This 103rd edition will take place between Saturday 3 October and Sunday 25 October, starting in Monreale in Sicily. Having been due to roll out from Budapest, Hungary, this year’s Giro will now be a strictly all-Italian affair. 

Riders from 23 teams, including 2019 champion Richard Carapaz (Team Ineos Grenadiers), will tackle the 3,497.9km route over the 21 stages. 

Three individual time trials will take place – the first on stage one is across 15.1km; the second will be a 34.1km trial from Conegliano to Valdobbiadene at stage 14; while the last one is the Giro d’Italia’s finale across stage 21’s 15.7km run in to Milan. 

There’s no shortage of picturesque landscapes to provide some much-needed escapism. In fact, the first mountain-top finish on stage three is atop Mount Etna – a protected UNESCO World Heritage site. 

The three tough mountain stages in the final week –  taking in famous climbs including the Stelvio and Col d’Izoard will be key too, showing us who’s got life left in their legs for the 2020 title. 

Whether you’re in the UK or US, here’s how to watch the 2020 Giro d’Italia.
