Highlights and tour details

Depart from the town center of Biella. The Valle Cervo will take you in the direction of the village of Rosazza, also known as the "most mysterious village of Italy". Here you will go to the left in the direction of the Rosazza Tunnel (WARNING: lights are needed while going through the  tunnel) Continuing on an uphill climb reaching  1488 meters above sea level and along a winding descent to The “Santuario di Oropa”  a UNESCO World Heritage site. The famous hill starting from the town center of Biella climbing up to the Sanctuary measures a total of 13 km, it is not a constant climb: ridable stretches with alternate climbing stretches. This is the  climb of Pantani's legendary victory in 1999 which has stuck in the memory of many cyclists. The exciting comeback  of  the champion forced to stop for a  jumping chain with the leading group and then  re-launching  towards the finish, it was exciting.

After a necessary stop to admire this majestic place, go down to the valley along thirteen exciting km of curves with sections at 13%.

At the end downhill, go through the  town of Biella to reach the starting point.
