Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Giro Profile maps with Grade Percentage

Can anyone direct me to where I can find the stage profile maps that show the grade percentages? Steephill.tv maps do not show this information.
Cheers

You may want to search for 'Giro Garibaldi 2018' to download the roadbook. It should have all of the important climbs.

I would post a link, but I am still years away with my posting rate from being able to do that.

steephill.tv republishes elevation profiles provided by the official Giro organization. If you go to giroditalia.it/eng/, click on a stage, scroll down to where the overall elevation profile is shown and then click on a particular climb (e.g., Stage 6, Climb 1), if available, you get a focused profile graph that shows some of the gradients (Stage 6, Climb 1 is Mt. Etna).

If you know the name and location of the climb, try climbbybike.com or salite.ch, both of which have more detailed elevation and gradient breakdowns (by color-code as well) than the Giro supplies.
