The bike, in ultracycling is very important, yes, but you have to develop other aspects:

  • how to manage unexpected events,
  • riding without any schemes,
  • cycling without planning the hotel or where to stop.

Ultracycling is not a bike tour; travelers plans their daily stages, they stops and starts again the following day.. in the Ultracycling you proceed without scheduling This obliges you to make quick choices and to improvise, and improvisation is the most exciting part of the adventure, without improvisation there is no adventure!!

Dear Francesca
Dear Paolo

It was fantastic to be in Silvi with you and it was worth to wait one year for the start.
Thank you very much for all your energy and passion you have put into this race. The track was very hard but also incredible beautiful. When I do not come back as a rider I will come back as a personal night guard for the self-supported athletes, to keep the crazy dogs away from them . “Joke”.
I wish you all the best, please do not change a lot regarding the track and first May weekend is perfect. I would not go back to April for the date 2022.
If you are in Switzerland, please let me know, we have room in our house where you can stay.
Best regards from Switzerland
Philipp

Bonjour,

De retour de ma formidable aventure je voulais vous adresser tout mes remerciements pour l’organisation de cette course.
Un grand merci aux bénévoles et à toute l’équipe présente le long du parcours, aux check point, vous avez été très sympathique et serviable.
Merci à Paolo d’avoir attendu chaque coureur pour son arrivée, 2H20 dimanche matin pour moi, je suis extrêmement touché par cette attention. Cela montre à quelle point vous êtes attentifs et respectez les coureurs qui se lance dans cette belle épreuve.
Je pense déjà à retenter l’aventure et pourquoi pas dès l’année prochaine.

Encore 1000 mercis à tous.

RACE ACROSS ITALY TEAM

Paolo Laureti Race Manager

Paolo Laureti

Race Manager RAI e Presidente Team

Born in 1976

President ASD Bike & Dreams and RAI Race Manager.

From his mind was born the idea in 2009 to organize in Italy the  Ultracycling first event. Paolo is an Ultracyclist and at that time he was forced to ride always  abroad to participate in this type of events.

Race Across Italy was  born, and since the first edition,  it received the approval of the whole Ultracycling Community in Italy and worldwide.

Paolo, thanks to his technical and organizational skills , created in  few years a great event , he founded a  Bike Team to support the Race Across Italy made of volunteers and bike lovers, forming them to be RAI Race Officials . The result has been  exceptional.

The Race Across Italy Team and Asd Bike & Dreams melt together  in that magical atmosphere that is the RAI.
