Dale James from Peterborough decided to take on the Stella Alpina Challenge in 2013, which sees riders ascend a ski slope high in the Italian Alps, once most of the snow has melted.

The only difference, Dale decided to do it on his Aprilia Tuono 1000R, fitted with a set of TKC 80 on/off-road tyres from Continental, covering 3200 miles in total.
