Under a torrential rain, the first round of the 2018 E-Enduro Series took place today in Alassio. This morning, among the 150 riders enrolled for the race only 10 forfeited and the remaining 140 were ready to race the reduced race course due to impossible to ride stage 3 and challenging the bad weather conditions.
Since the beginning, it was a very hard fought race but in the end the winner were Alessandro Gennesi (ASD Free Ride Tigullio) for the overall men classification and Laura Rossin (Soul Cycles Racing Team) for the women category while the Team Classification was won by the Team Cico Bike DSB.
The EEM1 category was won by Simone Martinelli (Team Cico Bike DSB), the EEM2 category by the evergreen Andrea Bruno (Tribe Team) and the EEM4 by Francesco Baroni (Team Cico Bike DSB). In the Junior category, Pietro Olmo Garavelli (TEAM LOCCA) took the first position on the podium.
Tomorrow, we will publish a full recap of the race and a complete photo album.
We would like to thank the Alassio Municipality and all the volunteers that made this race possible even under the harsh weather conditions.
