The 2020 Giro Italia was to have taken place from 9 to 31 May 2020, as the 103rd edition of the Giro d'Italia, a three-week Grand Tour cycling stage race. The start of the 2020 Giro (known as the Grande Partenza) had been planned to take place in Budapest, Hungary, which would have been the 14th time the Giro has started outside Italy, and the first time a Grand Tour has visited Hungary. The event was jeopardised by the COVID-19 pandemic in Italy, and in March 2020 it was postponed. UCI announced that both Giro and Vuelta will take place in autumn after the 2020 UCI Road World Championships. On 5 May, UCI announced that the Giro will take place between 3 October and 25 October.
