Tirreno-Adriatico 2020 Route stage 1: Lido di Camaiore - Lido di Camaiore

Tirreno-Adriatico stage 1Tuesday 8 September - The Tirreno-Adriatico does not serve a team time trial on the first day of action for a change. The out and back race in Lido di Camaiore is 133 kilometres long.

The kick-off in Lido di Camaiore remains unchanged, but the Tirreno-Adriatico does not open with a team time trial, which was standard procedure in the last four editions. BMC took the spoils most of the time, but when the team dismantled in 2019 Michelton-Scott powered to victory ahead of Jumbo-Visma and Team Sunweb.

The Tirreno-Adriatico opts for a different scenario in 2020 with a predominantly flat race of 133 kilometres on day one. The riders tackle two different laps. The first one is 26.9 kilometres long and features a 4.3 kilometres climb at 5%. As the first circuit is ridden three times, the uphill appears three times.

The route continues onto an entirely flat circuit of 18.3 kilometres, which is included twice. In fact, the last 55 kilometres of stage 1 are pan-flat.

The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint at kilometre 106 comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
