Giro d'Italia returns to the Kronplatz in South Tyrol
that time of the year again! The 2010
Giro d'Italia is heading for South Tyrol. The two
South Tyrolean stages, including the exciting mountain time
trial on Kronplatz, will be taking place on 25th and 26th
Year on year the degree of difficulty of Italy's
most famous cycling race is increased, with technically
demanding and stamina-sapping stages in the Alps. For this
reason, this year again the 13 kilometre long mountain time
trial will be taking place from St. Vigil on the 2,275
metre high Kronplatz in the Puster Valley on 25th May
2010. This stage is without doubt one of the major
attractions of this year's Giro, thanks to the maximum 24
per cent incline and because the last third of the course is
run on an unpaved road. The following day sees the start of
the 17th stage from Bruneck to Peio, which will also delight
a good many spectators and cycling fans.
So make sure
that you make a date in your diary for the 25th May! Two
unforgettable days are in store for confirmed and
prospective cycling fans alike.
