    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    IMPORANT UPDATE October 2020 -
    Severe flood damage and disruption to the southern sections of the route 4.1, 4.2, 5.1, 5.2, 6 and SCR.3. Route impassable and dangerous.
    4.2 - Areas before and after the Col Tende subject to disruption, closure and unstable ground. Diversions in this area are not generally possible, the Col Tende being the only gap in a long chain of mountains. Check local situation before attempting to travel. The TNR Ltd Co now (in Oct 2020) considers this route for reference only and strictly NOT for travel use, until further updates are possible in 2021.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------
    Stage 4.2 - Ponte Marmora, Italy to Col Tende / Colle di Tenda, France-Italy border.
    Filename '4.2 TNR PteMarmora-Preit-Tende'.The road climb through Preit to reach Little Peru, ending at another border col. A quiet, picturesque and at times very tough road climb through Preit (there are some good places to stay here, the Refugio Lou Lindal for example) leads to the Col Preit and then continues into the Altopiano della Gardetta area. The Gardetta is a relatively long section of rougher track at altitude with dramatic scenery, not a place to be caught by the weather. There is a refuge in the area though, The Refugio Gardetta, and it's a very good one - recommended. The route continues on a long descent to Demonte, a bike path road to Borgo San Dalmazzo and good resupplies at Limone Piemonte. It follows the same route as 4.2 after the Gardetta area, using a flat route between Demonte and Limone Piemonte. There are bike shops in Borgo San Dalmazzo.The Torino-Nice Rally route here is the same as used for the Torino-Nice Rally annual event. The event and route info management is in support of Smart Shelter Foundation.
