The Tour of the Alps has presented its course for the 2020 edition of the race when it will become part of the ProSeries.

The race presented the route for its 44th edition -if its past as the Giro del Trentino is considered- or the fourth if only the newer and more international set-up is taken into account. The race will be held between April 20 and 24, just days before the start of the Giro d'Italia.

The race will start in Brixen, in northern Italy, on April 20 and will take the riders to Innsbruck over a 142.8-kilometre route and that will include a stretch of the course of the 2018 World championship's time trial. The second day will start in Innsbruck and finish in Feichten Im Kaunertal after 121.5 kilometres over a route that features 2640 metres of elevation gain.

The third stage will have a return to South Tyrol with arrival in Naturns after the riders have faced a 163.9-kilometre course that includes some heavy climbs but finishes in a hilly stretch. The fourth stage will be the longest of the edition with a 168.6-kilometre course that features the greatest elevation gain (3380 metres) and one of the highest ever recorded in the race with one climb of the first category to Passo Campo Carlo Magno and another ascent of the second category to Boniprati.

The final stage will be 120.9 kilometres long and will feature a series of short and hard climbs that add to the efforts of the day before. The finish will be at the Piazza Battisti of Riva del Garda, where the successor of Pavel Sivakov (Team Ineos) will be known.
