Bassano del Grappa - Cima Grappa 26.8 km Timetrial
Nineteen kilometers of hard climbing in a timetrial that should prove decisive with more or less all the places in the top 10 still subject to change. For more on the Monte Grappa see our big preview.
Amy's wine tip for the day: Dama del Rovere Durello Spumante Brut
Durella or Durello is a white Italian wine grape variety originating from the Veneto wine region of northeast Italy. Today it is sparsely cultivated though some producers like to experiment with it since its high acid levels makes it suitable for sparkling wines.
This wine was very light yellow in the glass with many small bubbles. Crisp, with tastes of green apples and citrus. Just lovely.
Il Big del Giorno: Nairo Quintana
He can climb. He can timetrial. He's no longer suffering from whatever he was suffering from in the last TT. You do the math.
