Giro 2020 Route stage 19: Morbegno - Asti

Giro d'Italia 2020Friday 29 May - The 19th stage is the longest stage on this year's Giro d'Italia. At 251 kilometres, the riders race from Morbegno to Asti without any substantial elevation gain.

Sprinters who survived the two mountain test with over 5,000 metres of climbing in the days before are given a last chance to shine in this transfer stage. The route runs along the western side of Lake Como and crosses the Po Valley for a fast finishers showdown in Asti. That is, if there are any sprinters left after all the suffering in the weeks before…

The last time that the Giro finished in Asti was in 2003. Unlike this year’s race, that was a very short stage of 117 kilometres. Alessandro Petacchi took the spoils. Although it was one out of six stage wins, it wasn’t his best year on the Giro. In 2004, the won eight stages.

After 1935, 1960, 1963 and 2003, Asti will see its fifth Giro stage finish in 2020.
