The 34th edition of the Giro del Trentino (April 20 to 23, 2010) will guarantee another exciting sport event. Race organisers announced the details of the second stage, Giro del Trentino Queen Stage, that will lead the peloton to the 1st categorized mountain top finish up to San Martino di Castrozza (1466m).
The deal has been sealed between San Martino di Castrozza touristic head office and "Gruppo Sportivo Alto Garda".
The 2010 Giro del Trentino opens with an individual time trial on April 20 along Garda Lake (Trentino's side). Stage 2 will cross Passo del Brocon (1615 metres) and Passo Gobera (Category Two, 998 metres) before the 13,7km long final ascent up to San Martino di Castrozza (marked out by a maximum gradient of 10 per cent).
The third stage starts at Fiera di Primiero and will suit to the sprinters as the course is pretty flat and smooth.
