Safety nets & mattresses...
This Saturday may just be one of THE challenging mountainous stage in this Giro. Four passes before going up the dreaded Zoncolan a total of 210 kilometers. Organizers will introduce the Monte Crostis with a tricky descent.
Race director, Angelo Zomegnan has said the Monte Crostis descent will go as schedule despite the meeting with some of the major riders including; Contador, Nibali, Millar, Cioni & Scarponi.
Contador previewed the climb last month and grimly said, "The drops there are tremendous. All I know is that even in a car, the descent puts your hair on end. I only hope nothing unfortunate happens that day. I am glad to have seen it, just to be able to get ready for it in my mind. But if it's raining or snowing... I don't even want to think about it."
Here's a video from Podiumcafe.com that reveals a very dangerous ....hair raising ride down!
