Preview: 2016 Giro d’Italia — Stage 18

Muggiò to Pinerolo

Thursday, May 26

234 kilometers


After nearly 170 kilometers across the Po River plain, this marathon stage hits a series of shorter climbs, finally topping out on Pramartino (averaging 10 percent gradient), before an 18-kilometer run into Pinerolo, which hosts a finish for the sixth time in Giro history. (The first was in 1949, when Fausto Coppi won.)
