The legendary one reaches its 11th edition HARDALPITOUR which, thanks to the constant participation of about 500 motorcyclists from over 15 nations, can be defined as the largest Adventouring event in Europe. The departure will once again be from Sanremo, where the Sanremo Casino will host the participants in its theater for the HAT Night and the briefing. The Piazzale Dapporto (former Station), close to the sea, will host the HAT Village with the starting stage and the stands of the partners of the event.

Let's see what's new this year:

  • STARTING PRIORITY ACCORDING TO THE REGISTRATION DATE - The starting list will be based on the registration date of the team, an advantage in the start procedure which, due to the large number of participants, lasts a few hours;
  • IL MARATHON PRIZE - Combined with the coveted Certificate of Participation, it is a further recognition for those who have completed their journey faithfully passing through all the control points. A special award for those who have shown maximum commitment, respect and perseverance;
  • A NEW PARK / RESTAURANT IN THE CENTER OF CUNEO - The HAT goes to the living room for a stop and a refreshment in the very central Piazza Foro Boario, thanks to the hospitality of the first provincial capital crossed. The novelty of contact with the city public, for a typical event of mountain roads;
  • NEW OFF-ROAD ROUTES IN LIGURIA, IN CUNEENSE AND IN THE HIGH VAL DI SUSA - The scouting work is ongoing to guarantee participants new paths for new scenarios. And this year, news for the Extreme are various new routes in Liguria, in the Bardineto and Bormida area, and near Garessio, then the grand finale in Alta Val di Susa crossing the Gallery of the Saracens, to reach the 2.800 meters of the extraordinary Mount Jafferau with descent to Bardonecchia. It will be an unforgettable Sunday morning. As well as for the Discovery participants, who will instead find themselves somewhere else for a morning refreshment at the magnificent Staffarda Abbey (XNUMXth century) near Saluzzo. The HAT is a research event of historical places, which finds beautiful scenarios and creates wonderful moments;
  • DISCOUNT ON THE REGISTRATION OF UNDER 21 PARTICIPANTS The HAT becomes more and more a moment to unite fathers and sons in a family adventure. Young motorcyclists are welcome.


  • The number of HAT 2019 partner companies is growing such as: YAMAHA, GARMIN, T.UR (the new made in Italy brand for adventure), ANLAS, TOURATECH, KLIM, ENDURISTAN, LS2 HELMETS, TCX and PLOTTERFILMS (transfer films) .
  • And there is no lack of HAT's commitment to solidarity. He will be present for the second year the start-up artisan A MANETTA, designed byassociation Brughiera CàDaMat for the prison of Busto Arsizio: a fabric printing workshop (born thanks to Plotterfilms, another company that is a friend of HAT) that creates nice “two wheels” themed t-shirts, also sold on site. The name and logo combine the passion for motorcycling with the difficult prison condition, or in any case the limitation of freedom, with a special irony for those in need of support.
