Giro 2023 Route stage 14: Sierre - Cassano Magnago

Giro d'Italia 2023Saturday 20 May - The riders return to Italy in the 14th stage of the Giro. They clip into their pedals in Sierre, Switzerland, to finish in Cassano Magnago after 194 kilometres of racing with 1,600 metres of climbing. Virtual all vertical action takes place on the Simplon Pass, which is crested at kilometre 56.

It would have been a typical stage for the sprinters, if not for that huge climb in the first part. The Simplon Pass does not fit that profile at all. The 20.2 kilometres at 6.5% seems totally out of place. Some minor hurdles here and there, but the route is a sprinter’s dream. Were it not for the obstacle that looms large after 36 kilometres: the Simplon Pass.

After descending the pass the riders have still 100 kilometres on the flat ahead of them. There’s one small climb remaining in Quinzano San Pietro – 1 kilometre at 6.1%, with 16 kilometres left – and a false flat inside the last 10 kilometres, but that’s it. So when the sprinters make it back to the peloton after the Simplon Pass nothing stands in the way of a fast finishers showdown in Cassano Magnago.

The second intermediate sprint comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
