What to expect

Stage 1: Budapest-Budapest

Saturday 9 May 2020, 8.6 km

A short individual time trial running flat for the first 6 km, and then rising for the following 2 km. The stage is played out on wide and mostly straight city streets, up to the foot of the climb leading to the Castle Quarter. Gradients exceed 10% (topping out at 14%) over the first 300 m towards the castle, the climb then continues, uncomplicated, all the way to the finish. The fight between GC contenders will be on since the first stage, which may already provide a rough ranking of the “top players”.
