The individual time trial is “special” as is SPECIAL the GiroSardegna 2020!
It is short but fast (the time trial bikes will certainly have an advantage) and safe (the road is closed to the traffic so there will be just the race)!
Cars cannot follow race cyclists but in case of mechanical demage the cyclist can start again at the end of the others.
The departure is given in the SP69, just after the intersection with the road leading to the SP42 “Strada dei due Mari” (the start / finish is 14 km from the Hotels A, B, C and 20 from Hotel D). The cyclists will go to the start “warming up the leg” in the approach path, then go up on the platform in a reverse way to the general classification (the first depart first and the strongest start at the end) according to what established by the Jury and exposed from Sunday afternoon to briefing and in the websites of the GiroSardegna and Timing: it will be the responsibility of the Jury to start the competitors properly spaced to avoid the wakes.
Path in which only the athletes of MedioGiro compete: departure immediately after the intersection. The road, closed to traffic for the entire duration of the race, runs entirely until it reaches its end (just before the intersection with the SP42 – Strada dei Due Mari) and then reverses the direction and returns to the point of departure. The course is very suitable for developing speed and power; time trial bikes will certainly have an advantage.
After the race, everyone returns independently to the hotels of residence.
