After Friday's ugly stage, Saturday's penultimate stage of the Giro isn't much better, with yet another 4000m of climbing and seven hours in the saddle. After a second stage start in Trento, Stage 20 climbs the Passo Tonale, then up the steep Passo Gavia to the Giro's high point of Cima Coppi (2618m), the brutally steep Mortirolo where the Memorial Pantani awaits 8 km up the ascent. Once over the summit, a 15 km descent to Edolo awaits before the final climb of the Giro up Passo Aprica. Although the final 15 ascent to Aprica isn't that hard, after almost 200 km of racing, it will be exceptionally difficult.
