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

Giro d'Italia 2020The 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 fairly 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 climb is 2.8 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 10.4%, while the second 500 metres go up at 13.2%. The last time over the Monte di Ragogna is with 13 kilometres out.

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?
