Cattolica-Cippo di Carpegna

Den + 2850m

140 km

The worthy of a stage of the Giro Queen stage, with climbing of the terrible Cippo di Carpegna and its slopes of 22%! But first, we have to have climbed San Leo. Forgetting the slopes, Carpegna is also one of the most beautiful places of raw ham, an inimitable flavor! He should keep some forces to return by road to the Marechiese.
