Giro d'Italia 2024 Giro d'Italia route rumours

Page 23 - Get up to date with the latest news, scores & standings from the Cycling News Community.
NARRATOR: You do get a better stage by not "wasting" Stelvio. And it is possible to use the tunnel.
Like today, I'd have them drive through the tunnel in cars. Neutral start on the bikes before and afterwards.
I don't know how you got that conclusion from today. Planning like this from the beginning would be a total pointless exercises from an organizers perspective. Even as someone who'd sacrifice alot for better stage design, all that just to potentially have a better stage because you face Stelvio from the other side would be a ridiculous effort/reward calculation in my opinion.
