Stage 15, Galibier Stage, Official Update

Following the order by the Valloire Prefecture, and taking note that – after 24 hours, following the assessment of the weather conditions – the Prefecture itself has revised its position, by authorizing the original course of stage 15, the Direction of the Giro d'Italia confirms the original itinerary except for the last 4.250 kms.

The finish will therefore be set in Les Granges du Galibier - Monumento Pantani (Pantani Monument).

The start, initially scheduled for 12:30 pm, is rescheduled to 1:00 pm.

Considering the ever-changing weather conditions, should the weather deteriorate during the night, the Direction of the Giro reserves the right to make further modifications in order to protect the riders’ and caravan’s safety.
