The climb from Farra d’Alpago through Valdonegher to Tambre and Spert is a killer. The fantastic views keep your mind off of the pain, but still you must suffer. I’m not in form yet this year and I paid the price: even after resting on the long descent from Il Cansiglio I still had no energy in the tank. Despite guzzling another bottle of Gatorade I remained in limp home mode all the way back to Giais. Must try again next year.
