Neither does Cunego: On Christmas Eve, "Il Piccolo Principe" rode for five and a half hours (160 km), near Lago di Garda; on Christmas Day, he spent one hour in the saddle; and on Santo Stefano, December 26, he rode for two and a half hours.
Regarding Christmas day, Cunego said, "The temperature was beautiful and it would have been a shame to miss an occasion like that."
Basso's 'base training': "Four hours on Christmas Eve day and on Santo Stefano, when I went to Campo del Fiori, the longest climb I do in this time of the year." From Varese, Campo dei Fiori is a 13.6 kilometre climb that averages 6.1% gradient and rises 832 metres.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled thread.
