Queens Stage 5 star rating covering 202km
Once again we are pleased to announce that we will be attending the 103rd edition of the Giro d’italia in 2020. 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. This quality 4 star hotel has 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 the Bormio nows the time to find out it’s the home of the iconic Stelvio Pass (2758m). The area is not just about the Stelvio though, the following are within a stones throw, Gavia, Concano, Foscango, Bormio 2000, Mortirolo, Umbrail and the pre mentioned Stelvio. All these climbs are challenging and on the odd occasion a killer (Mortirolo).
It’s strong news that “The boy from the valleys” Mr G Thomas (Inios), Vicenzo Nibali(Trek) and defending champion Carapaz (Now Inios) will be doing battle , so come and cheer on your favourites and experience the Giro as well as conquering the surrounding mountain passes.
This stage has a 5 star rating and is the queens stage,covering 202km and passing over the Stelvio from the harder side into Bormio. Our hotel is just 8km from the base of the final climb giving us the option to make our way up the climb to get the best viewing position before the pros cross the gravel road and reach the finish line at Cancano lake. The stage we will be attending is on the 28th May – stage 18 , giving us time to discover the area before and after the Giro stage.
