Organisers of the Giro d’Italia Internazionale Femminile have announced that the nine-day race will begin with a team time trial in Grosseto, Tuscany. The race was originally scheduled to take place June 26 to July 5, but was moved to September 11-19 as part of the post-COVID-19 revised Women's WorldTour calendar.

"We are by now used to the great sporting events," said the Mayor of Grosseto Antonfrancesco Vivarelli Colonna in a press release. "Our city in these years has become a reference point for national and international events. After athletics and baseball, it's the turn of cycling, so much so that the first pink jersey of the Giro Rosa U.C.I. Women's World Tour 2020 is assigned this year in our beautiful Grosseto.
