Fueling up in Ax Les Thermes before the climb into Pas de la Case, Andorra.
Stelvio is the famous ride of the Dolomites and we did it justice by riding over it from both sides. First we hit it from Bormio and then descended the other side and transited to Switzerland to climb it thru the Swiss border. Over 4000 meters of climbing. But the descents were long and lovely!
It’s the transfer day to start our tour and also the final of Euro 2012 between Italy and Spain. We are in the Canazei town square watching the big screen with a thousand locals and 6 Spaniards. Of course Henda, our translator and driver is one of those 6. 2 nil to Spain as I go to bed so Italians not happy. For is it is the Sella Ronda on the morning! It doesn’t get any better.
