Daniel told in the news:
"One criteria in our superlist is the mediatic viewpoint. You know that some climbs may move in or out our superlist, according to very strict rules now. TV broadcasting of professional races showed recently two impressive climbs. Tirreno-Adriatico had a terrible arrival in Montelupone up a 1800m long 20% climb. The Tour of Romandy had a scenic cobbled climb in Fribourg, called côte de la Lorette, 1km long with 16% sections. Those two climbs aren't in our superlist but could come in further if one southern italian or Jurassic swiss BIG would have to be deleted one day or another"

And two more impressive and mediatic climbs more that aren't in the list:

- La Roche aux Faucons, new in Liege Bastogne Liege. Very important in the final resolution of the race.

- In Vuelta al Pais Vasco, surely many of you heard about Alto de Aia

Fantastic Videos, Claudi.
With some views on the Montelupone (cyclists by foot) that I told about.
Impressive, really !
In which region of the Basque country is it really ?

For those who didn't know Cote de la Lorette in Friburg, it was also climbed in Tour de Suisse 2007. Look at the video:
