Brixen – St. Vigil
Yeah, you got us – it's a copy/paste thing from 2013. Although Race Director Marc Schneider has been hitting the maps, did speak to a lot of locals as well as local authorities, he had to admit that we cannot do this stage any better than this.
Those trails on Plose with views into the Dolomites are a league by themselves although they have to be earned the hard way by covering a 1,800 metres ascent starting right outside of Brixen. Same for the other single track riders will most certainly fall in love with: it's located at the end of the stage, from Munt da Rina to Wellschellen, and the field has to work hard to reach it.
Thereafter, it's an easy task to reach St. Vigil, situated right in the heart of the Dolomites, an Unesco World Heritage, although this exhausting stage will end with a short but nasty closing climb to the finish line.
