    Finale Outdoor Region

Designed and built, partially on a pre-existing trail, X-Men was created having an EWS stage in mind. Used for the first time in 2017 as Stage 3, remains, to the day, one of the most loved trails in the Caprazoppa Area.
Thanks to its red soil and textured rocks, it delivers great grip and some lines that don’t want you to stop and have a look at the environment you are in, even if you should.

Access Info

Caprazoppa is reachable from the E80 highway accessing Finale Ligure, then drive north on the SP490 until Gorra. At that point take a sharp left on Via Per Gorra towards Verezzi.

Given its nature, the trail can change after weather happenings and season changes. Always pay attention.

       PS: this is not a BLUE rated trail, there are many stairs and tight corners with steep rocks.

       If you follow the trail exactly, then its a blue one.
      At the end between the old road theres an S3 part you can ride (only S3 as shortcut between the road), which is not part of the trail depending on the gps.
      ... i guess thats why some vote the difficulty here higher

       Super hard to find. Some signposting would be needed. Not sure if I actually rode the right trail, if yes can't understand the good rating. Mostly easy blue and then some steep stairs. Quite uninteresting

       Ho il dubbio di aver percorso il trail nella sua traccia corretta, quantomeno in alcuni tratti, commento per quello che ho visto... In generale ho avuto delle sensazioni contrastanti, in alcuni punti è uno spettacolo, in altri non sembra un trail (mi sono trovato su una scalinata stretta e instabile). Non ho visto il minimo cartello, come anche sui trail di avvicinamento, forse si potrebbe migliorare da questo punto di vista. Penso comunque che ci tornerò, quantomeno per la curiosità di vedere se la traccia è proprio quella.
