Another demanding day on the bike awaits as we embark on a loop ride tackling the challenging Mortirolo and Gavia climbs. Setting off from Bormio, our journey begins with the formidable Mortirolo ascent from Mazzo. With an unyielding average gradient never dropping below 8% and an overall average of 11%, this climb is a true test of endurance. Passing the Marco Pantani memorial adds a touch of cycling history before the road eases up from Grosio, leading to a summit with panoramic views of Alpine pastures.
The ensuing descent guides us through picturesque meadows, followed by a gentle climb to Pezzo. From this point, a 17 km ascent to the summit of the Gavia climb awaits, boasting an average gradient of 7.5%. The reward? A sweeping descent all the way back into Bormio, completing a challenging yet exhilarating day in the saddle.
