Stage 15 - Sunday, May 25: Arabba - Passo Fedaia/Marmolada (Dolomites Stars), 153km

In year's Corsa Rosa there are three mountaintop road stage finishes to test the legs of the non-climbers and allow the lightweight men to shine. Yesterday's stage finish of Alpe di Pampeago (Val di Fiemme), stage 14, and two days before the race ends, stage 19, to Monte Pora; however stage 15's run in Trento will be a butchers' fest. It takes in six serious climbs, including the 11.8-kilometre Passo di San Pellegrino, the 9.8-kilometre Passo Giau and the finale, 13.35 kilometres up the Passo Fedaia.

Though the Giro d'Italia has never finished on the Passo Fedaia, it has been used in some memorable stage battles. In 2002, Julio Pérez attacked on the climb to get mountain points and kept going to win the stage, and in 2006, Juan Manuel Gárate kept going after the climb with his escape companions to eventually win the stage.
