Giro d’Italia 2018 Stage 20 Profile. Saturday, May 26 – Susa / Cervinia
Type: High Mountain (Summit finish)
Length: 214 km
Second stage in the Western Alps with 4500-m cumulative elevation gain along 3 climbs only, following a flat (though continuously uphill) section. Once in Valle d’Aosta the race takes in the new 3-km Col Tsecore climb with its last stretch at a gradient over 12% and, after a fast-running descent, the route features St. Pantaléon and Cervinia climbs with no respite. Col Tsecore has a “changing” name: from the original Col du Mont-Tseuc, in its Italian version it is called Zuccore as well as Tzecore. The Giro adopts the local signposting denomination that says “Col Tsecore”.
