Bressanone to Andalo
Tuesday, May 24
On paper, stage 16 is a transition stage, coming on the heels of two incredibly tough climbing days and before the final mountain push. After a slightly downward run to Bolzano, the stage serves up two significant climbs, taking in the Passo della Mendola and the Fai della Paganella, topping out just 10 kilometers from the finish. There is a small climb to Andola to finish the stage.
