Superenduro Pro1 - Golfo Dianese - Italy (on MAPEX)


I took part at the  first round of the Italian Superenduro mtb series and... has being hard, a very hard race.
Location: the amazing Riviera of Liguria near Imperia, Diano Marina and San Bartolomeo al mare.
Four Special Stages and a lot up hard uphill to connect them for a total of 45km...=-0
More than 350 riders in total at the start,  from all over Europe were ready to fight against the best Italians, but at the end of the race the podium was all "tricolore" !

My race was a hell of a lot of fun riding the Mapex Krypton and I had also chance to test and love the Foss tubes, super light and strong !

Unfortunately my physical condition was not good enough for this tough race under the hot Italian sun and the fact that I never practice on this trails before in my life didn't help at all....I even took the wrong way ones. I was around the position 150 but I almost passed out at  the start of the 4th stage and I had to stop for 6-7 min.... :( , anyway I was always to tired at the begin of the stages and I was not able to push as much as I wanted....(loooooser).
I really need an harder training program is I want to race in this sport.

The Krypton has being amazing and the Foss incredible! And the Mapex guys...well the coolest people in the world ! :)
My next endurance gravity race? Italian Supermountain round 1 ..... there I don't have to pedal to the top, is "just" a veeery long way down :P
