Tour of the Alps
5 stages, 719 km and 13.750 of elevation gain are the show of the Tour of The Alps, the internationsl bike race UCI Pro Series.
Plenty of climbs, challenging routes with significant elevation gain, it will be another full-gas edition from the start in Cles (Trentino) to the grand finale in Lienz (Tirol), with sceneries and territories of rare beauty in the background.
The first stage, the longest of all the Tour, will take place on monday 18th April and the arrival will be at Fiera di Primiero in Primiero San Martino di Castrozza after 159 km.
Passo Brocon and Passo Gobbera climbs will be the main hurdles of the stage before a nervous finale, characterized by the steep Via Molaren uphill drag, the final springboard for those targeting the first leader’s jersey.
On Tuesday, April 19th, the riders will face an uphill start in stage 2, of 153 Km from Fiera di Primiero in Primiero San Martino di Castrozza to Lana, in South Tyrol.
Right after the start, the highest peak of the 2022 Tour of the Alps, Passo Rolle, awaits the riders. This climb will be followed by the ascents of Mendelpass/Passo della Mendola and Gampenpass/Passo delle Palade before a fast finale to Lana.
