Giro 2023 Route stage 20: Tarvisio - Monte Lussari

Giro d'Italia 2023Saturday 27 May - The 20th stage is a killer in the an ITTs disguise. The route between Tarvisio and the top of Monte Lussari is 18.6 kilometres long. The first part is gently rolling, the second 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 2023 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 4.7 kilometres are even worse, as this section is averaging 15%.

The only intermediate time check is situade at the foot of the climb, after 11.3 kilometres.
