Giro 2020 Route stage 2: Budapest - Györ

Giro d'Italia 2020Sunday 10 May - The 2nd stage of the Giro d'Italia travels from Budapest to Györ. The second Hungarian leg of 2020's first Grand Tour features some moderate uphill, but a bunch sprint seems to be on the cards. The route amounts to 193 kilometres.

The hardest climb of the day comes early. At kilometre 20 the riders crest the Svábvár in the Carpathian Mountains, which is an ascent of roughly 3 kilometer at 7%, mainly of interest for riders who are eyeing the first KOM jersey. Another picturesque climb leads around the halfway point to Gorba-tető, but – again – this is nothing special is terms of gradients. The last uphill leads to the Abbey of Pannonhalma, which is short and sharp climb before the last 25 kilometres are perfect to arrange the first Grand Tour bunch of 2020 sprint in Györ.

In last year’s Giro, Pascal Ackermann and Caleb Ewan both won two sprint stages, while Arnaud Démare came out on top on one occasion.
