    The modified race route of the 19th stage of the Giro d'Italia 2013: Ponte di Legno > Val MartelloFor the 3rd time since the start of the Giro d'Italia 2013, its organisor, RCS Sport, has been obliged to modify the race route of one of its stages.

    In this article you'll discover the new race route, on Google Maps and downloadable in Google Earth, the new time- and route schedule and the new profile of the 19th stage of the Tour of Italy 2013 which will take place between Ponte di Legno and Val Martello.

    After the 14th stage saw the climb of Sestrière being cut off and the 15th stage which had been reduced of 4.25 kilometers and which couldn't go up till the top of the Galibier, this is the third time the organisor of the Tour of Italy has a hard time weather and race route wise spoken.

    Indeed, due to the weather conditions getting worse again, and in order to make sure the race will not end up in a snow storm, the Stelvio and Gavia will not be on the programme of the Giro tomorrow. The cimma coppi, the rooftop of the Giro d'Italia will thus not be reached since right from the kilometer 0 of the stage in Ponte di Legno, the riders will turn east instead of going up north. By doing so, they'll rapidly start the climb of the first difficulty of this new race route, the Passo del Tonale, of the 2nd category. This difficulty is 8.3 kilometers long with an average steepness of 7.5% and going up to a maximum of 10%.

    In the descente of this climb they'll battle for the first intermediate sprint, in Malè, and then go on with the climb of the Passo Castrin / Hofmahdjoch (1st category), never climbed before in the Giro d'Italia. This second difficulty is half-way in the stage, now 160 kilometers long, and is 8.4 kilometers long with an average steepness of 9.5% and going up to a maximum of no less than 13%.

    After a new intermediate sprint in Naturno, the riders will turn left in Coldrano to get back on the initial race route, with the climb towards Val Martello (1st category).

    Hereunder you'll find the new race route, drawn in red on the map, knowing that the initial race route is also shown on the map, drawn in blue.

  1. Bonjour à tous,

    étape annulée en fin de compte. Risque de voir celle de demain annulée également est forte avec les conditions climatiques et la neige qui tombe et qui est encore annoncée pour aujourd'hui et demain.
    Le classement n'évoluera donc certainement plus, sauf reprise demain.

    Nous avons eu un giro bien morne sans toutes ces étapes. Les organisateurs vont certainement éviter de rester trop longtemps dans les Alpes pour l'année prochaine pour préférer les Appenins à mon avis.

    Bonne journée

  2. Etape annulée. C'est pas ASO qui aurait eu le courage de prendre cette décision...

    | Svam | friday 24 May 2013 at 10:39:27

  3. Quand on doit passer des sommets comme celui-ci, je pense que n'importe qui prendrait la décision d'annuler l'étape :

  4. l'épisode de froid est exceptionnel donc je ne vois pas pourquoi les organisateurs raboteraient les Alpes dans le futur.

  5. à Svam,

    bien sûr que si qu'ils auraient annulé ASO et encore heureux (ils ne sont pas fou). Il restait encore les piémonts pour tracer mais tout prévoir en dernière minute est infaisable.

    @ Julien, les organisateurs devraient revoir les arrivées pour faire des Appenins, des Alpes liguriennes, de la Lucanie et de la Calabre des sites plus propices pour un mois de mai, c'est exceptionnel oui pour le Giro, mais pas exceptionnel pour un mois de mai

  6. Quelle malchance pour les organisateurs et les fans! Alors qu'on avait 2 superbes étapes sur le papier. C'est très décevant.

    Cela va également sans doute couter le classement par point à Evans.

  7. l'étape de demain commence à subir des modifications, tous les cols supprimés sauf le final Passo Tre Croci + Tre Cime

  8. Aurelien M > (cf.Svam) C'était une boutade.

    La photo du tweet est juste incroyable. On est "seulement" au Passo del Tonale.
