State road 26 closed for the passage of the first stage between Saint-Pierre and Sarre, where even the “panoramic” is closed to traffic due to roadworks
The Valle d’Aosta Cycling Tour begins today. The sporting event this year takes place on three stages: the Pollein / Pollein, the Valtournenche / Breuil Cervinia and the Fénis / Cogne. To allow the passage of cyclists, the circulation on the state road 26 and on the regional roads by the municipalities concerned will suffer interruptions.
Today, the first stage, the race will start at 2.30 pm from Pollein and will pass on regional roads n. 19 in Charvensod and n. 20 in Gressan and Jovençan, then on regional roads no. 47 in Aymavilles and n. 23 in Villeneuve before reaching the state road 26 which will be closed to traffic in Saint-Pierre and Sarre from 2.30 pm until the passage of all cyclists. In Sarre, the “panoramic” road connecting with Aosta is closed in a stretch due to works, between the hamlets of Montan and Condemine, so those who need to travel to and from the capital must plan their journey carefully.
The stage will arrive in Aosta around 15.12. The clicists will pass through viale Piccolo San Bernardo, via Chambéry, via Chamolé, corso Lancieri, via Garin, via Carlo Alberto dalla Chiesa and via Vittime del Col du Mont towards Saint-Christophe. Subsequently the cycle tour of the Aosta Valley will pass on the regional roads n. 34 and n. 16, then on the municipalities of Saint-Christophe (capital) and Quart (Moulin, Lillaz) until reaching, at the estimated time of 4.04, the regional road 15 in Pollein and Brissogne and the sr 14 in Saint-Marcel and finally again the state road 26 near Nus around 4.23 pm. The race will return to Quart, Saint-Christophe and finally Pollein proceeding on the regional roads. The arrival is expected in Pollein at 5.45 pm
