Col Alto

First big climb of the year, and a chance to try out some changes I made to the Viner Maxima.  After a brief flat warm up, I turned upward at Pedemonte (155m).  I climbed seated except for the extra-steep 14-15% section below Bornass.  At Castaldia (1100m) I turned onto the mountain lane for Col Alto.  Beautiful alpine meadows in the warm March sun.  I definitely felt rusty- haven't been climbing enough lately.

The descent was fast and fun.  The 11-tooth cog was great- never ran out of gear between tornanti.
