400 metres from the summit of the Stelvio in the 2005 edition of the Giro d’Italia. Snow would shut the road the day after, but with the help of snow ploughs the road was open to race this day. Passo dello Stelvio will feature in stage 20 of this year’s Giro. Photo was taken by Dan Moore and found over on Cycling Tips.
Basso will come good by then, attack on the mortirolo and go all the way to the top of the stelvio.
