The Giro mountains begin with the first stage in the Dolomiti to Zoldo Alto. Starting in Marostica's Piazza dei Scacchi, the climbing chess game begins with two small ascents of the Salita della Rosina and the Scale di Primolano, then a long, gradual ascent up to the first GPM at Passo di Cereda (1369m) then another at Forcelle Aurine after 105.km. After a descent to Agordo, it's the steep 13km ascent to Passo Duran (1601m.), a 8km descent and then the final 12km ascent to the finish at the ski resort of Dolomiti Stars in Zoldo Alto. Look for Damiano Cunego to try and put his stamp on the Giro in this first mountain stage.
