The Tirreno-Adriatico’s kick-off in Lido di Camaiore remains unchanged. Although the route is slightly altered, the riders tackle two different laps. The first one is 23.5 kilometres long and features a 4.3 kilometres climb at 5%, while the second one is 29.1 kilometres long. As the first circuit is ridden three times, the uphill appears three times.
The second circuit is entirely flat and is included twice.
The Tirreno-Adriatico opened with a team time trial in 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019, but opted for a different scenario in 2020. Pascal Ackermann said ‘thank you’ and outsprinted Fernando Gaviria and Magnus Cort in the streets of beach resort Lido di Camaiore.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
