Alpe di Siusi / Seiser Alm
The largest mountain plateau in Europe is where riders in this year’s Giro d’Italia will end up on the mountain time trial stage this week. Having driven the route from Kastelruth a couple years ago while staying at the Kamaunhof further down the slopes, I can imagine the challenge these cyclists face heading up 700+ meters in elevation over a very short distance. The Dolomites are incredible for both hiking and cycling, and the Südtirol has beauty in abundance. While it may be hard to keep your eyes on the road with this stunning mountain scenery, it should be another fine stage in this classic race.
