This is a wonderful climb, not too steep, ascending well-engineered tornanti through a deserted, silent forest with huge cliffs looming above. At the top (1080m) it was windy, and being wet I quickly got cold. Quickly pulled on my mantellino and headed down. The Viner is descending better and better (or I'm getting used to it). From Mangon I rode home fast as I could, with a fortunate tailwind from Cavasso Nuovo to home. My friend Silvano was visiting and saw my new bike for the first time- he liked it.
