One could argue that the Portella Mandrazi adds up to 40 kilometres. Or, for that matters that’s it’s 15 kilometres long. It just depends where you decide that the gradients are hard enough. The Portella Mandrazi is a false flat that’s getting gradually steeper until the summit at 1,125 metres above sea level.

Remarkably, two years ago the same climb was labeled category 3.

Portella Mandrazi
– 20 kilometres at 4%
– at kilometre 75.3
– category 2

1. Mirco Maestri 18
2. Mattia Bais 8
3. Jaakko Hänninen 6
4. Alessandro Tonelli 4
5. Filippo Tagliani 2
6. Lennard Kämna 1
