Sprinters who survived the two mountain tests with over 5,000 metres of climbing in the days before are given a last chance to shine in this transfer (partly in busses) stage. The route crosses the Po Valley for a fast finishers showdown in Asti.
The last time that the Giro finished in Asti was in 2003. At 117 kilometres, it was a very short stage and Alessandro Petacchi took the spoils. Although it was one out of six stage wins, it wasn’t his best year at the Giro. In 2004, the won eight stages.
After 1935, 1960, 1963 and 2003, Asti will see its fifth Giro stage finish in 2020.
The second intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
