Zoncolan – And It’s Steep As Well

Great comeback by Chris Froome at the Giro today beating both the man with the stuffed fox and the dinosaur to win the stage.

The leading cyclists climbing a very steep hill at the Giro d'Italia have to contend with fans running along side them.

The Zoncolan averages 11.9% over its 10.1km length, with a maximum gradient of 22%. The Tour de France’s better-known Alpe d’Huez averages 8%, with a maximum of 12%, while Mont Ventoux is far longer at 21.5km but averaging just over 7%.
