About the ride

You will start in Bormio where you will finish the day as well after you have climbed Mortirolo via the village Mazzo di Valtellina.

There are three routes up the Passo di Mortirolo (1.852m), but the fearsome ascent from Mazzo di Valtellina is claimed to be the ‘official’ route. After you have climbed the Mortiroilo from this side everything seems to be flat.

Whenever you’re ready you can easily kickoff by downloading this ride, but don’t miss out on the other GPX rides made available via our page.

The heaviest part of the climb begins at kilometer three and continues for about five kilometers. Here you will find short pieces that hit gradients of 20%, with averages per kilometer of more than 15%. Once you reach the Pantani Monument, it does get easier. This is after 8 kilometer!

Nice to know, Marco Pantini was riding 39×22 at the Giro d’Italia of 1994

At the end of the day you didn’t even ride above the 100 kilometers, it’s actually just over the eighty, but you will gain close to 3.000 meters of elevation. That is what you get when ride one of the hardest, yet most rewarding climbs in the region.
