The last 130 kilometers through the Dolomites will not count flat meters, with five climbs that will follow each other without respite. The group will go to the rhythm the passes of Campolongo (4 kilometers at 7%), Valparola (13.3 kilometers at 5.9%), the famous Giau (9.9 km at 9.3%) and Tre Croci (7.9 km at 7, 2%), before ending with the legendary Trois Cimes de Lavaredo.
