The organisation of Tirreno-Adriatico has announced the complete route of the 2020 edition of the race.

The 55th edition of the Italian race will take place between the seventh and the 14th of September after the calendar had to be rebuilt due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The race will have eight stages, instead of the usual seven, two suitable for sprinters, two on mixed terrain for finisseurs, two in the mountains including an uphill finish in Sarnano-Sassotetto and a final time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto.

"We want to say thank you to all the Administrations – in the Regions, Provinces and Municipalities – that have always supported this international event," said Mauro Vegni, RCS Sport Cycling Director. "Through the images distributed all over the world we will once again showcase – both from a landscape, as well as a cultural point of view – all the territories crossed by the race. Together we will give a new sign of restarting the country, always respecting safety, because cycling is a formidable vehicle for launching these restarting messages."

"Thanks to the eight stages we have been able to make the race a bit harder and to balance the stages for sprinters, for finisseurs and for climbers in addition to the usual final ITT," added Stefan Allocchio, Race Director of RCS Sport. "Despite the change of date, we have found in local administrations the maximum availability that will allow us to organize a top quality Tirreno-Adriatico. We will have almost all the riders who will then participate in the Giro d'Italia in October and we are convinced that, as in recent years, it will be a Race of the Two Seas of the highest level."
