Knitting on top of the world

At Plan di Corones (2,275 metres) to be exact. In the Dolomites.
The occasion: the uphill time trial of the Italian Bike Race.
We came up by cablecar and our only hardship was putting up with the boiling sun.

The bikers came up the hard way, reaching a peak of 24% on a hardcore road.
Arroyov in the pink jersey.
Garzelli won and Evans came second.
The rest of the time the car did all the climbing. If you sum up 4 mountain passes, up and down, we could have done Everest.
Passo Falzarego

Passo Fedaia underneath Marmolada, the highest peak in the dolomites
