I have been getting Beardy McBeard's daily glorious photo updates on the Giro d'Italia. It was fun to see the photos of the individual time trial go down a road in Tuscany that I traveled many times during a week there last summer. And it is even more fun now to see Saturday's Stage 14 as the Giro entered the high Dolomites, with 4700 meters of elevation gain while going over Passo Pordoi, Passo Sella and Passo Gardena ... as we did last summer on Stage 4 of the amateur Giro delle Dolomiti.
I want to go back!
*The pros add Passo Giau and Passo Valparolo on at the end to get to 4700 meters elevation gain. We had maybe 3250 (?) meters if memory servers.
