Day Five of the Transalp

Cold and light rain in the morning at the start in Livigno but later on good weather all the way. Apart from the usual no-name hills, we climbed the Mortirolo, the third most famous cycling pass in the alps aftet the Stelvio and the Gavia.

1200+m climbing, many long stretches with 20 percent gradient.  David got up in one go; I needed to walk about 300m up. It has been a long time since I walked up hills, but the Transalp is teaching me these skills again. I am not as strong as I used to be in Japan, but that’s OK, I don’t really need this ability any longer in Bremen. Still I know that I can finish the Transalp – ca suffit.

After the descent from the Mortirolo another 14km flat or slightly uphill. Still had something left in the battery and hammered towards the finish. Overall a good and successful day.  No photos.
