In other words, they have learned a lot from this years MAGNIFICENT AND FABOULUS exitement during the whole Giro for the deciding attack to happen on stage 20? :tearsofjoy:
Listening the people on GCN you would of thought that.... The myth that just because a race is close means it's good. The 2012/22 Giro's were both very close, and they were both terrible.
This year's Tour surely has shown that a race can have large time gaps and be super exciting.
 
Finestre-Sestriere was in 2018. They had San Carlo-Courmayeur and Mortirolo-Ponte di Legno in 2019. Stelvio+ Torre in 2020 along with the canceled Agnello/Izoard monster stage.

To me it weirdly seems like they gave up after 2020.
Yeah, I don't understand it either. Some kind of fixation of Veghni and RCS. I don't think it's a coincidence that the latest two versions have focused much on medium long but steep MTFs. Like Sega di Ala, Alpe di Mera, Fedaia, Lavarone. It's a desired policy by RCS.

The've followed the Galibier-Les Deux Alpes recipe for ages and it delivered over and over again. Weird they've decided to drop it after Stelvio 2020.

If they want a Vuelta like mountain stage, just finish upwards Finonchio or Zugna after the rest day. Nothing wrong with that.

The Cortina stage in 2021 would have been a proper tappone, but Vegni let the velon clowns (and some other teams) tell them that he needed to shorten the stage and since then it looks like he has given up...

Still pissy about it actually.

That stage might have delivered Bardet a temporary podium spot he would have had to defend.

While Yates after losing precious time really would've been forced to earn his podium spot in contrary.

I have also have a very hard time understanding this. Especially when some of the places that have had a MTF are virtually minuscule, while some big resorts and larger villages/smaller towns could easily be a stage finish for stages with excellent design.

while the news of Crans Montana were know since quite some time, that article actually states that it will be stage 12, not 13 as previous rumours indicated. This might make some sense, since it would put the flattish Cesano Maderno stage on a friday instead of saturday.
Local article today spoiled the Grande Partenza and much of first week.

Here's the new draft:

1 Fossacesia - Ortona 18 km ITT
2 Teramo - San Salvo (flat)
3 Vasto - Lago Laceno (hilly - pseudoMTF)
4 ??? - ???
5 ??? - ???
6 something near Naples
7 Capua - Campo Imperatore (MTF)
8 Terni - Fossombrone
9 ??? - ???
rest
10 ??? - ??? (ITT in Emilia?)
11 ??? - ??? (Piedmont?)
12 ??? - Crans Montana (either here or on stage 13)
13 Sierre - Cesano Maderno? (or on stage 14)
14 Seregno - Bergamo (or on stage 15)
15 ??? -???
rest
16 Sabbio Chiese - Monte Bondone
17 ??? - Caorle
18 Oderzo - Zoldo Alto (Or Passo Cibiana)
19 Longarone - Tre Cime di Lavaredo
20 Tarvisio - Monte Lussari (16 km ITT)
21 Trieste or Rome

Not getting my hopes up, but Carpegna on stage 9 would make sense. They always have a mountain stage on the day before the rest day and while Fossombrone should feature a murito near the end if it's anything like the Tirreno stage in 2019, it doesn't qualify as one. And Carpegna is in the right area.
If stage 9 is an actual mountain stage that would actually be a decent first week.
Sierre - Cesano Maderno sounds super lame, if you come from Switzerland you could have a Verbania stage with Alpe Colle (like in 2015).
