A climb for the likes of Vincenzo Nibali. It was on this climb, the Sega di Ala, that the Sicilian champion took the stage victory and first place in the final standings of the Giro del Trentino in 2013.

Safety information

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions.

Destination

Sega di Ala

Turn-by-turn directions

A climb for pure climbers, but that gives intense thrills to any daring cyclist. The difference in height slightly exceeds 1000 metres, a measure that over the span of 11 and a half kilometres calls for moderation. The average slope is 9 percent, but in certain stretches it reaches 22%. The Sega di Ala, however, is one of those climbs that simply have to be on the list of every cyclist.

It starts from the Sdruzzinà hamlet with the first 500 metres that are just what you need to warm up the legs. Afterwards, the climb gets serious, but if you’re wise and pace yourself, you can even breathe. The first effort takes about 6 km, followed by a stretch of 500 meters to catch your breath. Then it's back to climbing hard for another 3 kilometres. These are definitely the hardest, but it pays not to give up, because, after having cycled close to the rock and breathed the resin of woods, you arrive in the midst of meadows and dairy huts. It's the Lessinia plateau, where the cyclist is immersed in an atmosphere rich in peasant traditions, flavours and history. The Sega di Ala, in fact, used to be a border zone; continuing on the road after about 3 km you arrive at Passo delle Fittanze that connects Trentino to Veneto. At the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, this was a place of smuggling. Then, in 1918, with the annexation of Trentino to Italy, the custom died out. Just like your stamina may if you pedal too hard.
