We are planning a trip to Italy in May, part of which will be to see some of the Giro d'Italia bike race. Our current thoughts are to see the climb of the Passo dello Stelvio near Bormio and the finish and podiums in Milan. Anyone have any advice, especially on the logistics of viewing a mountain stage? Typically, the road where the cyclists are going to race is closed to all traffic in the morning, i. Spectators can access it only on foot or bike. You can usually pick whatever spot you like along the road. I cannot help you with respect to the Milan finish, because I never attended one.
Read that again. Gather yourself. The route first climbs gradually to Edolo, then up the feared Mortirolo from Monno, a route used only once before in Next, the peloton will pass over the finish line in Bormio, before it begins the long climb of the infamous Passo dello Stelvio the Cima Coppi, or highest point of the race. Then, the race will plunge down the eastern side of the Stelvio to the village of Prato allo Stelvio, and cross into Switzerland. Finally, the race climbs, for the first time, the Umbrail Pass leading back to Italy, cresting just three kilometers from the Stelvio summit, before running down to Bormio and the finish.
The race was won by Tom Dumoulin , who became the first Dutch male winner of the Giro. Details about the first three stages of the race were unveiled at a press conference on 14 September The remainder of the route was unveiled by race director Mauro Vegni on 25 October There were 21 stages in the race, covering a total distance of 3, Ulrich ; and stage 19, to Piancavallo. The Cima Coppi the race's highest elevation was the Stelvio Pass , summited during stage
On the upper reaches of the Swiss side of the Stelvio, a little shy of metres above sea level, Vincenzo Nibali 's Giro d'Italia finally began. For more than two weeks, the Bahrain-Merida leader was always up there, yet never quite where he needed to be. A victory in Bormio on Tuesday's stage 16 has changed all of that. Four days from the end of the Giro, Nibali is suddenly just off Tom Dumoulin's overall lead, and only 41 behind the second-placed Nairo Quintana Movistar. He overturned a heftier deficit in less time a year ago, and though the opposition is loftier this time around, at least by reputation, Nibali's general condition and morale through the opening acts of this Giro have been notably higher. We've raced well and we're happy so far," Nibali said during an appearance on RAI's Processo alla Tappa programme after the finish of stage 17 in Canazei.

The race would be decided by a points system rather than time elapsed.
