Stage 05
Thu, 13.06.24

from  Ambri  to  Cari


Most important facts

Distance: 148.6 km Elevation: 3’206 m+ Category: Mountain Stage Difficulty: 5/5
Commentary David Loosli

A pure Ticino stage is next on the agenda. After the start loop and another pass through Ambri, the race proceeds from the north side up to Carì for the first time, passing the finish line. But the stage is far from over. There is another loop towards Bellinzona before the big finish. The final challenging climb from the south side to Carì will test the cyclists’ mettle. If it was not clear before this point, we should now know who is in the running for overall victory.
