bassano del grappa. we where racing in “ragazzi del ’99” park, a green area dedicated to the youngest generation enlisted in italian army during WWI, above us the boulevard with lined trees where, back in 1944, the nazis hung up 31 guys. we don’t want to forget.
third stage of Singlespeed Italian Cyclocross “cross del generale” was probably the hardest so far. a long circuit with many technical passages, trees all over and nuts on the ground where mixed with two steep walking sections, a couple of small hurdles, a big one, a stair and again trees. it was fun.
it was special to ride here together with all this friends, it was a kind of tribute to all those guys who lost their life for the freedom we are now enjoying.
