ROME – The most exciting stage of the Giro d'Italia is at risk due to the mad weather: the Gavia is submerged by snow, on May 28 it will be able to be freed to allow the passage of the riders who will then have to climb the Mortirolo?
"At the moment there is a 60% chance that the race will reach the top of the Gavia, as foreseen by the 16th stage, on the route that Lovere to Ponte di Legno, scheduled for Tuesday, May 28th (the Mortirolo, editor's note) . Obviously there is a Plan B, but surely I would exclude a double passage on the Mortirolo. Perhaps the stage would not be as fascinating as the one envisaged by the Gavia, but it would be equally harsh, "said Mauro Vegni, race director
The snow risk hangs over the 102th edition of the pink race, which risks being decapitated after the beating of the weather, with rain (on the run) and snow at high altitude even a little less than a month after the arrival of summer. Already in 2013 the Giro was decimated by the bad weather, which led to the cancellation of the stage with the Stelvio. (source: Ansa)
