Giro 2020 Route stage 16: Udine - San Daniele del Friuli

Giro d'Italia 2020Tuesday 20 October - The Giro serves another race at over 200 kilometres on the 16th stage. The riders travel from Udine to San Daniele del Friuli on a hilly route of 228 kilometres.

The first 100 kilometres are played out to the east of Udine. The riders crisscross the areas close to the Slovenian border. Firstly, they tackle the Madonnina del Domm after some 10 kilometres. The 12 kilometres climb at 6.6% is followed by the shorter Monte Spig before continuing to the Monteaperta, which is a stretched out ascent at shallow gradients.

By now, the route is halfway and soon the riders enter a tricky local circuit of 27 kilometres with three times the wall-like Monte di Ragogna.

The local round features two more uphill kicks. The first one appears 5 kilometres into each round. The 500 metres ascent to Castello di Susans goes up with a maximum incline of 14%, while the Monte di Ragogna is 2.8 kilometres long and the average gradients sits at 10.4%. The last time over this Wall is with 13 kilometres out.

On rolling roads the route continues to the finale uphill kicker in the ultimate kilometre. The first 500 metres are steep – 18% max! – before the last 500 metres continue false flat to the line.

Alessandro De Marchi is born in San Daniele del Friuli. The attacker won three stages on La Vuelta, but never succeeded in his home race. Is the 16th stage going to be his lucky day?
