The 20K is an amazing adventure!
From this year the adventure doubled, indeed triple!
The 20K will not only be an MTB adventure but it will also be an unbelievable trail with 2 paths for pedal adventurers on asphalt. The 20K Ultratrail Road Adventure and the 20K Ultratrail Road Extreme 20K is probably the most “highest” European MTB trail whose streets are often above 2500 m above sea level.
Live Tracking – as for the best trails in the world – like Great Divide, Transcontinental Race, Colorado trail and others – partecipants are constantly tracked and and their location can be controlled the real time online, so that anyone can see where the bikers are in every moment. The bikers themselves will be able to do the same with their own smartphone.
The real core of the vital spirit of a person has the passion for adventure. The joy of living comes from the encounter with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy of a constantly changing horizon, lying every day under a new and different sun … (cit.)
The adventure will starts August 3, 2018, at 22 o’clock, in Pinerolo (TO), at the foot of the Alps, famous for the finish line of various editions of the Tour de France and the Tour of Italy, and ends on the Ligurian Sea, near the French border, which will be crossed many times by the fearless rider during this trail. Indescribable and exciting landscapes will be crossed, starting from the widespread woods in the first part of the itinerary, to the highest military roads in Europe, crossing mountain passes and fantastic singletrack, and diving in the beautiful Ligurian Sea at the end.
Logistics, gps navigation and self-reliance will be made even more difficult because of the passage in large high mountain areas where, for several hours, the bikers could be completely alone with themselves, immersed in the wildest nature.
