The road that leads to Polsa di Brentonico starts out from Mori, the birth-town of Alessandro Bertolini, a cycling champion who among his many triumphs, won the Italian champ jersey in the derny bike category on the hometown velodrome in 2010. The crossroads to Polsa lies outside the town on the left, on the road that leads to Lake Garda, the kingdom of the wind for sailors from all over the world. The average slope is not too steep, but you need to factor the length of nearly 19 kilometres.

Destination

Polsa

Turn-by-turn directions

That’s something the cyclists who participated in the time trial of the Giro d’Italia in 2013 know very well. Vincenzo Nibali set the fastest time and ended up winning the Giro. It's a climb that should be divided into two stages. The first of 9 kilometres leads to Brentonico. The slopes are not too steep and range from 6 to 8%. But you need to be careful not to burn up too much energy. Arrived in town the road continues for about 4 kilometres with borderline stretches: short descents and then sudden jolts. At the entrance of the hamlet of Prada you start to climb again. It's the hardest stretch, with slopes that after 3 kilometers become really challenging (the climb here reaches 10%). The final stretch too, is no joke: the road leaves no room for breaks, despite a few hairpin turns allowing you to catch your breath. The effort ends at Polsa, a site on Monte Baldo that in winter becomes a pleasant ski resort. From here too, itineraries are available for tourists to discover the Austro-Hungarian fortifications, remnants of the Great War along the southernmost border of the Danubian Empire.
