The beginning of the crowning stage takes off leisurely. Although the route ascends steadily from Biasca (301m above sea level), it’s enjoyable despite tired legs. The Lukmanier Pass is a real treat that deserves to be at the top of the racing bike Olympus. A 42-kilometer-long ascent with 1680 altitude can be hard on tired legs. The ascent continues through the Valle di Blenio to Olivone (902m above sea level) where you’ll turn into Valle Santa Maria. The ascent is constant but has quite a few crisp ramps. The actual pass is next to the Lai da Santa Maria mountain lake at 1972 altitude, the passport sign is located at the Ospizio del Lucomagno at 1914 altitude, where you’ll also get back to Graubünden. The descent leads through the Val Medel to Disentis (1,130m above sea level). A last short, crisp climb will bring you back into the village. From a distance, you’ll be able to see the imposing Benedictine monastery, which has had an impact on the town since the 13th century.
