The Giro heads east on a transitional stage through the Julian Alps, passing through Friuli, which was shaken by a major earthquake thirty years ago this month. Stage 18 starts in Austria for 80 km before moving back to Italy. First climb is Monte Croce Carnico, with the steep 7km Cuel di Forcia waiting with 55km to go to Gemona. An opportunistic attacker could get away alone on the last climb in Cologna to solo home for victory.
