    The modified race route of the 20th stage of the Giro d'Italia 2013: Silandro - Tre Cime di LavaredoAfter the the initial announcement of a modification of the 19th stage which was finally followed by a complete cancellation of yesterday's stage because the snow on top of the lower mountains on the modified race route was still too important to let the stage go off, the forelast stage of the Giro d'Italia 2013 today will also follow a modified race route.

    In this article you'll find the new race route, on Google Maps and downloadable in Google Earth, the new time- and route schedule and the new profile of the 20th stage of the Tour of Italy 2013 which will take place between Silandro (Schlanders) and Tre Cime di Lavaredo (Auronzo).

    This is thus the 4th time since the start of the Giro d'Italia 2013 that a stage has been impacted by the crazy weather for this month of May.

    This time, the climbs of the Passo Costalunga (1,745 meters), the Passo san Pellegrino (1,918 meters) and most importantly the Passo Giau (2,236 meters) have been judged impossible to get over with the snow level still being around 1,800/1,900 meters. The final climb, towards Tre Cime di Lavarado, which has its summit at an altitude of 2,304 meters and which will thus become the new cima coppi (the rooftop of the Giro d'Italia) has however not been removed from the modified stage map. At least at the place where this photo was taken this morning, the road seems to be clear:


    For the new race route, the peloton will follow the initial route until they arrive in Bolzano where they'll turn north-east via Bressanone and Brunico before getting back down south, after the new sprint in Dobbiaco, towards the sprint which was already planned to take place in Cortina d'Ampezzo . That's where the riders get back on the initial race route and where they start the climb of the Passo Tre Croci< (1,805 m) first, followed by the final climb up to the finish line.

    Hereunder you'll find the new race route, drawn in red on the map, while the initial race route is also visible on this map, drawn in blue.
