Rocacorba is a world-famous climb thanks to its length, varied pitches, and proximity to Girona (a haven for pro riders).
Named for the 12th-century Santuari de Rocacorba which sits on a little hill near the summit, the real-life climb hosts a fun bit of Zwift trivia: 2020 eSports World Champ Ashleigh Moolman Pasio holds the Strava QOM by a good margin, and Zwift Academy 2020 winner turned pro Jay Vine held the KOM for over 2 years, losing it only recently to Paul Double.
While trees mostly obscure the views on the way up, the road was paved in 2006 and gets very little auto traffic… making it perfect for cyclists!
According to locals, a good rule of thumb is to aim for a time that is your age plus ten minutes. The rule holds true on Zwift!
