Dolomites tough test

Passo dello Stelvio

Tomorrow's stage from Rovetta To Bormio (the Queen Stage) will truly begin the fight for pink. Tom Dumoulin will really have to answer the question whether he can hold on the maglia rosa until Milan.

Passo del Mortirolo, 962m of climbing in 12.6km, 7.6% avg, 16% maximum

Passo dello Stelvio, Cima Coppi, 1549m of climbing in 21.7km, 7.1% avg, 12% maximum

Umbrialpass, 1116m of climbing in 13.45km,  8.4% avg, 12% maximum

 The Stelvio will be climbed twice and finishes in Bormio.

"It's normal that my body gets better in the third week. The high altitude passes go well for me. Dumoulin is regular and can maintain it well, but I'm good on the high climbs when we are there at 2,000 meters."
- Nairo Quintana

Rest day...
