The first race of the Gravitalia circuit, the Italian Downhill Championship, took place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th at Pian del Poggio (PV).
Even the Guidi Rosas Bike Team participated in the race with three very determined, resolute and brave athletes.
A small, charismatic and friendly team that has brought together other riders, friends and champions under the gazebo of the group. Here’s the sport: competition, friendship, sharing, fun.
Bad weather was the real protagonist of the two days. Saturday blocked the qualifications and our athletes on top of Mount Chiappo. Epic and fun was the subsequent descent, between mud and hail. So then, the time trial is slipped on Sunday morning and the final race in the afternoon.
A good race of Luca Gianoglio who finished the race over 2.5 km far under the 4 minutes. And this despite a muscular resentment.
Great performance for Luca Rainotti at his first DH race. Decided to try heroically with a single-crown fork!
A particular big tick for Alberto Filisetti who took the podium as 5th overall in his category.
Excellent results that predict other successes. The hope is that they can entice more daring young people to experience this crazy and adrenaline discipline with us.
