The rescheduled 2020 edition of the Giro d'Italia is well underway in its unusual October time slot, after the coronavirus pandemic forced pro cycling to come to an abrupt stop in the spring.
All of the rose-coloured glory of the Grande Partenza was shifted from Budapest to Sicily amid the uncertainty, making for an almost entirely Italian percorso that stretches from the Mediterranean to the Alps as the autumn leaves begin to fall.
WIlco Kelderman (Sunweb) holds the pink jersey after João Almeida (Deceuninck-QuickStep) dropped out of contention on stage 18 over the Stelvio. Kelderman's teammate Jai Hindley won the stage ahead of Ineos man Tao Geoghegan Hart, moving up to second overall as Geoghegan Hart took third. Stage 20 will see the trio do battle on the summit finish of Sestriere.
