You could argue the route of the 13th stage is the prelude to a ‘summit finish’. After all, the finish line in Tortona is the highest point of the parcours, located at an ‘elevation’ of 115 metres above sea level.
By the way, departure place Reggio Emilia lies lowest – at 5 metres.
Just like the 14th stage, stage 13 in the Giro d’Italia pays hommage to Fausto Coppi. In 1960 Il Campionissimo passed away in today’s arrival place, while he was born in 1919 in tomorrow’s departure place Castellania. He died young after he had caught malaria in Burkina Faso.
Fausto Coppi was the champion of champions after winning the Giro d’Italia five times and the Tour de France two times. Furthermore, he took the Tour of Lombardy five times and Milan–San Remo three times. Other notable results include winning Paris–Roubaix and La Flèche Wallonne. He took the rainbow jersey back to Tortona after winning the road race at the World Championship in 1953.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the last intermediate sprint (at kilometre 126.6) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
