    Anyone ride Zoncolan with Simoni?

    From what I can tell (not too good at Italian) this happened on August 23, but Simoni rode up Zoncolan for free with whomever wanted to try! I wish I was in Italy. Imagine riding up that mountain with, likely, the best to ever climb it (he's won both times they've ridden it).

    2 VOLTE ZONCOLAN

    Giovedì 23 Agosto verrà inaugurata la gigantografia di Gilberto Simoni in cima allo Zoncolan; Per l’occasione ci ritroveremo a Ovaro e con le nostre forze e le nostre bici scaleremo la cima del Monte Zoncolan per una festa dedicata alle due vittorie di Gibo sullo Zoncolan.

    PROGRAMMA:
    Ore 11.00 circa arrivo a Ovaro ai piedi della salita - versante Giro 2007 – i più volenterosi potranno salire in bicicletta assieme a Gibo, gli altri attenderanno i corridori in cima alla salita per pranzare tutti assieme.
    Ore 16.00 Inaugurazione della Gigantografia in cima al Monte Zoncolan
    Ore 17.30 Ritrovo al Teatro l’Alpina – località Comeglians – per la proiezione del filmato dedicato alla tappa e susseguente presentazione del libro fotografico dedicato a questa salita.

    Partecipazione libera a tutti, ciclisti e non.
    So...anyone here ride it?

    There's only about 10 riders on the whole planet capable of riding up the Zoncolan with Gibo.

    Looks like it was raining.




    I don't think many people rode it with him.

    You went? Did you ride up it? What was your time? did you get to take pics with him or was it more of a presentation?

    I could be wrong, but I think he was joking, judging by his username...

    Hmmm, I wonder what Basso was doing that day?...
    The rider in my avatar is David Etxebarria, not me.
