Tour of the Alps

The great cycling event of the "Euregio" area

The new Tour of the Alps, the new cycling events that follows the steps of the Giro del Trentino, has yet to live its very first pedal stroke, but looks in great shape already. It is going to be an ambitious and innovative event, that promises to put on an enticing show from April 24th to April 25th, 2019.

The synergy between Trentino, the original homeland of the event, Südtirol and Tirol opened the way to an international, cross-border project that carries a 40-year legacy (the forty editions of the Giro del Trentino), and expects to live many more exciting pages under the aegis of the Euregio

 

THE TOUR OF THE ALPS IN TRENTINO

On Wednesday April 24th, the Tour of the Alps will reach Trentino during stage 3, starting from Salorno/Salurn (Südtirol) and ending in Baselga di Piné, in a short (106,3 km) and intense stage with no breathers. The race will pass by Palù di Giovo, in a hommage to famous locals Francesco Moser and Gilberto Simoni, and cross the Cembra valley before ending on the pleasant lake banks in Baselga di Piné. Located a few kilometers away from Trento, Baselga is on the border between Valsugana and Val di Cembra, and offers medium-mountain landscapes enriched by woods, lakes and holy places.

On Italy’s liberation day, Thursday April 25th, the Tour of the Alps will live an entire day in Trentino, starting from Baselga di Piné and ending in Cles, the long-time home of Trofeo Melinda. The Val di Non will be the center of a challenging finale, characterized by the ascents to Forcella di Brez and Predaia Pass, and the tough Pontara uphill drag in the very last chilometers. The main town of the Val di Non is back to hosting a Tour of the Alps finish two years after Matteo Montaguti’s success in 2017. Cles has contributed significantly to Italian cycling, as it’s also the birth place of Maurizio Fondriest and Letizia Paternoster. Surrounded by the beauty of the Brenta Dolomites, Cles is the perfect starting point for hiking and MTB excursions all over the Val di Non, on the discovery of new and thrilling views.
