Climb the highest mountain of the Giro 2015

Reach the Cima Coppi, the highest mountaintop of the Giro d’Italia 2015. After 7 kilometres of flat roads towards Susa, the real climb starts quite suddenly and features the steepest parts in the beginning. After this climb, there is hardly time for you to catch your breath and there is still 18 kilometre to go before you reach the top. The last 8 kilometres of the Colle delle Finestre (2178m) are made up of difficult, unpaved roads that are reminiscent of the early days of bicycle racing. These last few kilometres are also the most spectacular kilometres of the Tacx collection thanks to the hazel trees that show their beautiful colours one last time in the autumn of 2014.
