Giro 2023 Route stage 20: Tarvisio - Monte Lussari
Saturday 27 May - The 20th stage is a killer in an ITT's disguise. The route between Tarvisio and the top of Monte Lussari is 18.6 kilometres long. The first part is gently rolling, the second quite the opposite. It rises in 7.3 kilometres at 12.3% to the line.
An ITT for climbers on the penultimate day. Sounds familiar, right? The last time was in the 2020 Tour de France. Primoz Roglic was expected to seal his GC victory, but that didn’t happen. Tadej Pogacar pulled off the impossible and put almost 2 minutes into his compatriot, winning the overall with an advantage of 59 seconds. It just goes to show. An ITT for climbers is brutal, especially near the end of a Grand Tour.
The Giro copies the Tour de France’s recipe of 2020. The route between Tarvisio and Monte Lussari is 18.6 kilometres long. The run-in to the Monte Lussari is flat with some uphill undulations. And then it begins. Monte Lussari is a monster of 7.3 kilometres with an average gradient of 12.3%. The first 5 kilometres are even worse, as this section is averaging more than 15%.
The first intermediate time check is situated at the foot of the climb, after 10.8 kilometres, the other two at kilometre 15.3 and kilometre 17.8.
