Giro 2024 Route stage 20: Alpago – Bassano del Grappa

Giro d'Italia 2024Saturday 25 May - The penultimate stage of the Giro d'Italia is a mountanous test of 184 kilometres with start in Alpago and finish in Bassano del Grappa. The race comes down to a double ascent up the brutal Monte Grappa and a long descent to the line.

The route is very straightforward. A few minor hurdles pep up the predominantly first part of the race. Then, after 80 kilometres of action, the Monte Grappa makes its entrance. The ascent amounts to 18 kilometres, while the average gradient sits at 8.1%. The downhill is spiced up by a wall, Il Pianaro, a ramp of 1.5 kilometres at 9%.

It’s been ten years since the last inclusion of Monte Grappa. Back then, the climb was the pinnacle of an individual time trial, which was won by Nairo Quintana, who went on to win the GC that year. Two years ago it was Natnael Tesfatsion who outsprinted Filippo Zana en Vadim Pronskiy at the summit in the Queen Stage of the Adriatica Ionica Race. That ascent was different though, as the riders came from Pedavena, on the north side, while the riders tackle Mont Grappa this time from Semonzo, the south side, just as they did in 2014.

After tackling the second ascent of Monte Grappa, they have roughly 30 kilometres left to ride. This is – except fo Il Pianaro – a descent, before the roads even out in the final 5 kilometres.

The second and third intermediate sprint come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the first three riders on the line gain 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
