The Strada Cocciari Becomes Legendary

strada Cocciari, in Sant’Elpidio a Mare (Fermo), terrorized the professionals on Monday during Stage 6 of Tirreno-Adriatico and entered into racing history. Some of the pros were reduced to walking and others rode at a pace slower than an old man walking with a cane. Now, it has become legendary and a spot that all lovers of two wheels will have to visit to challenge themselves.

  1. Years ago we offered a tour in Umbria and Le Marche, sampling some of those STEEP climbs they have east of Todi to the sea. They are amazingly steep in places - we hope RCS doesn't do away with them because of riders whining they're too hard. Spectacle is what pro racing is about!
