The rescheduled 2020 Giro d’Italia will get underway with four stages in Sicily, beginning on Saturday October 3 with a fast 16km individual time trial from the cathedral at Monreale into the heart of Palermo.

The Grande Partenza was originally due to take place in Budapest in May, but the three stages in Hungary were removed from the route following the postponement of the Giro due to the coronavirus pandemic. The 2020 Corsa Rosa will take place from October 3-25.
