Summer or winter doesn't matter. Imst is always able to call its visitors with a full program of events, concerts and festivals. To these attractions, a strong propensity to welcome all kinds of sportspeople must be added: from climbing and MTB enthusiasts, to those who want to have fun along the famous 3.5km long toboggan run.
With its 315 days of sunshine a year, Naturns is the ideal destination for a holiday dedicated to physical activity with the whole family. While the several playgrounds and the Funpark offer a great deal of fun to the childrens, adults can recharge their battery: the inhabited center of the Alta Val Venosta at the foot of Monte Sole is in fact the first tourist destination in the Südtirol certified Alpine Wellness.
A short initial circuit inside Imst introduces the first part of the stage, characterized by wide streets with soft slopes, though the wind could also represent a factor. The route becomes more difficult after 60km, even if the ascent to the first KOM of Reschen Pass/Passo Resia is not likely to make any major selection: wide, straight roads and tunnels. More challenging, even if not marked by the GPM goal, will be the 10 kilometers of roads climbing up the Val Venosta which will lead the peloton to the Frinig area. Back on the main road through a very technical descent followed by the climb of Tarsch/Tarres, one of the most dreaded. It is a top and demanding ascent that will end at 18 kilometers from the finish line in Naturns/Naturno, and this oculd eventually make it an ideal springboard for any solo or team action.
