Are you ready for Lessinia Legend 2016?
There are only a few days left for Lessinia Legend, one of the most appreciated races by mountain bike lovers. These are the days to save: 24th , 25th and 26th of June.
Taking its name from the captivating setting where it takes place – the Lessinia Natural Park, among the Garda Lake, Verona and the Little Dolomites of Trentino – Lessinia Legend is rightly considered as the “longest marathon in Italy”. With its 125 km length and 4,600 meters altitude, it is certainly a demanding race, which attracts the most exigent cyclists, the ones who love challenges and who would like to constantly test their abilities. No wonder that the official sponsor of the event is Gist, which by its own nature loves the races that can take out the hero inherent to each cyclist. However, as an alternative to the Extreme path 125 km long, it is possible to take part in the Classic race 53 km long, without renouncing to immersing in the wonderful nature of the Lessinia Natural Park!
Mountain bike race and beyond
The mountain bike race taking place on the 26th of June is only the peak of three days that iclude unmissable events, all dedicated to sport and to the contact with nature. The event kicks off on the 24th of June with a night hike in the natural park, when athletes and other participants will have the chance to go along some stretches of the race path, calmly admiring the wonderful sights that this magic setting offers. The event also includes the tasting of some typical products, to make people discover also this aspect of the region that hosts Lessinia Legend 2016.
The event goes on Saturday the 25th of June with the opening of Verona Outdoor, in Bosco Chiesanuova. The world of hiking and sport will show off, and at the same time some free hikes will take place.
An event for young cyclists
Given that the passion for sport and nature should be cultivated from an early age, the event also features the Lessinia Legend Kids, a non-competitive cycling race that has been conceived for children and that will take place on the 25th of June.
