standard75 kmchallenge

there is nothing standard about the standard 75.

There is nothing Standard about the Standard 75. You will start on the same roads as the longer distance events, winding through the Franciacorta vineyards and the beautiful landscapes of the Northern Italian Lake district. The Standard 75 is flatter than the longer events, but the gravel is just as tough and the views just as stunning. As an additional bonus, the Standard 75 gets you back to the start/finish area quicker, where food and wine will be awaiting.

The Standard 75 starts at 9am the time cut-off is 12 hours based on an average speed of 12.5KMH

We also invite your friends and family to join us, and anybody who does not wish to ride will find plenty of things to do at the start/finish line and in the immediate surroundings. You can also make a long weekend out of by adding some relax time along Lago d’Iseo or in Verona and Bergamo.
