Wonderful Three !
We combine the top three Eroica races in Italy: L’Eroica, Eroica Montalcino and Nova Eroica, plus a round up of the worldwide Eroica races. The rides are on dirt roads cutting through the breathtaking scenery of vineyards, rolling hills, Mediterranean scrub and the open landscapes of Val d’Orcia and Crete Senesi on race bikes over 20 years old, wearing classic cycling outfits worn by riders of times past in a fun and unique 153km with sumptuous cuisine along the way and a big party at the finish. Race, Ride and Relax!
Mahikan Fat Bike Race Roberval
In these last exciting episodes, WWTrek’s Dean leads an expedition to the summit of Mt. Elbrus (18,510’), Europe’s highest peak. One of the Seven Summits, It is a sentinel on the border between Europe and Asia. Locally referred to as, “Mingitau,” or “the mountain of a thousand mountains,” Mount Elbrus is a massive, dormant double-coned volcano covered in eternal snow.
The Engadinsnow has been held annually since 2003 and is one of the oldest and most spectacular freeride events in the Alps. 120 of the world’s best freeriders from 16 nations compete in the 17th edition. Competitors swerve down the 65 degrees steep north face of Corvatsch (3451 meters) around rocks and through deep powder snow fields in the Swiss ski resort of St. Moritz-Silvaplana.
