Another long drag up to Perticara building on the back of Tiffi and then you drop before starting the big one - Monte Pugliano.
This is steep to start with - and coming off a lefthand turning climbs immediately. It then "levels" off to 5 - 8% but goes on forever (or 10km). You climb towards a village called Maiolo for ages and then face loads more after that.
The 8th hill isn't much - and you'll be glad for that. But the final hill, Gorolo is tough - not least because you have jelly for leg muscles by now. Not quite as steep as they claim (17% but more like 14 on my Garmin).
