While Nice is famous for the Col de la Madone and Lucca the Monte Serra, Girona has its very own secret amongst friends, just 20 kilometers north of the old town. Named after the 12th century Santuari de Rocacorba that sits just shy of the summit this is a climb that, although not as well known as some of the more popular peaks, has a significance all of its own. It was only fully paved in around 2000 and has since been used by some of the world's best pros as a test climb to check their form. Its reputation has been cemented by David Millar, who lives near the climb and has named his invitation-only cycling club after it.
