    A stage that required mountain bikes

    Hey guys,

    I'm trying to remember which race it was when they descended an unpaved road, that many riders switched to mountain bikes on the summit. I can't remember if it's the Giro or the Tour, or what year it was. Thanks!

    There was a stage in the Giro, like, two years ago, that ended with an unpaved section but I don't recall anyone switching to mountain bikes...seems like that would be forbidden. They definitely had wheels and gearing suitable for it but MTBs? I can't imagine so.

    That's the strade bianche, but I'm not talking about that.
