Mythical climb for all cyclists in the area since the days when the great Eddy Merckx had a crisis there and lost the Giro D’Italia, it has attained a new lustre thanks to Cesenatico’s greatest climber of all time. Indeed, the Pirate loved to sum up his climbing training methods by saying, “ll Carpegna mi basta” – “Carpegna is enough”. He needed only to train on this legendary and difficult peak to go and conquer the Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France in the same season.
