Start - Žalec

Four mountain finishes sound like a lot, but none of them is big enough to create really big gaps. However the last one that will start 26 kilometers before the finish in Idrija could shake things up. Climb to Dole is five kilometers long and has average incline of nine percent. But the finish is in the valley in Idrija 20 kilometers later, so a lot of things can change in the last part.

We saw proof of that yesterday thanks to Luka Mezgec, but he and his team Mitchelton-Scott will today work for their climber Esteban Chaves.
