This is a completely new stage with two passes. For the first time, the route crosses the Penser Joch - on a little-used road from Sterzing into the Sarntal valley. The descent is comparatively smooth and less steep - in the midst of blooming mountain meadows, it is quite nice to ride.
At the gates of the provincial capital Bozen, the second ascent begins via Jenesien to the Schermoos - Sattel. Riders can look forward to great views over the bustling city - and later the tranquillity of further alpine meadows can be enjoyed. The descent also offers a beautiful view to the Etsch and the wide valley full of plantations. The winegrowing reigns the landscape on the wine road from Eppan up to Kaltern.
