Found it very heavy. That was mainly because of the steep part in the village. But I also didn't have the right gears. I started from Ile Rousse. And indeed, the views at the top are beautiful. Water source on the way, it was hot.... read more

Vond hem erg zwaar. Dat kwam vooral door dat steile stuk in het dorp. Maar ik had ook niet de juiste verzetten. Ben gestart vanaf Ile Rousse. En inderdaad, de uitzichten boven zijn prachtig. Waterbron onderweg, het was warm.

This version of the Battaglia which starts from Nessa starts with a good warm-up over the first few kilometres, but then turns right at the church where there is a stretch of 350 metres at 15% average. Standing on the pedals, it only gets serious from here on. The last 5 km continue at almost 10% average to the top, which makes it a pretty tough climb. Every km, a sign tells you what the next km will be in terms of gradient. The road surface is rather poor, but the views are beautiful! Along the way some stray cows, on top is a restaurant for a well deserved coke or beer.

Deze variant van de Battaglia die vanuit Nessa start begint met een goede opwarmer over de eerste paar kilometer, maar maakt dan bij het kerkje een bocht naar rechts waar een stuk van 350 meter à 15% gemiddeld ligt. Grotendeels staand op de pedalen begint het vanaf hier eigenlijk pas serieus. De laatste 5 km gaan aan bijna 10% gemiddeld door tot aan de top, wat het tot een vrij zware klim maakt. Iedere km word je met een bordje op de hoogte gehouden hoe de volgende km qua stijgingspercentage eruit ziet. Het wegdek is vrij matig, maar de uitzichten zijn prachtig! Onderweg wat verdwaalde koeien, bovenop zit een restaurantje voor een welverdiende cola of bier.
