The 2035 meter-high climb of Sestriere is probably the most famous in Piemonte, both Tour de France and Giro d’Italia visited Sestreiere many times. Coppi won when the Tour de France first visited Sestriere in 1952, two days after the first ever summit finish at L’Alpe d’Huez. Claudio Chiappucci had an amazing day in the 1992 Tour de France to win in Sestriere. Miguel Indurain won a Giro stage on Sestriere and saved a Tour de France there. Lance Armstrong surprisingly won his first Tour mountain stage in Sestriere in 1999.
A narrow road and more than 30 hairpins to the Colle delle Finestre, one of the hardest climbs in Italy with the last 8km on unpaved roads. Recently introduced to the Giro d`Italia in 2005 but alredy an iconic climb to challenge.
Watch the GCN video climbing the Finestre.

Recently on the Colle dell`Agnello - the 2016 Cima Coppi at the Giro - the Dutch Steven Kruijswijk had a spectacular crash into the snow on the descent to France. We use to challenge the Agnello departing at least from Casteldelfino where the ascent is 23 km long, the average percentage is 6.5% and the maximum slope is 15%. The altitude at the top is 2744 meters-high.
The most spectacular climb of Piemonte, the Colle del Nivolet, worth a little longer car approach to Locana and enjoy the Parco Gran Paradiso. Our van will help to bypass the 3,5km tunnel to the top at 2641 meters.

More climbs are also avaliable: Colle Fauniera, Colle della Scala, Colle del Moncenisio and Pratonevoso.
