It was cold but sunny again. We headed up to passo Sella (2240 m). The ride up was spectacular as we were right under huge snow covered cliffs. We descended to a junction and I opted for an easier route while Thomas and Marco headed off to flog themselves on some nastier climbs. Instead I rode up to passo Gardena and sat in the sun for a bit and munched on a sandwhich. Then it was back down to the junction, back up to passo Sella (still 2240 m), and back down to Canazei. Yes legs, time for a rest.
