The Civiglio pass will be the last ascent of the Gran Fondo Il Lombardia.
A climb that is not impossible, but which happen to be after more than 100 km of racing and after the ascents of the Ghisallo and of the Muro di Sormano.
It is considered one of the toughest in the surroundings of Como, with a gradient that never goes under 8% and in the most difficult sections goes over 14%. No possibility to take a breath with flat or downhill sections: just riding uphill.
Four kilometers to reach the 613 mt of the Civiglio Pass, followed by a downhill which is as difficult as the ascent.
