Cycling: First Test for the "Mountain Challenge 2007", Bordighera - Seborga

The first test for the traditional annual cycling competition of the “Mountain Challenge 2007” from Bordighera to Seborga was won by Dell’Oriente for the Junior/Senior Category (1h 22’) and by Ginestra Flavio for the Veteran Category.
Like last year, the sixty competitors took part in the first of eight tests of the competition in bad weather, cycling through the Nervia valley, from Dolceacqua to Ospedaletti, Bordighera and finally to Seborga after tackling the never ending uphill road of 11 km. The next test is planned for Sunday 4 March, starting at Bordighera for the “Romana” circuit.
