Spread the love

A short stage with a cross-border circuit between Italy and Slovenia of approx. 25 miles. The route begins flat, all the way to Sagrado, and then clears the Monte San Michele climb. Starting in Mossa, the circuit features three passes over the steep, 1.5 mile long Gornje Cerovo climb (each awarding KOM points), and a succession of tough climbs and descents. After the third lap, the route goes back to Italy through San Floriano del Collio, passes north of Gorizia and crosses the border again, passing through Nova Gorica.
