Endurance

Pure emotion!
  • Departure at the Alta Valtellina bike village stadium in Rasin Isolaccia;
  • Launch section passing through the heart of the village of Isolaccia;
  • Start uphill to Pedenosso Alto - S.Antonio tot. km 7 (5 km on asphalt and then beginning of dirt road);
  • Drop off on the little white road of the Decauville turn right towards Torri di Fraele;
  • At Torri di Fraele mt 1930 (one of the most typical connotations of Valdidentro, on the route of the ancient Via Imperiale) you enter the spectacular valley of the same name;
  • Passing near the small lake of Monte Scale, you reach the Cancano dams, (two artificial lakes of enormous dimensions that constitute an authentic work of hydroelectric engineering inserted in an environment of particular naturalistic interest; the hydroelectric use of the Fraele valley dates back to 1928).
  • Follow the first dam on the left side, cross the dividing wall and pass on the right side of the second dam, over 12 km mostly flat on wide dirt road;
  • Once in the locality of S.Giacomo keeping to the right you proceed on an easy path towards Val Mora near the Swiss border ( we are still on the traces of the ancient via d'Alemagna historical and important commercial link between Valtellina and the neighboring northern European countries until 1487). Before crossing the border we turn and proceed in the direction of Prà Grata to return to S.Giacomo.
  • Follow the S.Giacomo dam on the right side, after about 3 km on a wide flat road, at Val Pettin, detour and start the climb to Alpe Trela mt 2200, km 2 on a dirt road with a compact bottom;
  • Short flat stretch and uphill again for another 1.5 km on path to reach Bocchette di Trelina mt 2283;
  • Spectacular descent in the direction of Val Vezzola: first part on fun single-track and then continue on dirt road to the entrance of the trail that goes to the Foscagno valley; after a series of technical ups and downs, descend and return to the flat Decauville road;
  • Passage at Arnoga, crossing the state road to Livigno in the direction of Val Viola; a valley dominated by the mountains that are part of the Cima Piazzi and Corna di Campo group: in fact, the Cima Piazzi, Cima Viola and Cima Dosdé soar above it;
  • A first uphill section km 1 leads into Val Verva;
  • At Baite Verva Bassa, on a newly created trail, proceed on 3 km of fun ups and downs;
  • The trail becomes wider and after 1 km you pass through Val Cardonnè and then turn left and after crossing the bridge you climb for 500 m;
  • Flowing descent for 1 km and detour right to Paluetta (ascent km 1);
  • From Paluetta km 1 on varied terrain to Alpe Boron mt 2057;
  • Short descent and immediately turn right to face a climb of about 1 km at times very challenging "wall of Prei";
  • The trail climbs to Prei, a particularly scenic place where the view can sweep over all the surrounding valleys covered in the first part of the trail; through a new fun flat path with a slight descent you reach Alpe Pone;
  • Still on a newly created path, we skirt the Valdidentro alpine ski slopes to the entrance of the Palancana road, a long flat stretch immersed in thick pine forests among which spectacular panoramic windows open onto the Bormio area;
  • Breathtaking descent to the historic-naturalistic area of the Venini military fort and the Paluaccio di Oga reserve;
  • Taking advantage of the fun trails built for the bike park in Oga you "fly" to the Motte, the Corva, and with passage on the winter cross-country ski trail and the Isolaccia bike path you have arrived!
