Perhaps this was the valley’s most talked about event of 2015. The inaugural Valtellina Tube Race witnessed a flurry of feet as hundreds of competitors geared up to climb the 2,700 steps. It’s called the tube race because participants run alongside hydroelectric pipes. For a preview of this dramatic course, check out this official race video.
