Livigno has long been regarded as a training haven by riders from the Subaru-MarathonMTB.com Team. The altitude of about 1800m, with road passes to 2350m nearby, and off road passes to over 2700m means not only does it have the altitude, but also the options required for training.
Even better, there is plenty of flat terrain, lots of places to eat, and lots of cycling friendly places to stay. Oh – and purpose built mountain bike trails.
Vittorio Brumotti joined the Saxo-Tinkoff team in Livigno for their training camp – and took a tour of the roads, facilities, and awesome trails while he was there.
