On Day 2 of the journey the team dived head first into meet the challenge of the mountains. In total 89.76 kilometers were ridden and a height of 3600 meter was achieved.
The team made it to the legendary Lake Karer, revered by many for its crystal clear waters, and had a surreal lunch, dining under the cascading mountain tops often referred to as ‘the Rose Gardens’. Without a doubt this section of the tour was one of the toughest, but also one of the most beautiful and well worth the struggle. The final section of the route went smoothly, and carried them softly towards their final destination of the day, Seiser Alm.
The team stayed the night at Hotel Diabita in beautiful Seiser Alm, and enjoyed some of the tasty local cuisine.
