4.5 kilometers of development and a thousand meters of difference in height separate the Rova of Gazzaniga (362 m) from the top of Mount Poieto (1362 m). The two localities are connected by the Cai path number 521, along which the 521 Vertical will take place.
The invitation for Sunday, October 14 is aimed at both the most prepared riders and simple enthusiasts. The race is non-competitive and upon registration, the medical certificate of suitability for sporting practice must be presented. Registration for the cost of 15 euros entitles you to bib, lunch, package race and transport clothes upon arrival. You register by Friday 12 October by sending the appropriate pre-filled form to the e-mail address email@example.com.
This form can be downloaded from the Recastello website. The start of the competition is scheduled at 10.00 am on Sunday from Piazza San Mauro to Rova di Gazzaniga. The maximum time established is 2 hours. At 12.30 lunch is scheduled and at 2.00 pm the awards ceremony. Taking a look at the times signed on the ascent of the Poieto, we find that the best time trial is the one signed by Antonio Toninelli in 2017: 37'16 ". The female record belongs instead to Samantha Galassi, who in 2015 completed the test in 45'23 ".
Appointment to Sunday, October 14th! For any information on the 521 Vertical consult the official website www.larecastello.com.
