Giro 2013 finish times

10 Jan 2013 08:45

I'm trying to work out what time of day the stages of the 2013 Giro will be planned to finish. I am sure it will be calculated to fit in with TV schedules etc, but am just wondering what that means. 5pm? 6pm? Or are they running night time stages? If anyone knows anything I would greatly appreciate the input!

I'm pretty sure the TV schedules will be made to fit in with the (estimated) finish times, not the other way around.
It has reached my attention that some people seem to think I would make a good mod.
Forget it! It's not gonna happen. EVER!

Target finish time will likely be between 17.00 - 17.30 for all stages (Central European Summer Time)

The roadbook, when available, will give us precise information.

Generally all stages are meant to finish between 5 and 6 pm CET.
We won't know further details until April I guess, when they'll publish all the timetables.
A race that doesn't give an attacker the chance to finish it off alone is not a race anymore.

Another question, does anyone know about road closures for the Giro? I know for Tour de France the roads are often closed to everyone who isn't accredited for several hours at a time, but at the Vuelta last year there were times when I was able to ride until the peleton was only a few minutes away, and then start again within about 5 minutes. Any idea what it is like at the Giro?
