GF Sestriere Colle delle Finestre, where cycling history was made

In 2018, Chris Froome embarked on a legendary 80-kilometer solo on the partially unpaved Colle delle Finestre that would eventually earn him overall victory in the Giro d'Italia. That ensured that Finestre permanently nestled itself in the Champions League of cols. You have the chance to tick off this epic climb while also riding a brilliant gran fondo. Meet the Gran Fondo Sestriere Colle delle Finestre on June 23.
