Well apparently we learn the start next week but I have no idea about the entire route presentation. I hope they do it all at once like the Tour did.I read somewhere that the official presentation would be mid-february. Can it be confirmed here?
Secondly how are the rumors on that Tre Cime stage? What could be before Tre Cime?
it has been said but it's not official as far as I know.I read somewhere that the official presentation would be mid-february. Can it be confirmed here?
Splügenpass from that side is just stunning.This just in, from a well known (and usually very reliable) cicloweb user based in Piedmont:
1 Torino ITT
2 road stage somewhere near Torino
3 Torino? - Novara
19 ??? - Alpe di Mera MTF
20 Verbania-Madesimo (via San Bernardino and Splügen)
21 Milano (not known if ITT or road stage)
The final stages being in Piedmont are pretty believable considering the weird rest day after stage 16 - there is likely gonna be a transfer.
Alpe di Mera
Splügenpass (from Splügen, 10 km of descending false flat away from the end of San Bernardino's descent)
The last combo is pretty good, but going to Switzerland is risky... just like France last year.
It looks basically like Val Thorens.Splügenpass from that side is just stunning.
From the other side you could have Passo San Marco early on, but it would be fa away from the finish line.
The Swiss have been pretty easy with their Covid restrictions because of Tourism, so it could work out.
Otherwise you can always have a really big MTF in Montespluga.
San Bernadino is a badass climb, almost 1,900m of altitude gain.
hilly, but we don't have details yet.Please finish in Cortina an not on Tre Cime.
Whata sort of stage is stage 15?
yeah but no one talked about S.Marco anyway...Verbania - Madesimo via San Marco would be about 270km at a glance, so not very realistic.
This seems much better than what you have posted earlier. Medium mountain stages on stage 4, 6, 9 and 11 including a HTF at stage 6 and MTF at stage 10. And a sterrato stage at stage 5.1 Torino ITT
2 Torino - Novara
3 Biella - Alba
4 ??? - Sestola
5 Modena - Montalcino or Siena
6 Siena? - Monte Compatri
7 ??? - somewhere towards Foggia
8 Foggia - ???
9 Castel di Sangro - Campo Felice
10 L'Aquila - Ascoli (Colle S.Marco)
11 Foligno - Perugia ITT (OR Frasassi - Ravenna)
12 Frasassi - Ravenna (OR Ravenna - Verona)
13 Ravenna - Verona (OR ITT in Veneto)
14 Cittadella - Zoncolan
15 Grado - Gorizia
16 Pordenone - Cortina or Tre Cime di Lavaredo
17 ??? - ???
18 ??? - ???
19 ??? - Alpe di Mera
Yes, if we had a classic rest day after stage 15 it would work out a lot better. I guess it also comes down to how hard the Gorizia stage will be, I guess you can put the San Floriano climb in it and do something with the Ravnica ascent on the Slowenian side.A shame that they won't/can't have Gorizia after Tre Cime. It will probably then be another late hilly/medium mountain stage that functions as a GC rest day.
yes, minus the last section.Btw, San Marco above Ascoli. This is not the same as San Giancomo?
