PROLOGUE ROUTE Saturday 23
SPECIAL STAGES Sunday 24
From Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, take Brunenghi street direction Finalborgo, and near the police station turn right to ascend to the plateau of San Bernardino. On the residential area, follow the signs for “Residenza Rubino” to via degli Alisei. From here starts the familiar path of “Ciappi”, which brings to the first special stage that begins neara big crossroads on the left, from which starts the “Dolmen Trail (5 km).
1ST SPECIAL STAGE – DOLMEN TRAIL
It’s the first path in the history of the Final Enduro, restored 3 years ago (after almost 40 years of neglect) for the first edition of Finalenduro. Short (1 km) but intense, alternating fast parts in technical sections and very driven! After the first 200 meters, at a junction just near the path turns right and then runs into the woods to reach a Dolmen, from which takes its name. The special stage ends at a T-junction with another path that takes to the next transfer.
Follow the path that climbs almost to the left and turn right at the top to easily reach the main road. After a mile of asphalt you will reach again the path of Ciappi. When you reach the junction you crossed befor at the first special stage turn right and enter the path, full of ups and downs very fubby. After a short steeply uphill you arrive in front of a big crossroads, where starts the next special stage on the right.
From this point it is beginning the second that the third special stage.
2ND SPECIAL STAGE – RUGGETTA
The path soon meets other two junctions, the first one goes right (you will turn left into the next special stage), the second (barely visible) turns rightagain and brings into a thick wood through a fun trail that runs on some terraces and passes through technical turns and steep tracts very funny. The trail passes through a very wild environment and reaches first a cave and then a source. Keeping to the left at the crossroads you arrive to the village of Lacremà, from which you take the mule track that leads to the final Calvisio.
From Calvisio falls to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II along the road.
Here after the time control, we leave for the second round back on the plateau of San Bernardino.
3RD SPECIAL STAGE – CA’ DEL VACCHE’
Take the same path of previous special, but at the first intersection you now turn sharply left with a curve of 180 degrees, which takes us to single track with a series of switchbacks that takes us to the Case del Vacchè, which gives the name to the special, intercepting a path marked with a red losenge. Follow the track until the village of Lacremà. Along the trail you will discover 2 crossroads (one for a trail marked with three red dots and another after a climb uphill, marked by a red square blank) and you should always go left downhill. When you reach the village of Lacremà you reach a paved road that takes you down to 100 meters and you reach a mule track. Take it and you reach Calvisio, where is the end of the PS.
Once you reach the road turn right and near a bridge go left on the road to the village of Verzi. Near the top, follow the road Julia Augusta on the left also known as the road of Roman bridges. Follow the main dirt road through three Roman bridges reaching out to a sharp crossover. Take the right path that leads to the plateau of Manie. When you reach a restaurant, take the asfalt road that follows and at the next crossroad keep the right on a fast track on the road that crosses the plateau. Then take the right again and continue on the road until you reach the osteria della Briga. Here, alongside a clear and wide curve on the left, we stopped in a dirt clearing, from which starts the last special.
4TH SPECIAL STAGE
Path justly famous, as its 2.6 km length are almost entirely of Single Track! After a while you come to a junction where the path turns right and you start to descend. The first part is more technical, but fast. You will reach a second crossroad, where you have to turn left. After a fast single track through the fields we arrive at the houses where you continue straight until you reach a small clearing near a chapel. From here keep the right to intercept an old mule track which leads directly to Finalpia.
