The Mortirolo and the Stelvio are two of the most beautiful climbs in the world that echo with the feats of Fausto Coppi and Marco Pantani. During the Giro d’Italia 2012, a single stage saw the peloton take on both of these legendary climbs for one of the most brutal days of the race. Now for the sixth time, the Grandondo Stelvio Santini will allow you to pit yourself against these legendary climbs and follow in the pedal strokes of some of the greatest icons cycling has ever known.
