|Riders zig-zag up the hillside|
This leads to another long drop, and now you have entered the lower vineyards and a series of 6 sharp, short climbs over hillsides covered with vines.
Shortly after this you start back up the big drop you came down much earlier and then through picturesque Rolle. Eventually you get back up to 400m via some more 19%.
Soon you are back on tarmac and take in a couple of final slopes (second one goes past our trip accommodation) before making it back to Valdobbiadene and through the start gate to finish in the main square.
The usual pasta party is at a posh villa a little bit further on and has a secure bike park for piece of mind whilst you fill up.
