Giro 2020 Route stage 19: Abiategrasso - Asti

Giro d'Italia 2020Friday 23 October - The 19th stage would have been the longest stage on this year's Giro d'Italia. But the distance of 258 kilometres has been shortened to 124, while the finish in Asti remains unrevised.

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.
