from 19 Mar 2016 to 20 Mar 2016
Rock Shox Massa Marittima Superenduro
The first round of the Superenduro Mountainbike championships went off with great success! 20 March 2016 was for sure one of those days that will be remembered for a long time both for us the co-organisors as well as the riders taking part in it.
The staff of the hotel Massa Vecchia and the Trail Brothers crew have been the organisers of this race. An incredible number of 400 participants coming from 12 different countries started on the paddock as well as a surprising record of 25 women. Furthermore Italy has seen for the very first raceers in the e-bike category! We personally truly believe in it and we are very proud of having been the boost for it!
The race took place on 6 stages and the surprise of havingboth the start and the finish directly in downtown Massa Marittima. The last stage started from the top of the city at the Monteregio castle leading through the ancient alleys of the oldtown to arrive a last descent from the cathedral’s stairs to pass the finish line of the race.
The arrival in the middle of the city was a boosting prremiere as normaly enduro races finish in the middle of the wood. In Massa Marittima the last transfer concluded the arrival for the last stage and the rider received the last stimulation from hundreds of spectators creating alltogether a stunning athmosphere!
This race represents for us and the Massa Marittima region a starting point. After the famous Maremma Cup – also powered by Sram – we made the great proof for the mountainbiking community: Besides being a zone for the cross country riders, we have a huge potential to open our area for the gravity sector.
The project is to continue to create more enduro lines assembling to being a park where it is possible riding, training and having fun throughout 12 months a year and more over for all levels of riding.
