Our Story

Passo Gavia is a legendary pass in the Italian Alps that has figured prominently in the Giro d'Italia, the Italian version of the Tour de France. The road reaches an elevation of 8,701 feet (2,621 m). It is steep, narrow and winding, having been completely paved only in recent years. On the south side of the pass there is a long tunnel that is dark and steep. The Passo Gavia is subject to considerable snowfall that can occur even late in the spring. During the Giro d'Italia of 1988, the American professional cyclist Andy Hampsten rode to victory during a brutal snowstorm that saw many riders drop out due to hypothermia. Hampsten is the only American to ever win the Giro d'Italia. GaviaLabs is a research group that aspires to solve important, difficult problems that require the perseverance shown by Andy Hampsten in his 1988 ride over the Passo Gavia.
