Big numbers, big names, big races. This is the business card with which Italia Bike Cup began its journey. Albenga, Verona, Caneva, Pineto or better still Liguria, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Abruzzo have successfully baptized the project.
With such a representative start, the Italia Bike Cup can only look to an even more exciting 2022 where there will be great news in every organizational facet. Prominent athletes took part in the circuit and one above all the World Champion in charge Jordan Sarrou.
Bikers from more than 25 different nations have plowed through the dirt roads and paths of the race circuits reaching a total of 1.426 presence of competitors lined up at the starting line of the International categories.
And what about the gem of the Live web in all the tests that allowed thousands of fans, despite the closures to the public, to enjoy the stages of the race? It was a very welcome and liked choice. A project that was immediately appreciated, many athletes, stage after stage, became aware of this new reality on the Italian territory made up of organizers of International competitions who, by common intent, have brought the line agreed from the beginning to the end.
All this, at the end of the 4 tests, generated category leaders all in one piece who dressed the jerseys of the Italia Bike Cup.

An organizational system that wanted to give space to everyone, including young people in the Beginners and Students categories as well as Masters enthusiasts. For the kids, the adrenaline of competing on the same tracks made available to the big internationals has meant that a total of 1,562 boys and girls are at the start. For Master enthusiasts, the lifeblood of the builders, a total number of nearly 1,000 units.
Let’s quickly retrace the dates of 2021. It all started in Liguria on 27 February in Albenga (SV) with the City of Albenga Trophy organized by ASD UCLA 1991. The circus then moved in April to Veneto and Friuli-Venezia Giulia passing first from Verona on April 3 with Verona Mtb International , organized by ASD Giomas, and then moved to Stevenà di Caneva (PN) for Mtb Ca Neva Trophy organized by the ASD Team la Roccia. Final act in May in that of Pineto (TE) for Cerrano Bike Land International organized by ASD Cerrano Outdoor where the final awards were also held.
Four days of competition, all international which from the end of February to the end of May, offered many UCI points for the agonists but above all a greedy prize money divided between Elite, Under 23 and Junior both men and women. We just have to wait until 2022 to see the Italia Bike Cup again operational with its new features that will be announced during the next summer.
