Monday was the second day of riding in Finale. Today's trails had more dirt and less rocks to offer. Several descents offered great views to the sea. All in all another fantastic day!

This was a fantastic day! Based on today's experience trails of Finale are really, really good! Better than what we had expected. Surprisingly long runs, not least taking into account that starting points were no higher than 1000m above the sea. Very thick fog above 700m gave its flavour for the riding. Lot of rocks and drops. Really can feel that it was the first day of riding for this season. Looking forward to tomorrow already!

After an excessively short night and an early wake up, a three hour flight from Helsinki brought us to Milan. After having waited for our bike bags some 45 minutes at the airport, we were sure that they have been lost. They magically, however, were delivered just when we were about to report them as lost items. After some fuzz with the rental car we finally headed towards Finale Lugure, located some 230km from Milan towards Nice. After arrival we met one of our guides, Alessandro, who briefed us about our schedule for the coming week. The day was finished with some great Italian wine and food. And Finale Ligure, a city of some 11.000 habitants, seems very beautiful and lively been at this time if the year. We spotted also a whole buch of fellow mountain bikers in the city. Really looking for the first day of riding tomorrow!
