Pila and Aosta are the same I think. The day after could start in Aosta and finish in Alba.So we could expect up to as much as six mountain stages?
Probably a bit too much to expect it but Verbania could also be at least a medium mountain stage if it turns out to be a road race and not an ITT.
What about the Appennines? Any rumors there?
According to Eshnar Gualdo Tadino or Foligno has a stage finish which could be an Appennines mountain stage.
