Moena-Pradazzo–Cavalese-Passo Lavaze’

4 days of rest and recuperation and it’s time to test the legs again, although perhaps I chose a test too far! On the profile below red indicates a 10% climb or worse and in this climb it was worse!  Just like  x rays, these profiles are really a shadow of the truth  and here the red is telling porkies and should actually extend  almost to the top. Also  I  saw 14% on my garmin, so maybe the next worse colour should hae been present too…and yes I was still on the bike at the time of the 14% and no I wasn’t hallucinating.

Later on I struggled and had to walk a short while as I just couldn’t keep going without a rest.

profile of the 10km climb red -tough
doesn't look very hard does it!
Proof I was there and able to take a photo!
It was grey and cold up on top, but very pleasant lower down.

Good to know we (Aussies) are included but actually it was an invite for motor cyclists not us,

On the way up I paused to take these pix in Cavalese:
