STAGE 1 | PINETA DI LAIVES
The ascent has a length of 10,7 km and a difference in height of more than 1000 m, with an average slope of about 10%. The ascent goes through a mostly woodland environment, without rest as far as the crossroads to Colle. From here the last stretch (1,5 km) is less demanding. The road is well-asphalted but narrow. Tiring are the first hairpin turns, that go to Costa.
