A short, sharp stage from Austria back to Italy that finishes atop the fearsome Monte Zoncolan, known as one of the most difficult ascents in Europe. After a few early climbs where a break will surely go, the final ascent of Zoncolan is truly terrible. Only 10.1 kilometres long, Zoncolan gains 1203 metres for an average grade of 11.9% with the steepest pitches going straight up at over 20%. Simoni won here last time so don't bet against the tough Trentino mountain man to do it again atop Zoncolan.
