Problem is that Finestre has been used only 2 years ago, the streets of Fauniera and Sampeyre are probably in a very bad condition, I think Cervinia is the only place in Aosta which still wants to host Giro stages, since the last Aosta stage which didn't finish there is already a very long time ago, and to make the other climbs in the west interesting you have to go to France in most cases. It's really a pity, since I like the western Italian Alps much more.Brullnux said:Funny how there are basically no western alps next year. Apart from Oropa. No Fauniera or Finestre, or Aosta.
Well, if they don't go over the Gavia and the Mortirolo is in the stage which finishes on the Stelvio, they will probably make a stage like in 2012. In that stage there was only some false flat between the Mortirolo and the Stelvio while the Mortirolo would be more far away from the finish if they would also go over the Gavia. Or didn't I understand the rumors correctlyEshnar said:
