The event will include two road stages and one time trial stage. Of course the Passo dello Stelvio will feature in each of the stages. More details of each stage are expected to be announced in early 2019.

Based in the cycling heaven of Bormio, burried in the Italian Alps not far from the Swiss border, you will face the majestic challenge of Passo dello Stelvio, a mountain steeped in cycling history.
The impressive and daunting 48 hairpins on Prato allo Stelvio side is every cyclists must climb mountain. Knowing that the mountain has been battleground to many a Giro d’Italia title makes it even more special.
While the Haute Route race organisers have yet to publish the routes for each of the three stages it is very likely that they will make good use of each accent. It is likely that the final stage will be a time trial up the mountain from Bormio and that each other stage will feature the climb during the stage.
The Haute Route Stelvio will feature three stages:
Stage 1: Fri 20th September 2019
Stage 2: Saturday 21st September 2019
Stage 3: Sunday 22nd September 2019 (Time Trial)
In three days of racing riders will cover just over 270 kilometres with 7500m of climbing up one of the fiercest mountains on offer in Europe (based off of 2018 route). As always La Fuga will be there every step of the way to support you on and off the bike.
Unlike previous Haute Route events that have a different race village each day, this 3-day edition is be based in Bormio at the base of of the Passo dello Stelvio, meaning less unpacking an repacking and more time to recover between race stages.
