[INFO & TRACKS] e-Enduro Pogno #3

The Lacona’s Elba Island round # 2 of the 2019 e-Enduro powered by Specialized is already in the beautiful memories’ bookshelf and the time to fully recharge your e-bike battery to be ready for round #3 of our winning series is coming soon.

Next weekend (May 25th and 26th) it is time to race again in Pogno (NO)-IT in the homeland of the ASD MTB – I Gufi, the first class MTB events Italian local organizer. 

Because of its renewed flowing trails, Pogno is the location of choice for training or just to spend a riding day for many mountain bikers living in the North of Italy. Pogno is also the home turf of Davide Sottocornola, former 2012 Italian MTB Enduro champions, turned e-biker last season and now taking under his protective wings the teammate Simone Martinelli (Cicobikes DSB Team). Simone challenged the reigning e-Enduro champion Andrea Garibbo (Haibike Italy Factory Team) last season arriving 2nd in the overall classification and in 2019 is battling again with Andrea who won the first two rounds of this season. 

The race of Pogno will be 39 kilometres long with 1500 meters of elevation gain with 2 special stages to repeat twice

PS.1 and 3 is called “Chopper Pogno” and is a combination of two historical Pogno’ trails, the Chopper and the Pogno. There, downhill skills and technique will be fundamental and will make a difference. 

P.2 & 4 “SGREOLA” is brand new, characterized by a passage near the Sgreola Falls and even if short, it will physically challenge the e-riders because of its conformation. 

Pogno is easily reachable from Milan, getting the A8 freeway and taking the exit Arona or from Genoa, getting the A26 Genoa Voltri -Gravellona and taking the exit Borgomanero directed to Gozzano-Pogno. The Malpensa Airport is just a 50 minutes drive.
