What's Cool In Road Cycling

Taking On The Feared Zoncolan Climb With Ryder Hesjedal

With the 101st Giro d’Italia aimed straight at the feared Monte Zoncolan climb for the Stage 14 finish at the summit, it’s a great time to enjoy the climb from the comfort of your own mobile device, and watch someone else do the suffering while climbing this beast. Castelli convinced 2012 Giro winner Ryder Hesjedal to ride it one more time (for fun?) and between gasps for breath, share his memories of racing here.

They’ve also released a cool limited edition jersey honouring this climb, which is located not far from their headquarters in North eastern Italy.

Let’s watch the fun…

As the official jersey sponsor of the Giro, Castelli has created a line of jerseys that will wear well long after this race is over…
