Giro d’Italia Shortens the 13th Stage Due to Extreme Weather Warning

The Giro d’Italia organizer has faced weather challenges and has decided to shorten the 13th stage of the race due to a warning of torrential rain. The stage was initially 207 kilometers long, starting in Borgofranco d’Ivrea and finishing in Crans Montana, Switzerland. It was then shortened to 199 kilometers due to weather concerns and now it is clear that it will be shortened even further – to just 74.6 kilometers.

The new stage will start at the foot of the Croix de Coeur mountain and end with a tough climb up to the Swiss ski resort of Crans Montana. Geraint Thomas of Great Britain currently leads the overall standings after 12 stages.
