56th TOUR OF VALLE D'AOSTA / MONT BLANC 2019: THE STAGES



Six stages, 694 kilometers through Aosta Valley, France and Switzerland with a lot of uphills. The Società Ciclistica Valdostana has officially revealed the 56° Giro Ciclistico Internazionale della Valle d’Aosta that will take place from the 16th to the 21st of july 2019. All the expectations about the program of the Under 23 race have been satisfied with the presentation of challenging and engaging stages, as we always do at the Giro.

The race will start on Tuesday (16th july) with a 3 km individual time trial in Aosta, a fast prologue that will start and finish at the Arco d’Augusto, an historical site of the roman empire. The following day, Wednesday (17th july), the race will move to France with the start in Sainte-Foy-Tarentaise and the finish line in Saint-Gervais Mont-Blanc after the KOMs of Cormet de Roselend, Col des Saisies and Le Bettex. Thursday (18th) the riders will go back to Aosta Valley to race from Aymavilles up to Valsavarenche. This is a wiry stage with Doues and Verrogne’s passes (the last one will be ridden by the Giro d’Italia on the 25th of May) that will lead the riders to the long but “easy” climb of Pont di Valsavarenche, just after the unpaved road of Champlong (already covered during the Giro della Valle d’Aosta 2017). Friday (19th) there will be the longest stage of the tour, 179 kilometers from Antagnod to Champoluc, going two times by the Col du Joux, than the Col Champremier and the one of Emarèse. Saturday (20th) we will move to Switzerland with the stage Orsières - Champex. There will be some important uphills such as the Petite Forclaz (which will characterize the 2020 cycling world championship of Martigny), the Col de Lein, Col des Planches and the steep final climb to reach Chapex Lac. The gran finale, in line with our tradition, will be the Valtournenche - Cervinia on Sunday (21st), just under the beauty of the Matterhorn.

There will be four jerseys that will represent the leaders of the different categories of the 56° Giro Ciclistico Internazionale della Valle d’Aosta: the yellow jersey of the GC leader sponsored by Eaux Valdôtaines, the polka dot jersey for the King of the Mountain sponsored by CVA Trading, the red jersey for the Sprint Catch sponsored by Département Haute Savoie and the white jersey for the point classification with the symbol of Regione Valle d’Aosta.

«As always, we made an incredible work to organize the event, thanks to the support of the sponsors we managed to set six stages». -  stated Riccardo Moret president of the Società Ciclistica Valdostana. «The feeling with France and Switzerland has given excellent feedbacks and we are sure that the future of the Giro della Valle d’Aosta will be even more spectacular».

Good words also came from Daniela Isetti, Vice President of the Federazione Ciclistica Italiana: «The Giro Ciclistico della Valle d’Aosta has a technical niveau that is known in the whole world and, more than that, it is an important advertising for Aosta Valley. Those are the reasons why we have to safeguard this excellence for the future of our sport».
