Sunday 29 January appointment in Lonigo, in the Vicenza area, with the non-competitive event on the Berici Hills: you need a bicycle prior to 1987. 1000 enthusiasts at the start. It is the city of the champion hit by a German truck on November 30 while pedaling his gravel bike
White roads, vintage bikes and good food: this is the L’Artica cycling tour, which will take place on Sunday 29 January in the Lonigo area, in the province of Vicenza, with the Berici hills as the setting for the eleventh edition of this non-stop ride competitive. But before the event, all the participants will remember Davide Rebellin, the champion from Lonigo who was overwhelmed and killed at the age of 51 by a German truck on November 30, while he was training on a gravel bike. These in the Arctic are precisely the streets on which Rebellin grew up and turned professional.
