We are always on the look out for new climbs here and today I drove out to the base of the Col du Moncenis in Italy. The 2 hour drive to Sousa at the base of the climb was met with warm weather (for October !) I tackled the 26km climb from the south back into France. At over 1600 metres of climbing its definitely in the hors category and will make a great challenge for the Giro d’Italia in 2013 before it hits the Col du Galibier. Unfortunately the clouds came rolling in at the summit so I was unable to see much of the surrounding mountainside.
