128KM | 3,550M+ · Thursday 7th September
Canazei is a great place to stay, so we’ll spend an extra night there to enjoy the best of the Dolomites. There’s an easy start today too, with a nice false flat descent for the first 15km through the charming little villages of Vigo di Fassa and Soraga.
The climb to the Passo San Pellegrino (1,918m) starts in Moena and is fairly straightforward, averaging 6.8% over 11.4km. Expect a few steeper stretches where you’ll have to stand up but nothing too bad.
If it’s a hot day, you’ll be dreaming of that cold fizzy water on the eponymous summit.
Three more cols are on the schedule today: Passo Valles, Passo Lavazè and Passo Costalunga.
Canazei will host the Haute Route Dolomites 2017 from the 6th to the 8th of September
