September 12th, 2000: Roberto Heras destroys the Angliru!

          It all started with a wild pace set by Kelme's great mountain domestique, Chechu Rubiera. They didn't even reach Viapará and the other mountain goat dressed in white and green, Escartin, with the leader Heras in his wheel, flew away from everybody. Robertito's decisive attack though, came on the first 20% ramps of Les Cabanes. Up to the finish line, the golden jersey wearer kept sprinting out of the saddle with tremendous ease. The beautiful ascent will make Roberto Heras the winner of the 2000 Vuelta a Espana. It remains the fastest ever ascent of the Angliru. By far. Una auténtica barbaridad...

June 7th, 1996: Passo Pordoi meets Enrico Zaina


        A brutal stage of 221 kilometers at the end of the Giro, Marmolada ridden at huge speed as penultimate climb of the stage and a tough as nails chasing group comprising Tonkov, Ugrumov, Gotti and Olano. None of these things could slow down il bresciano Enrico Zaina in his quest of winning on the Pordoi and getting on the final podium in Milano. As a bonus, the great rider of Carrera would set the fastest ever ascent of Passo Pordoi.

1996:11,3 km@6,8%---28:52---average speed 23.49 km/h(Enrico Zaina)-RECORD
