2019 – SS 9 & 12: Castagniccia

18/03/2019

Find out the details of one of the 14 special stages that will constitute the 2019 CORSICA linea – Tour de Corse. With the collaboration of Dominique Serieys, dive into SS 9-12:

Dominique Serieys, CORSICA linea – Tour de Corse 2019 Director:

« Start at the exit from Ponte-Leccia followed by a very quick climb to the Riscamone and Serna passes before turning off onto a narrow tricky road that crosses Castello-di-Rostino and Bisinchi. The passage of the cars in front of the Campile church, easily accessible from Barchetta, will be one of the highlights of the 2019 Tour. It’s followed by an uphill section via Crocicchia leading to the Saint-Antoine pass after which they continue along the mountainside to Piano on a new road, which the Tour de Corse has probably never used before. After Piano and Silvareccio, comes a change of direction to the San Agostino pass and the final uphill section in the muddy woodlands to the finish in Loreto di Casinca. »
