Two Mountain Stages of the Giro followed by 3 great days climbing , Stelvio , Gavia , Concano etc
We are pleased to announce that we will once again be attending the Giro d’italia (2022 edition),the Giro captures the imagination from the first to the last day and doesn’t disappoint.
We will be based in Bormio at our regular hotel that being the Palace Hotel, a quality 4 star hotel, a secure bike room, wellness centre and a swimming pool for you to relax after a day in the saddle. The service, rooms and food is amazing, to the extent that I have stayed over 50 nights and enjoyed every one of them.
If you are not aware of our location Bormio nows the time, it’s the home of the iconic Stelvio Pass (2758m). The area is not just about the Stelvio, the following are within a stones throw, Gavia, Concano, Foscango, Bormio 2000, Mortirolo, Umbrail. All these climbs are challenging and on the odd occasion a killer (Mortirolo).
Our location enables us to watch two mountain stages of the Giro, those being stage 16 and 17. Stage 16 reaches the half way by climbing the famous Mortirolo , circa 14km and not dropping below 10% a brute of a climb. The day after we can travel down the valley road and watch the early part of stage 17 as it passes over the Passo Tonale (1832m) before a long day in the saddle for the Pros ,to the finish at Lavarone.
The experience we have after visiting the area twice a year for 10 years is valuable to our customers so they know they will be in good hands with some great routes to ride as well as watching the Giro.

This is a classic stage of Valtellina area with a sequence of climbs some of which have been rediscovered after many years. Departure from Salò to go inside the Sabbia valley and after Bagolino climb the Goletto di Cadino (last passage in 1998 on the occasion of Pantani’s victorious ride to Montecampione).
Going up the Val Camonica you climb the Mortirolo (as in 2017) to go down to Grosio and travel the Sforzato wine roads to which the stage is dedicated, climbing Teglio (the place that gives its name to the valley) and then finally reaching Aprica through the Valico of Santa Cristina on which the last passage was in 1999.
Mountain stage divided into two parts. Departure upwards towards Passo del Tonale followed by a stretch of over 70 km always substantially downhill. After crossing the Adige, you climb the climb to Palù di Giovo (Moser fiefdom), passing through the Mocheni Valley to reach Pergine Valsugana and the final which alone deserves all the difficulty stars of the stage. After Pergine you climb the Passo del Vetriolo from an unprecedented slope and the ascent of the Menador with its narrow hairpin bends and the typical tunnels of the roads carved into the rock for war reasons (it was called Kaiserjägerweg). At the top of the Monte Rovere GPM, a very few undulating kilometers will bring a very small group to the finish.
