VIDEO: This is how the clear the Snow from Stelvio ahead of the cycling season

One of the most iconic and toughest climbs in Europe that features 48 hairpin bends is cleared of snow using explosions to start an Avalanche

Whatever way you look at it, the Stelvio is a spiritual cycling experience like no other. First featuring in the Giro d’Italia in 1953 its long history and sky high credentials make it a mountain of legend and unique lure for every rider that dares to tackle its serpentine slopes.

Not only is it the highest road pass in Italy at 2,758 metres above sea level but it’s also the highest finish of any Grand Tour stage. That aside, it’s the architecture of the climb that really makes it famous and sets it apart from the rest. Bend after bend with a relentless gradient, jaw dropping waterfalls free-falling on a non-stop trajectory towards the valley below and a vast expanse of mountain mystique the higher you climb.

That’s the real beauty of the mighty Stelvio, a true test of physical and mental strength all the way to the summit.

The climb is used regularly in the Giro d'Italia and every year thousands of cyclists tackle it in the Gran Fondo Stelvio.
