    Ride opens for attempts at midnight 25th March 2019, and closes on Midnight on the 19th May 2019, ride must be completed within that window for it to count otherwise you get the time of the slowest rider plus 5%.

    Making many appearances in the Giro, probably the most famous was in 2018, when Chris Froome "Did a Landis" and attacked the peloton on this climb with over 100Km left in the stage (and another two climbs, the Colle Sestrierre and the summit finish of Monte Jafferau :eek:), Taking the Cima Coppi as first over the highest point of the 101st Giro de Italia. For you lucky riders you only have to complete the 13.64Km and 771m of the Ascent of the Colle delle Finestre. A nice 2Km lead before you hit the first challenge 5Km of reasonable gradient, a 1Km false flat, and then we bring the pain, push harder for the summit!!

    That was a much nicer ride than the American ones, stunning scenery, interesting road, good chance of plummeting to a tumbling mountainside death, beautiful stone bridge, donkeys and a landslide too. What more could you ask for?

    53:24 please @Aleman

    So after a few weeks off the bike I'm back and ready for more torture!

    Well the scenery was great but my lungs and legs didn't really appreciate it, don't know why, I kept telling them it was lovely :biggrin:

    56.02 for me @Aleman.

    That was an interesting one to pace. I think I did well by taking a breather on the flat parts and then going strong, a bit above treshold on the steeper parts. 40:23 for me please, @Aleman
