Nostalgic Season Start on the Ligurian Coast

The Trofeo Laigueglia (say Lay-ee-Gway-lia) sits quietly a few weeks ahead of Milan-SanRemo on the Italian race calendar, but is an important season opener for Italian & French riders to test out early season legs in the hills along the Ligurian Coast. Swiss writer Alain Rumpf spent the weekend in '23, and soaked up some rain, the race, and then a top ride - a great way to shake off winter.
