S8 Ep156: Kilometre 0 – Italy's other mountains

The Cycling Podcast

Stretching over 1200 kilometres, from the knee of Italy’s boot to the tip of its toe, the Apennines are ‘il Bel Paese’s’ defining geographical feature - & yet many would struggle to point to them on a map. Similarly, the range’s place in Giro folklore is underplayed or even ignored, despite glorious dramas on fearsome climbs like Blockhaus, Monte Carpegna, San Pellegrino in Alpe & l’Abetone.  With the dual threats of Covid & an autumn freeze looming over the Alps & Dolomites, could the Apennines of the Giro’s second week become the race’s kingmakers - & finally bring Italy’s ‘other’ mountains some overdue recognition?
