Description

A new race series for those who exult in the challenge of gravel riding: four events, four countries, four vastly different experiences that will get your heart pounding with anticipation and excitement while leaving you with an unparalleled sense of accomplishment. From the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, to the lava fields of Mt. Etna, to the green forests of Slovenia and the gravel roads of Girona, we have amazing experiences in store for those who love getting off the tarmac.

 

The second race of the series brings you to the stunning Mt Etna national park on sicily.  Arrive in Catania, Sicily and absorb the amazing history of the city. Founded in 8th BC Catania had been the victim of terrible earthquakes and eruptions of Mt. Etna. Etna dominates the landscape with smoke rising from its impressive crater.  Cycling on Mt Etna, through lava fields and forrests is an unforgettable experience.
