GOOD MORNING FROM MOTTA MONTECORVINO FOR THE LAST STAGE OF THE GIRO ROSA
The day of the verdict has arrived: in a few hours we will know who has won the Giro Rosa 2020, the Giro of the restart. The last stage will not be a passerella, as tends to happen, but it can seriously decide the final general classification. From Motta Montecorvino to Motta Montecorvino for a total of 109.9 kilometers. Not a meter of plain from the initial kilometers and a circuit to be repeated four times, climbing the Volturino and arriving uphill in the city of Motta Montecorvino, where a third category GPM is located. The tiredness of the eight previous stages could be felt and the general classification, given the reduced gaps, could undergo various changes. Stage to be followed with the utmost attention. Anna Van der Breggen is in pink jersey.

MOTTA MONTECORVINO
The starting and finishing point of the last stage of the Giro Rosa 2020 is always Puglia, also the province of Foggia, with the city of Motta Montecorvino. Located in the Subappenino dauno, 662 meters above sea level, Motta Montecorvino is right in front of Monte Sambuco. The town was reborn after the fall of the town of Montecorvino, abandoned by the inhabitants around 1375. The historic center, where the Church of San Giovanni Battista is located, retains its medieval appearance. The presence on the territory of the Monte Sambuco transmitting center, one of the main RAI stations, which is militarily protected, should be noted. Not to be missed in the vicinity of the village is the so-called `` Chair of the Devil '': the remains of an ancient tower that has changed over the centuries and has gradually taken on the shape of a large chair that shows itself in all its beauty a truly unique landscape.
