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.
