The fourth and penultimate round of the 2017 Superenduro season has just wrapped up: the weather made for a complicated race, but it also spiced the event up. The small venue in the Parma province has been a real discovery for many participants: with loads of amazing trails the MTB future of this destination is bright.
Vittorio Gambirasio (Red Bike) had some solid lines and was the fastest in Stage one, gaining over 20 seconds, a margin that he managed to extend over the following stages.
In the women’s category Laura Rossin (GB Rifar Mondraker Team) scores the hat-trick and wins all Stages with a solid margin over the rest of the field.
At Calestano all racers rode out of their comfort zone, feeling the pressure of giving it all in extreme conditions and with minimal knowledge of the terrain. All riders racing at Calestano challenged themselves, but they gained a wealth of experience that will allow them to grow as mountain bikers, in a discipline that never falls short of emotions.
The final round of the season will be on 21/22 October at Santa Margherita Ligure, Liguria (EWS Qualifier Event): see you there!
