This remarkable route will over the space of a week link two world-famous cities, starting in Venice on the shores of the Adriatic Sea and coming to a close on the shore of Lake Geneva. 500 amateur cyclists from almost 40 different nationalities will face 7 timed stages totalling 880 kilometres, featuring 17 mountain passes and ascents, as well as 19,000 metres of elevation gain. The breathtaking landscapes of the Dolomites and Swiss Alps will challenge this highly diverse peleton with the programme featuring no fewer than 17 mountain passes and ascents and including certain legendary passes: Stelvio, Gavia, Pordoi, Giau, as well as the Furka Pass. Close to 50% of the mountain passes exceed an altitude of 2,000 metres on this 880km route, which includes two marathon stages (days 3 and 5), an individual time trial in the middle of the week, and two mountain-top finishes at Stelvio Pass and Crans-Montana.
