Thanks. Even the km are right, how do you do that? When i track it at bikeroutetoaster and then load it up at tracks4bikers the km are always wrong.
Way to tease us by going right past the Zoncolan, but not going over it.fauniera said:Giro d'Italia
Stage 14: Gemona - Pontebba, 230 km
This is the longest stage of this Giro, and one of the hardest. The first climbs are Clauzetto (7,7 km 5,5%) and Forcella di Monte Rest (11,1 km 5,9%). Things are getting more serious with Passo del Pura (11,8 km 7,4%), which is followed by the relatively easy Sella di Razzo (12,8 km 6,1%).
With 80 km to go the monster that is Monte Crostis waits. 14 km at 10,1%, let that sink in. All this on a narrow and spectacular road. On the top there is of course the famous Panoramica delle Vette. It's a strada sterrato, but a lot has been invested into safety prior to the Giro 2011. Here is an excellent video of the Panoramica delle Vette and the following descent. As you can see, the descent, while highly technical and very narrow, has very good tarmac, probably all new for the Giro.
I think chances are really good that the race blows apart on the Crostis, either the ascent, oder the sterrato, or the descent. Which leaves 46 km of racing, which should be pretty interesting. There is nearly no respite, as the road climbs again to Forcella di Lius, which looks tiny in comparison with the Crostis, but is a decent climb with 9,4 km at 5,3%.
The final climb of the day is Passo del Cason di Lanza. You will remember it from the Giro stage to Altopiano del Montasio this year. It's a two part climb. First 4,6 km at 8,9%, then a short descent, then the brutal second part with 5,5 km at 10,3%. After that the riders will descend into Pontebba, which is a steep affair for the first 8 km. I call this the queen stage, in total there are 6.300 vertical meters to climb.
Yeah, i guess i agree. I should soften stage 13 or 15, the Crostis stage stays as it is. I like your Tour so far, as well as roundabout's Giroesque Tour.Another_Dutch_Guy said:Those are some heavy stages Fauniera! I especially like the stages with the Crostis and Alpe di Siusi, but I think combined with the friday stage it's a bit to much. Not sure if the roads that day are wide enough as well.
