Stage 5, Passo di Stelvio Ascent

Determined to make up for yesterdays ignomy on the Mortirolo, the intrepid rider started strong on the 5000 plus foot ascent of the Stelvio from the Bormio side. This side has 40 switchbacks, compared to 48 on the other "classic side". Our schedule today included the short section, climbing one way, and the long ride, which would wind down into Switzerland after the first climb and then do the 48 switchback version, i,e. Stelvio in both directions.....
