Tirreno-Adriatico 2020: The Route

Primoz Roglic - Tirreno-Adriatico 2020: The RouteThe Tirreno-Adriatico was scheduled to take place from Wednesday 11 March to Tuesday the 17th. But the race has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak in Italy. New dates have yet to be announced. (Slideshow route/profile)

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.
