Control 3 will keep riders in the mountains for longer and out of the flat lands of the Italian Po Valley with a full traverse of the alpine range and a trip into the Dolomites.
The parcours for control 3 will begin at the top of the San Pellegrino pass (1918m). A beautiful but brutal climb with a long straight approach from the West riders will see exactly what is being asked of them and then a steep and twisting decent into the Biois Valley which will test their brakes and handling skills. From here they will find the start of the climb at Alleghe and climb via the 'old' road through Selva di Cadore to the top of the Passo di Giau (2236m) which sits under the dramatic Nuvolau Peak.
