    Major Climb

    The climb starts in Cortina d’Ampezzo and winds over countless switchbacks, nestled in dense woods leading to a rocky mountain backdrop.

    Once you reach Passo Falzarego, it’s one last effort for a couple of meters of altitude before you reach the highest spot of the ride, the Passo Valparola.
