The penultimate stage of the 2020 Giro d’Italia will feature the Colle dell’Agnello, Col d’Izoard and Col de Montgenèvre ahead of a summit finish at Sestiere. Details of the stage were confirmed by La Gazzetta dello Sport ahead of the Giro 2020 route presentation, which takes place in Milan on Thursday.

The 200km-long stage 20 is set to be a brutal affair and will include some 5,000 metres of total climbing. The stage on May 30 begins amid the hills of Langhe in Alba, home of Ferrero chocolate and the writer Beppe Fenoglio, and the road rises steadily in the first half of the stage before the gruppo hits the four, fearsome categorised climbs.
