    The route of stage 17 The


    coming days there will be stages in both the Giro and the Vuelta, so it is sometimes difficult for cycling enthusiasts to choose.

    The Giro starts today at 10.20 in Bassano del Grappa.

    203 kilometers later, the tough stage ends in Madonna di Campiglio.

    Along the way, the riders will encounter three mountains, while the finish is also on a mountain.
