Descending I just gripped the brakes all the way, as the gravel made gathering speed dangerous. I rejoined the main road and resumed climbing to Pala Barzana (850m), then down the other side. Took the shortcut through Val di Frina instead of Poffabro. After Valcolvera I checked out the newly refurbished tunnel- very well-lit and paved now. I'll definitely use it more often. Continued home through Maniago and the bridge at Ravedis. Great ride.
