TOUR DELL'ASSIETTA (mtb)
The Tour dell'Assietta, can be called a "Classic" of the Italian biker. This is the trail of one most important Mountain Bike Italian race (July) . Starting from Sestriere (Fraiteve Square); The first 10 km until Pragelato are downhill, arriving in Pragelato turn right and take tha dirt road in the right side of the Chisone to reach the lake of Pourrieres where you take the road (first section asphalt) towards Colle delle Finestre . After 8 km arriving in Pian dell'Alpe turn left and begin the dirt road that takes you up to the Colle dell'Assietta. The climb never has prohibitive slopes. The section of road from Colle delle Finestre to Col Basset (up and down) is really spectacular, in fact, this road passes almost always up to the mountains beetween Val Chisone and Val Susa for about 20 km. At Col Basset began a long and fast downhill that will bring you back to Sestriere.
