Intense Training

After the Palermo team time trial of and the first part to Agrigento, there is also the Catania-Milazzo third stage, which ends the three Sicilian days of the 2008 Giro d’Italia.  The toughest section of the stage that goes around the Etna massif is proposed here, going from Paternò to the town of Randazzo. 55 km of deep valleys with never a section of plain. After a very brief downhill section on apparently flat ground we immediate start going up, to tackle the climb leading to the gran premio della montagna of Maletto at 1017 m asl. The climb continues for about 30 km with mild slopes, of an average 1.9%, and a short stretch at 8%only in the hardest part. A smooth climb enabling a high pedalling rate to be sustained; and ideal for exercising the legs and lungs.  Once out of the hills, the short descent towards Randazzo will lead us to the finish line for the day.
