GREAT DAYS - MTB Event & Fest
Saturday, July 14, the great news of TUTTI FRUTTI TEAM CHALLENGE in Livigno
From July 13th to 15th the Great Days, a new mountain bike event on the trails of Ca- rosello3000, in Livigno (Italy).
Friday, July 13 the event opening and Sunset ride at 6 pm where you can join Hans Rey to one of the best view points above Livigno and get a first impression of the trails and the panoramic views.
Saturday, July 14 is a day of Tutti Frutti Team Challenge, a completely new format combining exploration, tactics and riding. Riders can form a team of 3 to 5 people to ride the trails of Carosello3000 in Livigno in search of checkpoints distributed along the loop of Tutti Frutti Epic Tour designed by the MTB legend Hans Rey. Some checkpoints are situated along the trails, for others you will have to look around, using your imagination and intuition, as a kind of treasure hunt on mountain bike. If you complete the tour you’ll have ridden more than 45 km and 3500 m of downhill flow trails.
How does Tutti Frutti Team Challenge work? Teams will score points for each checkpoint that they reach – and take photos as proves: the more points, the higher chances of winning some of Crankbrothers prizes. Additional points can be earned for random funny or creative photos, e.g. finding a Scottish Highland Cattle or disco- vering the highest toilet in Livigno.
Are you ready? Find with your team a competition strategy and collect the photos. Tutti Frutti Team Challenge is an adventure-event open to everyone: rider teams, groups of friends and families. Individuals get teamed up with new friends. The time to complete the challenge doesn’t matter, you can take your time and enjoy the day, be prepared to spend up to 5 hours to complete the check-points.
Sunday, July 15, to top off the GREAT DAYS weekend, it’s time for 3KUP & DOWN: 1000 meters of vertical drop and a never-ending trail. Wi will do it :)
How many times can you ride the Bikers United and the Blueberry Line in 4 hours?
Also, on Sunday the Wild Goats E-bike tour experience. Ride through the wonderful unspoilt Federia Valley, at the backcountry of Carosello 3000, exploring the ancient paths and the beautiful landscapes along the border between Italy and Switzerland. The tour is tailor-made for e-bikers to give them an escape from civilization. The tour includes uphill and downhill riding in company of “LivignoBike” guides through one of the less populated and the wildest areas of Italy.
And then enjoy parties, music, bike demo and test rides, TransAngeles film premiere (starring Hans Rey, Missy Giove and Timmy C. – bass player of the Rage against the machine), the white night of Livigno and much more at the festival grounds at the base of the new Carosello 3000 gondola.
