HAT Pavia Sanremo 2019

HAT Pavia Sanremo 2019 with Maxi-Enduro, Enduro Vintage, in the company of Maurizio Gerini, under three days of pouring rain that did not discourage any of the 130 participants and indeed made them have a lot of fun!

A wonderful Adventure Touring event, the first of the famous HAT Series, despite 3 days of pouring rain.

Ben 130 motorcyclists from Italy, France, Switzerland, UK and Canada literally challenged and won the rain, the cold and the mud: unstoppable! The second edition of this adventure-trip, which can already be defined as an international event, was conditioned by bad weather, forcing the organizers to modify the sliding Discovery and Classic tracks, to guarantee motorcyclists the right safety while reaching the destination, while having fun.

The departure from the prestigious Visconteo Castle in the historic center of Pavia immediately saw suggestive passages in the very central Strada Nuova and on Covered Bridge. From this moment on, the real adventure began with the first off-road passages along the banks of the Po, and then along the slopes of the Ligurian-Piedmontese Apennines until the arrival of the first stage of Cairo Montenotte.

From there began the second day of adventure through the ancients villages di Zuccarello (Classic) and garessio (Discovery), where a warm and coveted refreshment awaited us. On firmer ground and with breathtaking views, despite the climate, we reached the Fort of Santa Tecla directly on the sea of ​​Sanremo, welcomed by a beautiful sun (obviously ...) and by Corrado Capra who "rewarded" all of us with the certificate of participation, really deserved in this round!

To make this edition even more special was the participation of the Dakarian Maurizio gerini, present since the briefing of Friday afternoon at the Palazzo del Broletto in the center of Pavia, friendly, nice and helpful with everyone, a real athlete (and what a sight to see him go like thunder). Starting first on Saturday morning, “Gerry” completed his first adventure signed by HAT reaching Sanremo on Sunday afternoon, without skipping any passage on the track!

The saying "common sickness means joy“Because in the end we all had a lot of fun, united by the rainwater, the good times with all the participants and the spirit of adventure that encouraged everyone, even more than the sun. The satisfaction of an adventure lived and overcome, which makes even richer "inside", with gratitude for theadventouring which allows all this.
