  Stelvio Pass (Italy) @ 26 August - an elevation of 2760 metres, 27 kilometres of climbing, 45 hairpins, the odd dark tunnel, the odd tourist motorcyclist, the hint of snow at any point in time, not to mention the road seems to hang off a cliff ... well done to Melissa Budd for getting to the Stelvio summit

 Bormio (Italy) @ 25-26 August - Peter & Melissa Budd and Frank Signor landed in Bormio for their Dolomite pass challenges. Peter rode up the Mortirolo Pass (the traditional Giro approach via the Pantani Monument), then onto the Gavia Pass (again via the traditional Giro approach made famous by Andy Hampsten in the snow in 1988). Frank, Peter & Melissa then combined to tackle the Stelvio just outside Bormio.    

TOUR DE BELLO - 30 AUGUST TO 2 SEPTEMBER

Alex Simmons (BiciSport) hosted the second Tour De Bello with a happy peloton of some 15 riders. The daily program was a mixture of the Promised Land (yes, there is such a place), Kalang River & the Alpe D'Kalang climb, North Arm, Urunga, Mylestom and Sawtell.
