Tour de l'Avenir will host first ever stage finish on Colle delle Finestre this year

Italy will host the last two stages of the 60th edition of Tour de l'Avenir. The region of Piemonte will be already hosting the Grande Départ of Tour de France this year. However the absolute protagonist of the U23 race's jubilee, will undoubtedly be the climb of Colle delle Finestre (18 km a 8%).

The official presentation of this year's Tour de l'Avenir route highlighted that it will be an edition suitable for climbers, with many climbs and mountain stages. The province of Turin will be particularly interested in the penultimate stage on 23 August, starting from Les Karellis and arriving in Condove. The last two stages of the women's Tour de l'Avenir will also take place on the roads of Piemonte, which will closely follow the route of the men's race.

The Colle delle Finestre climb has hosted the Giro d'Italia four times in recent years, the last time in 2018 when it was the scene of Chris Froome's memorable attack, but it has never been the arrival site of a professional race. This year's Tour de l'Avenir will therefore be a the climb's debut in the role and many are already wondering who the young talent will be to raise their arms to the sky at the finish line of that stage.

Last year's edition of the Under23 stage race was won by the Mexican Isaac Del Toro ahead of our Giulio Pellizzari, while in the past the triumphs had been names that now resonate everywhere such as those of Tadej Pogacar (2018), Egan Bernal (2017 ) and Nairo Quintana (2010).
