Today I did this climb in a circuit Bormio, Tirono, Livingo, Eira, Foscagno. Don't be mistaken about the heaviness of the climb. It has more height meters than the Stelvio. You have only more kilometres but there are also 8 almost flat. From Tirono you ride directly into the sun to the lake, it is not yet really steep but it was warm. At the lake it goes down a little and then up again so you can cool off. In the beginning there is a train riding along the road in a few villages on rails. So watch out that you do not get stuck in these rails. In the valley after that, it remains fairly flat. After that, it goes up constantly by 8%. You drive there in the morning in the shade of the trees. It is a through road, so it is wide and has good tarmac. The traffic was not too bad for a through road. It makes you wonder if it will ever end. In the section before Motta, there are a few bends in the road and it is really steeper than indicated here. (9%)
At the junction to Livigno, it goes downhill at first, but don't put on an extra jacket yet. The steepest part is still to come. It is steep there and after 30Km of climbing you will feel it. There are parts of 11% in it. At the top, there are border offices and a restaurant.

Vandaag deze klim gedaan in een rondje Bormio, Tirono, Livingo, Eira, Foscagno. Vergis je niet in de zwaarte van de klim. Hij heeft meer hoogte meters als de Stelvio. Je hebt er alleen meer kilometers voor maar daar zijn er ook 8 bijna vlak van. Vanuit Tirono rij je pal in de zon naar het meer, het is daar nog niet echt steil maar het was wel warm. Bij het meer gaat het iets naar beneden en weer omhoog zodat je lekker af kan koelen. In het beginstuk rijd er een trein langs de weg die in een paar dorpjes op rails over de weg rijdt. Pas dus goed op deze rails dat je er niet in blijft haken. In het dal daarna blijft het vrij vlak. Daarna gaat constant zo een 8% omhoog. Je rijd daar 's morgens in de schaduw van de bomen. Het is een doorgaande weg, dus breed en goed asfalt. De drukte viel me mee voor een doorgaande weg. Daardoor kan je je gaan afvragen of er ooit een eind aan komt. Bij het stuk voor Motta zitten er een paar bochten in de weg en is het toch echt steiler als hier in het staatje is aangegeven. (9%)
Bij de splitsing naar Livigno gaat het eerst naar beneden maar doe nog geen extra jasje aan. Het steilste stuk komt nog. het is daar stijl en na 30Km klimmen ga je dat voelen. Er zitten stukken van 11% in. Op de top zijn grenskantoren te vinden en er is een restaurantje te vinden.

Salendo da Tirano, si fa quasi tutto il Bernina e si devia sulla destra, dove c'è la dogana. Bel giro da fare col Bernina, salendo fino al passo e poi tornando indietro un pezzetto, e poi fino a Bormio da Livigino, facendo Trepalle e Passo Eira

Cheers
