ETNA MARATHON | A new challenge to the volcano
Saturday, September 22 the town of Milo, on the slopes of Etna, will host a fascinating MTB race, recognized by the international cycling federation, which will have as its theater the suggestive setting of the slopes around the volcano.
A route that crosses lunar-like scenarios, modeled by lava, with over 17 kilometers of single tracks that force the rider to pay maximum attention in every moment of the competition, even for the suddenly-changing scenario, from gray and bare landscapes to ancient pine forests. Climbs that force you to put down your feet and technical descents will be a further challenge for the competitors of this fantastic event.
In the departure and arrival area an expo village will be available to participants and spectators, starting from Friday 21st September until Sunday, day when the Mini Etna race, a competition reserved for young riders, and the Etna E-Bike Ride, reserved for electric bikes only, will take place.
Kayland has been collaborating for a long time with many outdoor businesses in the area, and also for this reason will be the technical sponsor of the event. Moreover, it will be possible to have an overview of some products directly at the tent located in the expo village. Finally, some of the most beautiful crossover and approach footwear of the collection will be part of the prize pool.
