Pretty as a picture

Fabulous day today in the mountains of Liguria. Roaring up and screaming down intestinal twists and turns with precipitate drops and splendid views. We had 4 time trials on impossibly demanding narrow little roads that even the Aston will struggle to do in the target times set. Penalties for everyone I’m sure, but we had no issues and should have done OK. This picture was taken a bit later on the Italy France border. The border is 1700 metres up in the Alps and rather impressive. Not a customs post or official to be seen. We continue to climb on a simply stunning road up over 2000 metres and the glaciers on Mont Cenis. For the first time in many days we have sunshine and blue skies. Fantastic.
