For Stage 15, the Giro transitions east to the Dolomiti Mountains for a mythical, monumental Sunday.

Starting in the Trento, the capital of the autonomous region of Trentino-Alto Adige, Stage 15 rolls north through the vineyards of the Adige River Valley for 35 kilometres, then turns right at Ora to ascend to the Val di Fiemme, through Moena and up the first climb of the steep 11.8-kilometre ascent of Passo San Pellegrino, then down to the Val di Cadore, up and over the even steeper (9.4% avg.) 9.8-kilometres ascent of the 2236-metre Passo Giau and then down to the world-famous mountain resort city of Cortina d'Ampezzo with 22 kilometres still to race.

North from Cortina, Stage 15 first traverses the 8-kilometre ascent of Passo Tre Croci, then makes the final assault on the Tre Cime di Lavaredo from Misurina. Only 7.2 kilometres long, the super-steep ascent averages 7.6% with pitches up to 20%. Look for a battle of the climbers, with Simoni and Cunego going testa a testa for the prestigious win at le Tre Cime.
