The 23rd edition of Bike Festival will be opened on Friday, 29th April.
Do you like numbers? Here you have! More than 150 exhibitors, 3000 active athletes who will call out in the different tracks, and 40.000 visitors during the 3-day fair.
These are the numbers of Bike Festival, but actually, unless you are a Pythagoras’ fan, the most exciting cycling event on Lake Garda can – and also has to – be narrated through adjectives as: fascinating, funny, thrilling, heady and stimulant. Or even sexy, as Uli Stanciu himself, the MTB guru and Bike Festival’s creator, states!
That of Bike Festival is a programme rich in sport events as the North Lake Enduro (on a brand-new track!), the Scott Jr Trophy (for kids), devoted to the children from 3 to 14, and guided tours by E-bike (are you too curious and eager to book them? click here!). Another innovation is the Radon Pump Battle, a speed race on two pump tracks in which the fastest wins. It offers the audience an even more engaging event, in which the rounds come in succession without a break and the show is guaranteed!
As for the Bosh EMTB Marathon, now in its second edition, a new circuit dedicated to e-MTB has been designed. Athletes can choose between two tracks, one 28,63 km and the other 44,24 km long. Anyway, the sporting highlight will be reached on Saturday, the 30th with the famous Rocky Mountain Bike Marathon; all participants can choose between three tracks: small (Ronda Piccola), big (Ronda Grande) and extreme (Ronda Extrema). It will boost this three-day event based on enthusiasm, perseverance and passion!

Not just a race, not just a fair for cycling products. It is something more, a true heap of pathos and sweat, soul and enthusiasm.
I am ready and willing to live this at the most, in Riva del Garda from April, the 29th, to May, the 1st 2016. After all, I have still some days to train… to watch the athletes!
And even if you aren’t that kind of MTB addicted, we are waiting for you at the Open Night on Saturday, the 30th, a big party with good food, good music and much fun!
