Colle delle Finestre

Fabio Aru (ASTANA PRO TEAM) won Saturday's Stage 20 of the 2015 Giro d'Italia between Saint-Vincent and Sestriere (199km), a stage which included the Colle de Finestre. Alberto Contador (TINKOFF SAXO) was dropped on the Finestre but defended his Maglia Rosa. It was epic watching!

The Finestre, with its 8km of dirt road, was first used in the Giro in 2005.

A must read, in words and images,  of Saturday's stage is Jered and Ashley Gruber's "Race Day: Finestre".
