SELLE SAN MARCO MAIN PARTNER FOR THE SIXTH EDITION OF THE TUSCANY TRAIL

Selle San Marco will be a principal sponsor for the sixth edition of the Tuscany Trail, one of the most famous bike-packing events in the world, which will set out from Massa on Saturday, June 1st.

The Tuscany Trail is a 550-km adventure by bike through the marvelous scenery of Tuscany, a unique territory that seems to have been forged for a cycling dimension. This year, more than 700 enthusiasts from over 30 countries have registered for the Tuscany Trail. The organizers have described this event as an “unsupported bicycle adventure”. In fact, the itinerary for the route will be loaded onto a GPS program that will be provided to each participant before it all gets underway. Each rider will ride at their own pace, with no timetable or limits, for an adventure in complete self-reliance.

The route will cover paved roads, secondary streets, mule trails and paths; perfect terrain on which to test the Selle San Marco Supercomfort models.

Each day participants can freely choose how many km to cover on the pre-stablished itinerary, as well as the locations where to stop and spend the night.

The arrival for everyone riding the Tuscany Trail has been established at Capalbio Scalo (Gr), where participants will sign their name to a roster attesting to their completion of this extraordinary adventure.

“Selle San Marco is thrilled to support an event like the Tuscany Trail, because it perfectly envelops the values that we wish to transmit to our clients,” says the Marketing Manager for Selle San Marco, Paolo Frison. “It’s for cyclists who want to share their passion for bikes with friends and family, combining physical performance with the excitement of discovering the territory. Furthermore, at the starting point in Massa, we will set up a display space where all the participants can get a hands-on look at the products from our collection, particularly to models dedicated to the world of Gravel.”
