Antenne di San Rocco
Main 2015 winter-training destination for the Italian National DH squad, this ride follows the course of the 2012 Superenduro Pro race Special Stages 3 and 4.
The route is actually a double loop with two different difficulty levels. The first loop, know as Antenne, is characterized by a short climb with a few demanding ramps, followed by 10 minutes of singletrack, easy and fun, which allows you to admire the beautiful views of the Dianese bay. The second loop, known as Cervo, is an excellent trail to warm up with before a full day in the saddle. It rewards the riders with the experience of pedalling straight above the sea and with the thrill of the well-known jump Salto nel Blu [Jump into the Blue].
Climbing in the direction of the hamlet of Chiappa, where you should make a stop to admire the ancient Roman milestone dating back to the 16th century BC, keep to the right towards the radio-masts and pick up, after about 500 m, the dirt track to Colle Dico.
A circular water tank marks the start point of San Rocco
trail, a real blast for intermediate and experienced riders: doubles, drops, berms and steep passages in quick succession, an adrenaline rush for sure!
