Col de Nice, Col du Braus with the Boys and Col de Tende with gravel sections.

Trofeo Baracchi to Torino. No chats, no jokes,... just powering and eating rubish to finish before dark. What a ride!

Arriving on the Corso Vittorio in the rain, picking up the car and Cin Cin with wel deserved Spumante!

Thanks buddy for the unforgettable journey. X
