Day 6, was the big finale, and the longest stretch of the tour. In total 200km were traveled, however do to heavy traffic conditions leaving the mountains the first 50km were driven in cars. Once clear the traffic jams the team rode the remaining 150km to Venice by way of Cartina d’Ampezzo to the salty canals of old Venice.
The stretch of the tour was mostly spent going downhill, watching the scenery change from the isolation of the mountains, to roaring industrial areas. As they reached their final destination Hotel La Rondine there was the bittersweet feeling of having reached their goal, but having to also say goodbye.
