When an Instagram figure comes to test a huge project…
Do you know Stefano LA ( @stefanoellea )? This Italian sportsman who works for many brands has no less than 30.4K followers on Instagram! He is a pro influencer, who already came to discover the Maurienne last summer.
He was only waiting for one thing: to come back
We have therefore concocted a challenge for him to take up 😀
He will survey some Mauriennais peaks and discover a new cross-border route: VIALPS.
Vialps is a cross-border cycling loop between the Franco-Italian Alps of the North and the South, worked in part by Maurienne Tourisme, the association that manages this site (velo-maurienne.com).
The route allows you to discover the mountains in a different way, in cyclosportive mode or in slow tourism/travel bike mode, and to appreciate the variety of the riches of the territories crossed. Whether by a normal bike or electric bike, in one day or in several stages, this loop beyond the borders makes it possible to connect and rally several varied routes including the great mythical passes taken by the Giro d’Italia or the Tour of France .
