Not a great start for the Superenduro championship in Pietra Ligure (SV) where, due to bad weather, the race was suspended.
As early as Friday, adverse weather conditions were emerging which worsened on Sunday morning with snow at the top of the trails. Given the impossibility of guaranteeing safety for the athletes’ health, it was decided to cancel the race.
A decision that leaves a little bitter taste in our team mouths but, as announced by the organization, it was a problem of inadequate clothing for some riders (with some cases of hypothermia) rather than safety along the special trails which, as assured by the many athletes, were absolutely in good condition.
However, great esteem to Filippo Masotti, Alberto Stopani, Andrea Valsesia and Filippo Trabucco who were perfectly prepared and had already finished the first special trail at the time of the race cancellation.
Next meeting in Pogno (NO) on Sunday April 14th for the third stage of the 4Enduro championship, the Enduro of the Owls!
