How much is the poggio? 5% at best?
That's clinic btw.
If you want to get banned you're doing great.
amazing how folks jump on every word here, almost not worth posting. is there a prize for most sarcastic or best know-it-all in a day?
as a a reference only, and just for the feel of it, the speed will be high, the road is quick and good and there will be attacks close to the top in the hope they can get away on the descent. it reminds me of MSR to which I just drew comparisons to the fast approaching Classic and how some of today's riders, many of them Classic bound, may attempt to showcase.
The Poggio has an average of 5-7% with parts stretching over 11% on the hairpins. Closer to the top it actually coms to 9%.
Have you ever ridden it? It's breathtaking.
