Giro d’Italia Stage 20 – Passa del Tonale
The spectacle of Stage 20 is another reason why I love the Giro so much. What other race sends the riders up snow capped mountains with ski season still in full swing? The organizers had a few other routes planned in case snow fell like the forecast had predicted, however judging by past history it would have taken a blizzard for them to change the route.
How exciting was it seeing Lloydie battling it out for the mountains classification and getting back the jersey!
