Got the event poster finished.
(edit - basic site now up, http://torino-nice.weebly.com/
For anyone interested in mixed terrain routes, the plan is to run a version of our Turin-Nice last summer as a rally ride / checkpoint-free Randonee. Same basis as any other self-supported event with the idea being that it's not particularly biased to any one type of bike or rider, from memory approx 50% of riding time is on tarmac including a couple of big cols linking sections of high altitude stradas, hence the 'Rally' idea. A few sections would be tough going on a light CX bike but faster than on a mountain bike over many other sections so it makes bike and tyre choice interesting. It's probably under 5 full days if you're quick, 7-8 if you take it easy. There is a fair bit of climbing - 25,000m or so at a guess, a lot of riding above 2000m.
Ideally it'll be early summer, date tbc based on suiting a few interested entrants. I'm keen to ride it again and will refine the route to take in the best of what we found. Molini di Triora pool will be staying in for anyone wanting a wash/dip before arriving in Nice!
No Spot requirements, could set up a tracker page if there's interest. I'll provide a cue sheet and GPX well ahead of the start. Some sort of site due when I figure that out. Just judging interest for now.
A few pics for a fair idea of terrain, there's also a trip report in the Trips and Adventures forum.
