Stage 16 - Monday, May 26: San Vigilio di Marebbe - Plan de Corones (Individual Time Trial), 12.85km

The legs will be left wobbly and weak from the previous two days in the mountains for the individual test to the never before used Plan de Corones. The climb (1080 metres of climbing) was cut short at the Passo di Furcia due to snow the last time the organisers tried to included it in 2006.

This year race organiser RCS Sport has planned a 12.85-kilometre mountain time trial on the mountain in northeast Italy, which should help see the stage run as programmed. The stage will start in San Vigilio di Marebbe and run 12.6 kilometres before hitting the finale over the sterrato ('gravel road'), which includes sections touching 24 percent gradient.
