I would hate to ride up it. Also bring back the Kronplatz.

EDIT: I hope they get ride of the TTT and the final stage TT, give it a rest for a year or two IMO.

A Gavia, Stelvio, Kleinboden (a climb that starts from Gomagoi village) - stage would be utterly ridiculous, BTW.
Why not a stage with Stelvio - Mortirolo - Gavia then?

well zomegnan did say they will use a new 'unknown' climb in the giro 2012 and it would be a hard one.

I definitely want to see Gavia and Mortirolo in the same stage (did it some years ago I think?). Not sure how you would design the stage though. Trivigno was a tough climb before Mortirolo last year so it would be good if they could include that too.

They did it in 2006 and in 2008 (not sure about this one)
Difficult to include Trivigno too, unless they do a strange long loop
