Again at 09:00 we started off, this time towards Caldonazzo Lake. From Montan over a narrow asphalt band towards Truden and on to Kaltenbrunn. Behind S. Lugano we took a right towards Altrei. The 6km stretch of road to town is in good shape and wide, but because of being wet could not be driven at the pace we wanted. In Altrei the road turns to cobble stone and goes by on the left side of the church. Now the road suddenly became very narrow, the space barely allows a motorcycle to squeeze by a oncoming car.
However, we did not have any oncoming traffic and we quickly got down into Val di Cembra. Here we took a right and quickly drove towards Faver. The road switches between being nice and wide to very narrow, but the sight is good and ideal for motorcycles. In Faver we took a left into the valley and then through Lasés to the Caldonazzo Lake. There we turned right and after a few kilometers left towards Carbonare. Half the distance there (at S. Nicolo), we stopped for lunch.



Then we headed up to Passo di Sommo and left towards Tonezza. Shortly before town, just as 3 years ago(!), the street was closed and we had to take a narrow side street. The street was still partially covered in snow, so we had to be careful.



Nevertheless, we all made it without incident and we continued on. After Tonezza turns off an almost imperceptible small asphalt ribbon, left towards the valley.
Once we arrived at the bottom we shortly went left and then immediately right again towards Asiago. As narrow and small the previous section was this section was equally wide and large. A curve rush with 17 curves!



We followed this route until Asiago and then turned left there towards Vézzena. Here we took a cappuccino break.
