Hi, I’m Nick and if you have already been on holiday at the Hotel Santoni, you have definitely seen me around. I’m the guy who is always out on his MTB and races up and down the trails of Garda Trentino! I’m very happy as my favourite event will be starting in a few days time: the Bike Festival!
THE BIKE FESTIVAL
Yes, you haven’t read wrong.. I’m talking about the Bike Festival that will take place from 28th April until 1st May in Garda Trentino. It is the top event for all those people who, like me, have made mountain biking an essential part of their lives. The program is full of events: the races, the bike Marathon for lovers of “hard work”, the junior trophy for the younger riders and the Enduro, for the adrenaline seekers!
THIS IS HOW IT ALL STARTS
Day 1 at the Bike Festival is always special, because it makes you feel as if it is always your first time there! A love that starts again each year, which always begins with a black coffee at the Scott truck and then a good wander around the stands. What am I looking for? The latest market trends! I can assure you that you can find them at this Festival !! If I accidently see a stand with energy bars I try and get as many as I can, I absolutely love them! Yes.. I’m talking about those that don’t make you sleep for days! The best thing of the festival? Meeting famous people from the MTB world, who are really passionate about mountain biking, enduro, downhill and all the other important disciplines. The Bike Festival is also special for this reason: there is nothing more incredible than meeting people with the same passion as yours, but with very different experiences. Boredom is completely out of the question!
An example? Holger Mayer, an iconic MTB guide, who is always friendly and ready to tell us about his MTB experiences around the world.
The show comes to an end but definitely not before a visit to the Rocky Mountain stand Yes, I have to admit it, this is my favorite MTB brand, close to perfection! Every year I shed a tear after visiting this store :)
After having recharged my batteries, I make my way back to the Hotel Santoni where as always the Cube Action Team is waiting for me for the amazing MTB tour above Limone sul Garda.
Will I see you at the Bike Festival? If we meet, it will be great to have a chat together and, of course, to drink a toast to the MTB with a freezing cold beer!
