Ah, Dolomiti, such a cool area and experience, enjoy it!
Thanks mate! Looking forward to it although I'll probs have to slog it out..
That’s part of the fun... I “trained” for that in The Netherlands, so was certainly underdone on hill training. There are some very vertical ascent and descent sections and the last up was really a matter of one foot at a time for me. But super scenic and the little town and surrounds also make for an awesome experience.
