The Gavia and Stelvio are two of Europe's most celebrated climbs. They're also possibly the most difficult to manage, a pair of unruly granite hammers whose impacts fall outside of the immediate event, punishing race organizers almost as much as the riders. Case in point: the controversial 16th stage of 2014's Giro, which featured terrible weather and a confusing neutralization situation that may or may not have influenced Quintana's overall victory.

The combination means you stay dry and warm with enough ventilation to keep you from overheating. You may still ...
