CLIMB SUMMARY

Climb summary by Craig Arcuri, Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

This climb literally starts on the doorstep of the popular hotel for cyclists, Hotel Funivia. Or if coming from elsewhere in Bormio, go to the edge of town (heading toward Gavia) and take a right at the stone bridge. The climb is 7.7% for 5.84 miles and maintains a fairly steady grade throughout. You quickly ascend above Bormio and get some great views of the town early on.

 It’s a particular treat to be going up when several of the town’s church bells are ringing. There are lots of switchbacks on the route and you’re climbing in wooded sections for much of the climb. But there are some treeless areas which provide great panoramic views of the town and surrounding mountains. On the final switchback, you can see the Ski Lodge in the distance up the road. It’s easy to imagine a sprint finish here from past Giro’s, and seeing the Lodge is certainly inspiration to get up out of the saddle. The lodge has some outdoor dining and a scenic lookout with more great views. If you look carefully to the right, you can see the switchbacks of Torri Di Fraele several miles away. The road is in okay shape with a few potholes but nothing that hinders the descent using a little caution.
