GRAND TOUR OF THE GRAND TOURS (3rd contest of the 2020 season)
maps/tours/view/14177

This was my submission for the Grand Tour of the Grand Tours contest. The contest took place during the first lockdowns in March/April of 2020, after all three GTs of the season were postponed. Not knowing if the races will be held, we were tasked with creating a 21-day race using seven stages in each country (Italy, France, Spain). I failed miserably, because of the transfer after the 3rd stage.

Stages 1-3, 11-13 and 21 are organised by ASO, stages 4-10 are organised by RCS and stages 14-20 are organised by Unipublic. Four of the 21 stages take place outside of Italy, France or Spain (Stages 4 and 5 in Slovenia, Stage 11 in Monaco and Stage 15 in Andorra). The race also features two plane transfers (the first one after the stage 3 from North of France to the Italian-Slovenian border and the second one after stage 20 from Madrid to Paris)
Spoiler!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OVERALL PLAN:
21 stages from 05. to 27.09.20 (8 flat, 3 Medium Mountain, 7 High Mountain and 3 ITT's of 84.5 km total)
73 classified climbs (8x HC, 16x C1, 20x C2, 13xC3 and 16x C4)
3366 kilometres (160km/day on average, shortest stage 112.5km, longest 225.5km)
Image

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

STAGE 1 (Saturday, 05.09.20): Mont-Saint-Michel -> Trouville-sur-Mer; 225,5 km (Flat)
Opening stage of the tour on the coasts of Normandy. An easy stage with a few rolling hills, although the climb to Auberville 13km from the finish could lead to some sprinters being dropped.

STAGE 2 (Sunday, 06.09.20): Le Havre -> Amiens; 216 km (Flat)
An even easier stage than the first one takes the riders from Normandy to the Hauts-de-France region. The riders will also cross the Seine river estuary via the Pont-de-Normandie. A stage to end with a bunch sprint.
Image
~~~~~

STAGE 3 (Monday, 07.09.20): Cambrai -> Roubax; 152 km (Flat with cobblestones)
A stage dedicated to the Paris-Roubaix classic features 18 cobbled sectors totaling 30,4 km in length. While the first few sectors were taken out, the riders will still have to tackle the most iconic cobblestones (Arenberg, Pont Gibus, Mons-en-Pevele, Camphin-en-Pevele and Carrefour de l' Arbre). The stage is short to allow for a plane transfer.

~~~ PLANE TRANSFER FROM LILLE AIRPORT TO AIRPORT RONCHI DEL LEGIONARI (no rest day) ~~~

STAGE 4 (Tuesday, 08.09.20): Nova Gorica -> Sveta Gora; 35,5 km (Mountain Time Trial)
First of the two stages held in Slovenia (organised by RCS) is a Mountain time trial. The stages in Slovenia are in the race to substitute the cancelled Tour of Slovenia but also to commemorate 100 years of Italian occupation of Western Slovenia (which lasted 27 years from 1920 to 1947).
The time trial starts in Nova Gorica and 25 flat kilometres. The flat section is followed by a climb to Rafut (1 km at about 8%) to soften the legs, and then finaly the ascent to Sveta Gora (5,5 km @ 9,7%). This time trial is similar to the time trial to the Planche des Belles Filles.

STAGE 5 (Wednesday, 09.09.20): Most na Soci -> Mangartsko sedlo; 199 km (High Mountain)
Stage 5 is a very scenic stage, albeit also a tough one (D+ = 4974m). It starts at Most na Soci, then passes through the Baca Valley, by the lakes Bled and Bohinj and through the valley of Sava Dolinka with two mountain passes in between. After Kranjska gora the Vrsic pass (9km @ 8,3%) which has 50 hairpins, 24 of them are cobbled. On the summit of Vrsic the bonus seconds will be awarded for the first time in the race. After Vrsic the route follows the river Soca to the final climb of the day - Mount Mangart (17km @ 8,4%). The last 10 kilometers are run on a very narrow and scenic road. Mount Mangart is also the first time the race goes over 2000m.

STAGE 13 (Friday, 18.09.20): Aix-en-Provence -> Montpellier; 204 km (Flat):

A mountainous stage on the French-Spanish border (organised by Unipublic). Featuring Coll d' Ares (13km @ 5,9%) and the final climb to Valter2000 (20,3km @ 4,8%), the stage is a good warmup for what is about to come on the next day.

TOUR OF SLOVENIA (non-contest race, 2019)
maps/tours/view/13223

This was the very first tour I created on this site in late 2019. I decided to try with tour of Slovenia (my country) and make it harder. Only one stage remains in the north-eastern part of the country, and the core of the race is in the western part with mountains.
Spoiler!
OVERALL PLAN:
5 stages from 10. to 14.06.20 (1 flat, 2 Medium Mountain, 1 High Mountain and 1 ITT of 37 km)
15 classified climbs (1x HC, 4x C1, 1x C2, 5xC3 and 4x C4)
725 kilometres (145km/day on average, shortest stage 153km, longest 189km)

--------------------
STAGE 1 (10.06.20): Maribor/Ljubljana; 158 km (Flat)
Image
The first stage starts in Slovenia's second largest city and ends in the capital of Ljubljana. There are some small hills, but it should still go to the sprinters

STAGE 2 (11.06.20): Secovlje/Ankaran; 37 km (ITT)
Image
An ITT along most of the Slovenia's 46-kilometre short coastline. Not the hardest as it could be, but it is still quite long.

STAGE 3 (12.06.20): Koper/Nova Gorica; 187,5 km (M. Mountain)
Image
This stage is kind of a crossover between Strade Bianche and Giro di Lombardia. The stage features 12 sectors of unpaved gravel road and two brutal climbs in the second half (Temnica - 3,7km/10% and Sveta Gora (6,1km/8,6% with the final 2,5 kilometres at 15%-30%)

STAGE 4 (13.06.20): Most na Soci/Mangartsko Sedlo; 189 km (Mountain)
Image
Stage 4 is a true High Mountain stage - something that organizers of ToS like to avoid for some reason (the last stage over Vrsic was 9 years ago). There are four difficult mountain passes in this stage, with the finishline on the highest road in Slovenia.

STAGE 5 (14.06.20): Visnja Gora/Novo Mesto; 153 km (M. Mountain)
Image
The last stage takes place in the Lower Carniola region with a traditional finish in Novo Mesto. Despite being the final stage, this is anything but flat, and if the GC contenders are close together, things could still change.
