Sugar Peo

From the start point at Le Grazie, continue towards Case Bondoni, an ancient village nowadays mostly populated during the summer only, en route to Monte Muzzerone, where the track begins. To reach Monte Muzzerone, pass near a quarry of Portoro [a variety of marble]. In the background you can spot the crags used for rock climbing and the 'Salto della suocera', a sheer drop of about 100 meters overhanging the sea. You will soon reach the summit, where the fortress with the same name stands (today is a military firing range).

From Monte Muzzerone continue at full speed on asphalt for about 150 m, then turn left, continue 500 m on a technical downhill and, at the end of it, turn left. You will be on a flat-ish area that then becomes a downhill about 300 m long, taking you to a rocky ramp 70 m long. From this point on, adrenaline, technique and good fun will follow you until the end of the route.
