Giro 2020 Favourites stage 19: Last chance for fast finishers
The 19th stage of the Giro d'Italia is very long. But that's the only tricky aspect of the route. As long as the sprinter's teams don't fall asleep the race should see a fast finishers showdown.
Uphills on the road from Morbegno to Asti are absent, so a sprint finish is the most likely outcome. All the more since this is the last chance for the sprinters. The last two days of the Giro are played out on routes that are tailored for climbers and pure time trialists.
Obviously, the big question is how many sprinters will still be participating in the Giro by the time the 19th stage is held.
The winner in Asti succeeds Alessandro Petacchi. The Italian won the last Giro d’Italia with a finish in the Piedmontese town seventeen years ago.
Winning all sprints until now, Démare is the fastest finishers in the Giro.
