The Tirreno-Adriatico’s last stage represents a longstanding tradition.
Firstly, the race ends in San Benedetto del Tronto for the 54th time in 55 editions. Only the inaugural edition, which ran from San Benedetto del Tronto to Pescara, had a different finish.
Secondly, the route is a carbon copy of the final stages during the last decade. The riders roll down the ramp and race 5 kilometres one way and following two 90-degree turns in short succession another 5 kilometres back. The intermediate time check is at the halfway turning point.
Victor Campenaerts powered to victory in 2019, while Primoz Roglic took the overall victory 1 second ahead of Adam Yates.
