Giro d’Italia live in the ticker: 20th stage via Passo Pordoi to the mountain goal – fight for the pink jersey on the royal stage

The 20th stage of the Giro d’Italia 2022 is the last chance before the final time trial to run distances of the 168 kilometers up the mountain.

From Belluno it goes to Passo di Fedaia at an altitude of 257 meters, with passages at Passo San Pellegrino (1918 meters) and Passo Pordoi (2239m altitude) – Cima Coppi (highest point of the route) on this trip in Italy.

There are bonus seconds up for grabs at the finish line and in two intermediate sprints, which in turn can play an important role in today’s tight overall placement.

Favorites on the 20th Giro stage

Richard Carapaz (Ineos Grenadiers) and Jai Hindley (Bora – hansgrohe) are only three seconds apart. The man in pink is considered the better time trial player, so an attack from the Australian is expected. Third-placed Mikel Landa (Bahrain Victorious) is also just 1:05 behind and still wants to have an impact on the overall victory. In addition, the riders from Team UAE like Davide Formolo traded high – and Vincenzo Nibali on his last Giro mountain tape.
