It must be taken into account that the opening day (Thursday 22nd) has a double sector: the morning stage will finish around 11.30am local, while the afternoon TTT should finish around 4.30pm. The stages on Friday and Sunday will also end around 4.00pm, with Saturday’s flat circuit in Crevalcore expected to finish around 4.25pm.
The organisers’ official Twitter account is @gsemilia; at their website, www.gsemilia.it, people are usually able to find a live ticker with info and results. The race’s hashtag is #CoppieBartali. Our handle @Movistar_Team will also inform on the Blues’ performances, in the middle of a very ‘crowded’ end to the week that also includes men’s and women’s events in Catalonia and Belgium.
