24 July – 1.980 m | 87,3 km | h. 9.00
Crono Cavalese – Passo Lavazè | 10,4 km • 798 m
Departing from Bolzano in the direction of San Giacomo and Laives, we
travel along roads with little traffic as far as Ora, where the road climbs
with several hairpin bends along a steep porphyry wall and then opens out onto
a natural terrace. With a slight gradient we reach the Lugano Pass (border
between South Tyrol and Trentino) and then descend to Cavalese, the main
village of the Val di Fiemme Valley. Here begins the climb to Passo Lavazè, the
timed section of this stage. On reaching the finish, the road descends to
Novale/Rauth, where it turns right to tackle the demanding ascent to Obereggen,
the well-known ski and hiking resort at the foot of the Latemar mountain. After
this last effort, a long descent to Bolzano awaits us.
The first stop will be in Jenesien from 8.45 - 9.45 am at the Haflinger Museum.
