Road Cycling Highlight
The Sella Pass is the most spectacular and the most demanding, the one that offers us the best view of the mountain range, also because it is beaten by the morning sun. In reality, the first six kilometers are on a shady and not very scenic road. Then, after turning left at the Sella / Pordoi junction, we begin to see the illuminated mountain. We face the most demanding climb of the Sellaronda and reach the highest point of the route.
Almost 800 meters of elevation gain on about 11 kilometers of ascent. Average gradient around 7%, maximum 11%. In the end we will not remember these data, but the breathtaking views, the blue sky that stands out above the gigantic rock towers and the sense of conquest we felt by reaching the pass with our strength, admired by the multitude of tourists who arrived by motorbike. or car. The descent towards the crossroads for Selva di Val Gardena is also spectacular and forces us to stop a couple of times to take some pictures.
