Giro del Trentino to conclude with challenging stage from Malè and Cles
The 40th Giro del Trentino Melinda will end with stage 4 on April 22 from Malè and Cles (160.9km). The stage will run between Val di Sole and Val di Non. The stage was used as last year’s finale that saw Paolo Tiralongo win the day and Richie Porte win the overall title.
“The final stage is the high-quality brand over this established international event, popular among riders and fans,” said Michele Odorizzi, President of Consortium Melinda. “The organizers have shown impressive know-how and experience, and look set to guarantee a shining future to the event, based on passion, entrepreneurial spirit and bond with our territory.”
During the final stage, riders will race over a demanding course, with the tough ascent of Forcella di Brez, which is seven kilometres and rises up to 1,395 metres, and has a gradient of 10 per cent. The race will also include climbs over Fondo and Marcena di Rumo.
The Giro del Trentino will begin on April 19 with a 12.1km prologue. It will continue with stage 1 on April 20 with a 220km race from Arco to Anras. Stage 2, on April 21 will be a 204.6km race from Sillian to Mezzolombardo.
