Giro d'Italia 2020 route presentation - Gallery

Organisers RCS Sport revealed the route details of the 2020 Giro d'Italia at an official presentation in Milan on Thursday. The 103rd edition of the Corsa Rosa will begin in Budapest on May 9, and after a mountainous third week, will conclude in Milan’s Piazza del Duomo on May 31.

Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) was seated on stage during the presentation where he confirmed his participation in the 2020 Giro d'Italia for the first time in his career. He will thus skip the Tour of California in May. Bora-Hansgrohe also confirmed that Sagan will compete in the 2020 Tour de France in July.

Defending champion of the Giro d'Italia, Richard Carapaz (Movistar), who will race for Team Ineos next year, was also on stage during the route presentation. The Ecuadorian won this year's edition ahead of Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma).

Nibali, who moves to Trek-Segafredo next year, was not at the presentation, however, he provided RCS Sport with a video message for the audience.

CPA president Gianni Bugno, who won the 1990 edition of the Giro d'Italia, was interviewed while seated in the audience front row.

The site was purchased by Knapp Communications in 1999, and owner Gerard Knapp built it into the definitive voice of pro cycling. Since then, major publishing house Future PLC has owned the site and expanded it to include top features, news, results, photos and tech reporting. The site continues to be the most comprehensive and authoritative English voice in professional cycling.
