Ah! this region has it all. Good food, nice weather and epic trails.
Although known for it’s EWS venue in Finale Ligure, we stay away from the beaten path on this trip. Based in the medieval town, close to the French border we will explore some of Italy’s finest. Expect rocks, dust and uplifts on crazy narrow Italian mountain roads!
Thursday – Check-in from 20h and a drink to get to know each other.
Friday – Full day of uplift assisted riding, group dinner.
Saturday – Full day of uplift assisted riding, group dinner.
Sunday – Half day of uplift assisted riding, finishing off with a group lunch. Around 14h check out and time to head back to reality.
TOOLS FOR THE JOB
The best weapon of choice is a 140 – 160mm enduro bike, with dropper post and some sturdy double ply tires. There will be some climbing involved, but our main friend these days is the uplift shuttle taking us as high as the roads go. We generally not have people riding E-bikes as this creates too big of a difference in climbing speed.
Be self sufficient. Bring spares, mini tool and spare clothes. There are some bikeshops in the area, but you’d rather not waste time shopping when you could be riding.
The choice for open of full face is yours, but we do require you to wear gloves and kneepads. Elbow pads are recommended. Make sure you’re lycra is hidden from the view. No one wants to see that.
WHAT MAKES IT SPECIAL
To spice things up, we have 5 timed ‘special stages’ planned spread out over the weekend. You ride the specials blind (without practice, not blindfolded!) and with low tech time measurement. This is definitely a ‘just for fun’ type thing. Each day we post the overal ranking, just to keep it interesting.
If riding against the clock really isn’t your thing, no worries! There is no pressure and you can choose to chill and ride the ‘specials’ in your own pace.
To make this trip ultra awesome, we always bring a pro photographer / videographer along. You can be sure to come home with some banger shots after this trip!
This trip is not for beginners! Expect technical single tracks, rocks, roots and some hike a bike sections. When in doubt if you have the skills set to enjoy this trip, get in touch with us!
