Stage 5

Friday April 23 2021 - Valle del Chiese to Riva del Garda - 120.9 km Mountain

Despite the limited mileage, the route of the last stage could bring some surprising attacks. In fact, apart from the first 20 km, completely flat, the remaining distance of the stage is studded with climbs of different length and gradient. The first hill will be the panoramic ascent of Selle Giudicarie. After the climb, before reaching the final circuit of Riva del Garda, the riders be facing the ascents to Passo Duron (6.4 km to 7.9%) and Valico del Ballino. From there we will move towards the Tenno Lake to reach Riva’s finish line for the first time. At this point only 40 kilometers will be remaining in the 2021 Tour of the Alps: two laps of the final circuit including the Pranzo climb.

From the last time atop, only 12 km will be missing to the finish in Piazza Garibaldi, most of which to be covered on a fast descent.
