Giro 2020 Route stage 13: Cervia - Monselice

Giro d'Italia 2020Friday 16 October - The 13th stage travels over the Po Plain to a finale in the Euganean Hills. The last 30 kilometres take in two short and sharp climbs before the last 11 kilometres are played out on the flat. At 192 kilometres, the route leads from Cervia to Monselice.

Cervia was the fist place in Italy to host the Ironman Triathlon and now the Giro d’Italia sets off from the town on the Adriatic Sea. The riders cross the Po Plain in the direction of the Alps. Not to enter the high mountains just yet. In contrast, the course of the first 155 kilometres are as flat as it gets.

The finale of the 13th stage is played out in the Euganean Hills. Rising up abruptly to heights of 300 to 600 metres northwest of Monselice, these volcanic phenomena form the picturesque backdrop for two climbs that could shake up the race. With 30 kilometres out the riders enter the Via Rocollo, a narrow and steep road of 4.1 kilometres with an average gradient of 8.3% that ramps up to 13.4% in the last kilometre.

Some 14 kilometres later the Giro moves through Calaone after a 2.1 kilometres climb at 9.8%. The route then descends onto the pan-flat last 12 kilometres.

Two intermediate sprints – at kilometre 118.5 and 155.2 – come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each, while time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.

Stage 13 of the Giro d’Italia starts at 11.40 and the race is expected to finish around 16.25 – both are local times (CEST).
