A wonderful climb to Passo di Fedaia (2057m), ascending along Torrente Pettorina, up beautiful slopes and onto the shoulders of Monte Marmolada. Peter Stetina, Garmin-Barracuda, rode and completed his first ever Grand Tour in 2011, Giro d’Italia. He not only made it through what was without question the most difficult Grand Tour in recent memory, but he managed an impressive 22nd place overall.
