    If they have to cancel the Stelvio, we might end up with a climb being the Cima Coppi that isn't even the highest point of the Giro.

    I've had a look at the profiles:
    Altitude Climb Stage
    2758 Stelvio 18
    2744 Agnello 20
    2360 Izoard 20
    2035 Sestriere 20
    1938 Torri di Fraele 18
    1793 Etna 3
    1782 Forcella Valbona 17
    1618 Valico di Montescuro 5

    If stages 18 and 20 both fall victim to the weather, today's Etna finish would be the highest point of the race - but since you can't designate a climb to be Cima Coppi after it's been raced, that prize would most likely go to the Forcella Valbona ... or, if only stage 18 is cancelled, to the Colle d'Agnello.
