A PARADISE FOR SKIERS, A POSSIBLE NIGHTMARE FOR CYCLIST

A PARADISE FOR SKIERS, A POSSIBLE NIGHTMARE FOR CYCLIST

ORTISEI: After the very high Lombardy mountains, the Giro ride a resistance stage like the one in Canazei where the group have been riding for almost six hours, and now the scenarios change once again. Starting from Moena, in Val di Fassa, after 137 kilometers the Giro arrive at Ortisei – St Ulrich after five great mountain pass (Pordoi Pass, Pasparal Pass, Passo Gardena, Passo Pinei and Pontives’ final climb) and an intense effort. The pink jersey is still dressed by Tom Dumoulin, the flying butterfly, who has been attacked on the uphill of Aprica, the first uphill at the start of the stage. An attack brought by his opponents to see if it was possible to gain […]

#INGIRO: THE HAT TRICK OF STELVIO

#INGIRO: THE HAT TRICK OF STELVIO

Welcome to the stage of the truth. Maybe we won’t found today who will win this Giro but surely we will know who will be excluded from the struggle for success.  Until today it seems to be a fight between three riders: Quintana, the one who started this Giro as favorite for the final victory, Dumoulin, the one who is so strong that he didn’t even expect to be, and the last one, the champion, Vincenzo Nibali, the one who in the third week of 2016 Giro managed to bring home the success when it seemed to be already lost.  The length of this stage is a feared ones, 254 […]

#INGIRO: EL TRIPLETE DEL STELVIO

La etapa de la verdad. No vamos a saber quien va a ganar esta carrera al final del día. Sin embargo, seguramente sabemos quién será excluido de la lucha por el éxito que hoy parece ser un discurso a 3: Quintana, inmediatamente dado por favorido y todavía hoy en busca de la victoria, la sorpresa Dumoulin, tan fuerte que incluso él no se lo esperaba, y el campeón, Vincenzo Nibali, que en la 3ª semana en el giro 2016 supo llevar a casa el éxito final cuando parecía un discurso cerrado. La longitud, 254 km, es de las dificiles, así como los más de 5.000 metros de desnivel.  El Mortirolo […]

VALDENGO BERGAMO

Comienza desde Valdengo (Biella) ya ciudad donde empezo el Giro en 2014. Los primeros 150 kilómetros son totalmente planos con los obstáculos usuales del camino (rotatorias, divisor del tráfico, etc) en casi todos los centros de ciudad. Es la etapa de posibles trampas y posibles emboscadas gracias al recorrido que se presta de una manera particular, en la parte final, con los ascensos de Miragolo San Salvatore (inédito) y Selvino (último GPM en 1995 a Tony Rominger). Después de Selvino sigue una descendida entremezclada con las curvas de la horquilla y 9 kilómetros de acercamiento a Bergamo Alta y entonces a la línea de final. Últimos kilómetros a través de […]

A FINISH LINE LIKE THE GIRO OF LOMBARDIA

This stage will start from Valdengo (Biella), starting point of the Giro even in 2014. The first 150 km are completely flat with the usual city center pitfalls (roundabouts, traffic divider etc).  This could be a pitfall stage thanks to the last kilometers, with the climbs of Miragolo San Salvatore (new climb for the Giro) and Selvino (last GPM here were in 1995 and saw the success of Tony Rominger). Leaving Selvino the roads follows a long descent with bends and then the last 9 kilometers approaching finish line. Last kilometers pass through Bergamo Alta, climbing to Porta Garibaldi and then, after 200m in cobbled area, to Largo Aperto. Cycling fans […]
