Pinarello Granfondo

video length 7:34min

Bruce Reyneke and Jack Manzavinos participated

A few ASG MTB Club members travelled to Italy, and competed in the Pinarello Granfondo.
It was a ‘measly’ 175km, and about 3000 – 4000m of climbing (reports conflict,
Google Earth varies, and the hills were so vertical that satellite reception on our
Garmins was lost as we climbed, so jury is still out on the total climb…?). The weather
started off sunny and warm (read, “we packed no warm or weather-proof clothing!”),
but as we climbed the first major climb, we could hear a thunderstorm brewing at the top
of the mountain! (it was a different climate completely up there). The ascent was torturous,
as it was so steep one could not sit down and pedal, but had to stand just about all the way.
By the time we reached the top, a full-blown storm was raging, with torrential rain and even
some hail thrown in for good measure. The decent was, needless to say, slippery and freezing
cold, with us all being drenched (plastic bags pulled out of rubbish bins and shoved down our
shirts did little to help, unfortunately). Punctures abounded, and a few tumbles on the wet
surfaces were experienced (yours truly included! Blush…), but we all made it back safely.
A brilliant experience, and the closest any of us will ever come to riding “The Tour”
