technical info

A challenging medium mountain stage, crossing over to Slovenia and closing with a summit finish. Starting in Marano Lagunare, the route cuts across the lowlands all the way to the morainic hills around Fagagna and Majano. The stage course crosses Buja, reaches the Julian Prealps, runs past the Grotte di Villanova and tackles the Passo di Tanamea. The route enters Slovenia through the Uccea pass, leading directly to Kobarid (Caporetto, in Italian). Here, the peloton will take a first‑ever pass over Mt. Kolovrat, ascending at nearly 10% for 10 km (with gradients easing off owing to a short plateau halfway up the climb). A long false-flat down then leads back to Italy. Starting in Cividale del Friuli, the peloton will tackle the closing climb to the majestic Castelmonte sanctuary, which has been an iconic hallmark for nearly 1,000 years.
