Because of a big landslide at Col di Tende, we had to change the route for today and went over the Col de la Lombarde. Not a bad alternative. It was great! Great scenery amd riding. But before we did the Col de Turini, a famous Tour de France and Rally Monte Carlo pass. Hotel Portici in Vicoforte welcomed us with snacks an bootbeer.
