Re: Womens 2018 General News and Discussion

I went to the girorosa website to check out the stage profiles - only the last two have any serious climbs?!?! And only one each - although the penultimate stage is the Zoncolan and a mt-top finish. The next stage has some cat 1 mt - could not read the profile image - quality sucked. The climb is towards the end, followed by a descent to the finish. I'm rather surprised the route did not have more variation and challenge. And, that they saved the two big stages for last.
Yesterday was a 14-km mountaintop finish, today will be a 15-km mountain time trial. Tomorrow it's a flat-to-rolling stage, then Zoncolan, and a circuitous final stage around Cividale with another cat 1 near the finish.

About the profiles and maps on the website:
If you open the graphic in a new tab, it'll open like this:
Simply remove everything behind the .jpg (in this case, ?w=620), and you'll get a very high-quality graphic: (2518x1719 pixels).
Why they put in the code to make it practically a thumbnail, nobody knows. :S
