The race of the Falling Leaves gets a makeover this year with a new route that finishes in Bergamo. The previous route was predominantly an east to west route that finished in Lecco, this year's route goes almost the complete opposite direction across Lombardy, starting in Como on the west and finishing in Bergamo after a loop in to the mountains north of the city. Bergamo has hosted the Tour of Lombardy before, finishing there between the years 1995 to 2003, in fact in 2003 the route was the same in title - Como to Bergamo, but it was a very different route entirely.
