The slightly lesser known side of the Pordoi, but almost as nice to climb. Again, a smooth climb with long stretches of 7-8% and flattening turns. The big difference with the climb from Arabba is the forest during most of the climb, which means more shade and less views. Perfect to combine with... read more

The slightly lesser known side of the Pordoi, but almost as nice to climb. Again, a smooth climb with long stretches of 7-8% and flattening turns. The big difference with the climb from Arabba is the forest during most of the climb, which means more shade and less views.

Perfect to combine with the ascent of the east face of the Fedaia.

De iets minder bekende kant van de Pordoi, maar bijna net zo mooi om te beklimmen. Ook hier een goedlopende klim met lange stukken 7-8% en afvlakkende bochten. Groot verschil met de beklimming vanuit Arabba is de bebossing gedurende het grootste deel van de klim, waardoor er meer schaduw en minder uitzicht is.

Perfect te combineren met de beklimming van de oostkant van de Fedaia.

In 2017 did the Pordoi from Arabba; like cycling in an arena. Now from Canazei with a departure from Predazzo; ergo 40 kilometres uphill before you reach the top!
Also this side is beautiful and leaves together with the climb to the Passo Sella. He "runs" nice and it is nowhere really steep. The views remain phenomenal and once at the top you can enjoy the huge rocks around you.

In 2017 de Pordoi vanuit Arabba gedaan; alsof je in een arena fietst. Nu vanaf Canazei met een vertrek vanuit Predazzo; ergo 40 kilometer bergop voordat je op de top bent!
Ook deze kant is mooi en gaat vertrekt samen met de klim naar de Passo Sella. Hij "loopt" lekker en het wordt nergens echt steil. De uitzichten blijven fenomenaal en eenmaal boven is het genieten van de enorme rotspartijen om je heen.

Pordoï pass already climbed twice and especially remembered as the first climb of the famous Sella ronda (counter clockwise).
If you start this classic tour down in the tourist Canazei you "full " Passo Pordoï that incidentally until hairpin bend 14 is parallel with the Sella climb. After the junction you pass between the pines, at the height of the solitary beautifully situated Sporthotel Bellavista, the cable car station of Pecol.
The whole climb has good tarmac and is a steady uphill without extremes with to the end 8 short hairpin bends that bring you above the tree line with panoramic views of the Sella and Marmolada massif.
Summit is very touristy and motley collection of cafes, hotels, parking lots, souvenir shops, and large cable car station.
The bronze memorial plaque to Fausto Coppi and the racing bike monument to Gilberto Simoni emphasize the importance of this climb in the Giro d'Italia.
In summer there can be very busy traffic with especially annoying coaches both up and down. Sella lap is also an excursion topper by bus. Early start is the message!
At another starting point of the Sella Ronda you come down from the Passo Sella to the left the last 7 km of the climb to pick.

Beautiful "easy"climbing side to the top which was the roof (Cima Coppi) of the Tour of Italy several times!

Pordoïpas reeds tweemaal beklommen en vooral bijgebleven als eerste klim van de bekende Sella ronda (tegenwijzerszin).
Als je deze rondrit klassieker beneden start in het toeristische Canazei fiets je de "volledige" Passo Pordoï die trouwens tot haarspeldbocht 14 gelijklopend is met de Sellaklim. Na de splitsing passeer je tussen de dennebomen, ter hoogte van het eenzaam prachtig gelegen Sporthotel Bellavista, het kabelbaanstation van Pecol.
Heel de klim heeft prima asfalt en is gelijklopend bergop zonder extremen met naar het einde toe 8 kort op elkaar volgende haarspeldbochten die je boven de boomgrens brengen met panoramische uitzichten op het Sella- en Marmoladamassief.
Top is erg toeristisch en bonte verzameling van cafés, hotels, parkings, souvenirshops, en groot kabelbaanstation.
De bronzen gedenkplaat voor Fausto Coppi en het koersfietsmonument voor Gilberto Simoni benadrukken het belang van deze klim in de Giro d'Italia.
Zomers kan er erg druk verkeer zijn met vooral hinderlijke autocars zowel bergop als af. Sella ronde is ook een excursie topper per bus. Vroeg starten is de boodschap!
Bij een ander startplaats van de Sella Ronda kom je dalend van de Passo Sella om links de laatste 7 km van de klim mee te pikken.

Mooie "gemakkelijke" klimzijde naar de top die meermaals het dak (Cima Coppi) van de Ronde van Italië was!
