Good article on whether this climb should have been included or not.

Quote:
The irregular and slippery nature of yesterday’s climb guarantees that Porto Sant’ Elpidio remains part of the sport’s legend and it stands out because the sight of riders pushing their bikes uphill is such a rarity.

Was it too much? There’s no right and wrong here. The race would have been different if the roads had been dry.
