Tirreno-Adriatico 2020: The Route
The Tirreno-Adriatico starts on Monday 7 September and will finish on Monday the 14th with the traditional ITT on the Adriatic coast. The race offers two days for the climbers, while a couple of hilly stages and chances for fast men round out the route.
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 133 kilometres long.
The 2nd stage, 201 kilometres in length, serves a lumpy first half, while the last 65 kilometres are completely flat were it not for a small kicker inside the final 10 kilometres.
At 217 kilometres, the longest race is played out on the third day of action. The 3rd stage is a lumpy leg with an promising finale. The Poggio Murella is a short and sharp climb that’s crested with 8.5 kilometres out. The home straight runs slightly uphill.
The Tirreno-Adriatico traverses the mountains on the fourth and fifth day of action. All climbs in stage 4 are situated inside the last 60 kilometres before the finale is a downhill into Cascia.
The 5th stage is especially demanding. Following an onslaught of shorter climbs the final haul up adds up to 13.1 kilometres at 7.3%. Two years ago Mikel Landa jumped to victory on the snow-banked finish in Sassotetto.
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 7th 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.
The Tirreno ends with the traditional fast and flat ITT along the Adriatic seafront.
