The pink race will be in the valley during three days, passing by during the stage of May 24th, then for a day of rest on May 25th and departing from Canazei on May 26th
Val di Fassa is one of the protagonists of the Giro d’Italia 2021. There’s great satisfaction in the Ladin valley for the assignment, after the inspections done in January, of the departure of the 17th stage in Canazei on May 26th, heading to Sega di Ala. But there’s more: on May 24th, during the stage that goes from Sacile to Cortina, the athletes will go up to Passo Fedaia and then down to Penia and Canazei heading towards the Passo Porbdoi. After reaching Cortina, the teams will move back to Canazei for a break day on May 25th. This means that the appreciated Pink Race will be in the valley for three days in a row. An important return to Canazei, where a stage of the race set the arrival on May 24th, in 2017, with departure from Moena on the following day.
But the streets and the passes of this valley – and in particular the Pordoi Pass which hosts a monument dedicated to Fausto Coppi and a bike of Gilberto Simoni, have given a hand to the success of the Giro and of the best athletes in the world in several occasions. Once again, so, the pink shirt and the athletes will be in Val di Fassa as well as in other locations of the province. In addition to the stage of May 26th that will go from Canazei to Sega di Ala – passing by Fassa, Fiemme, Cembra, Trento, Rovereto and the Altopiano di Brentonico before the last ascent to the Sega di Ala –, on May 27th the race will go from Rovereto to Stradella, for the longest stage of the edition, along 228 km.
