The sun of September peaks through the ancient arcs, as one of the oldest Italian races shows who has the form for Worlds. The Giro dell'Emilia is also one of the most difficult Italian races because of the last 4 climbs to the Santuario di San Luca, a church that is on the top of a hill in the hinterland of Bologna, the city of the oldest Italian university.
This climb would be at home at a Spring Classic, with a 10% average over 2.3 km, and parts at over 18%! Of course here is where your legs feel like lead and the winning moves are made. And here is where, on Sunday, Casagrande was the strongest, and Basso the only one to go with him.
