Astana has a team daredevil?

Don't try this at home, boys and girls!

It is in Finale Ligure, outside a short tunnel just before you roll into town coming from  the Geneva side. What you can't see is the sand/gravel beach 3m below. That's long enough if you should fall, although I would be concerned where the handrail hits...

The Milano San Remo passes here every year now (typically right where live TV coverage starts), but the descent from Le Manie, used  several years in a row previously, ends right on the other side of the tunnel.  I only found out that last year that that hill was actually Le Manie ... even though I have been visiting several times, staying nearby   :lol

    Usually its those trials guys doing crazy-looking stuff like this in the vids. Hearing that there is a sand beach only 3m down, though, is actually comforting. He should survive that, should he lose it.
