Looking for the latest race results? - We got you covered right here!
Gran San Bernardo/Grand Bernard is a legit Monster with +1,850m of altitude gain from the Italian side, but far from the only great pass between Italy and Switzerland. In 2017 we finally saw the Umbrailpass, the Stelvio's little brother in the Giro, so I'm not gonna talk a lot about that one.Grand San Bernando > San Carlo > Petit San Bernardo leggooooo
Yeah, that's why I thought about the alternative one because it would create a killer combo but the gravel road needs work, and as you say it is very likely that they hold back on Pradell even in the alternative route.Theoretically the direct route is better, but the gravel road would need a lot of work for the race to pass, and regardless of that, action on Pradell would still be unlikely given that this is only the third stage. In any case, Fumanya plus the main road to Rassos de Peguera alone would make a hard first mountain stage.
