Re: Contest #6 - Giro Upside Down

After i watched all of those Giros and I tried to do one by myself, I understand why thare have been so few Upside Down Giros..simply not many viable steep climbs under Tuscany and Marche... :cry2: There are a fair few actually (not less than Spain) They are just hard to find on the editor (you hav...

Re: Contest #4 - Voting

I had some doubts about even voting for this contest. I feel like a lot of people didn’t even try (or simply forgot?) to follow all the rules that were laid out for this contest (18 Merckx-victories, 23 days of racing etc.)... And my personal opinion is that if you don’t follow these rules, I can’t...

Re: Contest #4 - The Merckxian Grand Tour

The 1973 stage did not finish on the top of Monte Carpegna (though the name of stage said so), but in the village of Carpegna; the 1970 stage in Brentonico had Cima Polsa as last climb before downhill.

I would remember Italian newspaper "l'Unità" and Spaniard "El Mundo Deportivo" have online their complete archives: they can help you with profiles and news about stages and races.

Is it possibile if you do Mont-Blanc tunnel (are you sure they didn't it in 1973)?. You have...

Re: Tour Preparation Races - Voting

Many wrong tracks with too many too hard mountain stages: everyone would have liked, in a country like Switzerland, to climb Everest at every stage, but that was not what requested for contest. I found three tracks very near for places from 6 to 4 and other three very near for places from 3 to 1. In...

Re: Giro d'Italia 2018 - Voting

FIFTH PLACE: Bomby Good route, but the inclusion of that amount of Strade makes the route more risky for flat tires for GC riders. FOURTH PLACE: Taaramae_crack Very well made, but total route length is a bit on the lower side. 2 long ITT's though. THIRD PLACE: Pincoletto Beautiful route, just a lac...

has been proposed at Giro 1995 a similar route on track with Fluelapass, on Senales-Lenzerheide stage
1995 stage had not Mortirolo, nor Stelvio, nor Gavia!

Re: Giro preparation races (Cat. 3) - Voting

I watched carefully the tracks. I excluded tracks: in dangerous countries, in countries or part of countries too distant from Italy (Norway is too cold for a stage race in april), in countries with not at all tradition in bicycle (like Greece: the start of Giro in 1996 was a disaster), with no high ...

Re: Giro d'Italia 2018 - Voting

Molti bei percorsi, alla fine ho scartato i Giri che: prevedevano spostamenti aerei (se non l'ultimo giorno per la tappa finale) oltre a quello da Israele, prevedevano troppi o troppi pochi km a cronometro, prevedevano la cronometro troppo lontana dall'ultima tappa, prevedevano una lunga cronometro ...
