The "Passo Dello Stelvio" is quite the enigma. Loved and revered whilst also feared this climb rewards with nothing other than a fearsome bite, akin to that of a viper, such is its severity. The road winds into the clouds and beyond like a mythical serpent, around countless bends for a staggering 24 kilometres. These famous "tournati” have challenged some of the greatest riders to have ever graced the Giro d'Italia. Legendary climbers such as Coppi and Gaul have battled this alpine snake whose combined duration and gradient took them to their limits.
Topping out at a terrifying altitude of 2757m the climb additionally tests via oxygen rarity and bitter cold, while factual past time tales of struggling professional riders haunt the mind of any rider brave enough to challenge this demon.
