Arco is the cuddle of GS Alto Garda, and is where Giro del Trentino was born. Its Casinò is the traditional permanance of Giro del Trentino Melinda's race start. After hosting the TTT finish in 2012, 2014 and 2015, Arco will stage its first start since 2013
A brand-new uphill finale for Giro del Trentino Melinda, that had never arrived in Anras. On the other hand, the Italian race is not new to Tirol. The last time #GdTM crossed the Austrian border was in 2013, when the 37th edition started with two half-stages in Lienz. Vincenzo Nibali earned the overall honors that year.
Giro del Trentino Melinda returns to Austria after three years to live its first uphill finish. It's an unseen one, in the small village of Anras, and it will come at the end of a 220 km effort, and a 4 km final drag at a 7% average gradient. The stage travels through the Provinces of Trento and Bolzano, making it a lumpy and weary route, rising uphill for most of the time from Trento on, even though the difference will certainly be made on the final sting.
