Tirreno-Adriatico 2020: The Route

Primoz Roglic - Tirreno-Adriatico 2020: The RouteThe Tirreno-Adriatico takes place from Wednesday 11 March to Tuesday the 17th. A week with three chances for fast men, two hilly stages and a mountain leg with a summit finish at 1,362 metres ends with the traditional flat ITT in San Benedetto del Tronto.

The 2020 Tirreno-Adriatico eschews the team time trial on the first day of action in favour of a predominantly flat out and back race in Lido di Camaiore. The 1st stage is only 134 kilometres long.

The 2nd stage, 198 kilometres in length, serves a lumpy first half, while the last 60 kilometres are completely flat were it no for a small kicker inside the final 10 kilometres.

At 233 kilometres, the longest race is played out on the third day of action. The 3rd stage is a lumpy leg with an uphill finish in Sacrofano.

The Queen Stage takes in four intermediate climbs – three of which over 1,000 metres – before a final haul up of 13.1 kilometres at 7.3%. Two years ago Mikel Landa jumped to victory on this snow-banked finish in Sassotetto.

The 5th stage on the Tirreno-Adriatico has been called the ‘Tappa dei Muri’ because of the steep ascents. The route includes the Recanati ascent – with sections up to 19% – three times, while the climb to the line is featured five times.

Stage 6 is likely to see a sprint finish at the end of a race with undulating hills in the first half leading onto a flat second half. The race concludes with four laps of 16 kilometres with the last turn 1 kilometre from the line.

The Tirreno ends with the traditional fast and flat ITT along the Adriatic seafront.
