, will be the 10 kilometers of roads climbing up the Val Venosta which will lead the peloton to the Frinig area. Back on the main road through a very technical descent followed by the climb of Tarsch/Tarres, one of the most dreaded. It is a top and demanding ascent that will end at 18 kilometers from the finish line in Naturns/Naturno, and this could eventually make it an ideal springboard for any solo or team action.
