Even a few days back, the charming Vertical of Becca di Viou, an uphill climb that will give you a view of the whole city of Aosta and the 'four thousand' of the Valle d'Aosta. A first part of the race on the trail, then from the 'La Nouva' alpine, the beginning of the last tear in the middle of the stones and a deafening silence.
It is the Vertical of Becca of Viou of 9 kilometers and 1,900 meters of positive difference which will leave from the square of Valpelline and will reach the 2,856 meters of the summit. And the path has now been officially formalized, unchanged with respect to the program. Despite some small snow patches, 99% will climb to the top of Becca. To allow for the passage of the race, a lot of work was needed by the organizers, who were obliged to climb up to clean the trails.
