I dont see why a GT cant have more mid mouintain /rollimg stages
The Tour a few years ago was better for it

All these high mountains are not good if everyone is on the same climbinglevel
Because GC organisers, large chunks of the media and many casual fans have a hard-on for the 'spectacle' of a hard and preferably famous MTF. And the sport is worse for it, remember the 2015 and 2016 Giri where the hardest MTF across both editions was probably Campitello Matese?
Mayor of Verona may want to reconsider hosting the final stage.
Just do the WC circuit on the final day (the 2004 one). 10-12 laps.

This is why GTs need LONG TTs again

As it is, he have a loserville giro, where nobody wants to risk their precious 10th place finish

Remco could have won this race drunk, given the lack of attacking. These guys wouldn't know what to do when he attacked on a long range raid
Look I am all for not rating Carapaz but "Evenepol woulda won" based on beating the God climber Jay Vine probably takes it a little far.
