Welcome to our guide to the Cortina d'Ampezzo - Passo Valparola augmented route on Rouvy. Please read on to see details and photographs on the route, route profiles, and our own ride data on this route.
The Cortina d'Ampezzo - Passo Valparola AR Rouvy route is the second route we have completed up the Passo Valparola, in Rouvy Career mode 19/20 this course is a mandatory course to progress from Regional Level. The route unsurprising starts at Cortina d'Ampezzo, climbing past archetypal alpine cabins all the way to Pocol, before climbing up and over the Passo Falzarengo before joining the road from Cernadoi followed by the first route. The route then climbs up through a steep walled and dark ravine to the Passo Valparola, before dropping to the finish at the Rifugio.
The route itself is a fairly consistent 4-5% climb pretty much from there off, with only a couple of areas where the route plateaus off to provide a little respite. The scenery is sublime on this route - snow capped dolomite big walls surround the route at each turn.
The video is a Rouvy AR video, so is filmed in HD, and the picture is stable. This one unusually disappoints a little. The route is filmed in winter at sunrise, so there is much sun bleaching throughout.
