Italy


Passo di Gavia

Harbs chose the base camp for this years post Marmotte touring. Bormio. We planned to do the three classic climbs of the Giro: the Stelvio, the Gavia, and the Mortirolo.  As climbing isn't exactly his best discipline, it was a brave choice!

Passo di Mortirolo

"Its a terrible climb... It´s perfect for a mountain bike.  On the hardest parts, I was riding a 39 x 27 and I was hurting, really hurting.  The Mortirolo is the hardest climb I´ve ever ridden.  My time up the climb?  It's not important...." (Lance Armstrong - 2004).
