Col Visentin

At the top of the long climb from Longhere to Pian dei Grassi another climb starts- Col Visentin.  It used to be all gravel but now the first 2 or 3 km are paved.  After that it's MTB only.  Unless you try to see if you can road bike it, like me.  I had tried last fall on 25 mm tires and didn't fare too well.  Today with 28mm slicks it was the same deal.  I rode maybe a third of the gravel and walked the rest.  Anyway it was a beautiful day and I got a killer workout.  Quite nippy on the descent but at Vittorio Veneto it was sunny and hot as ever.  A classic.
