to all those who came to Gaiole in Chianti at the start of the month to
participate in the 2011 L'Eroica Historic Cycle Race.
nearly 4000 entrants this year, it was always going to be a busy day
but special congratulations must go to Sean Caulfield (the owner of To
Tuscany) who completed the full 205km distance, and to Mikolaj
Wierzbicki (the To Tuscany agent in Poland) who completed the 135km
We know that there were a number of To Tuscany guests also racing and we would like to congratulate all of you.
those interested in taking part in the 2012 event you will find below a
list of the rules and the 2011 prices. You need to also keep an eye on
the L'Eroica website for confirmation of the date of the race and the opening date for registration.
Registration for the event is through the L'Eroica website.
It opens at the start of February 2012 and closes at the beginning of
September. Fees increase depending on when you enter - they start at 30
Euros in February and increase to 100 Euros on the weekend of the event
for the final 100 places. Note the field is limited to 4,000 riders
with just 500 spaces allocated to 'foreign' riders so you need to book fast.
There are specific requirements for the bikes allowed to participate:
1. There must be downtube shifters only
2. There must be no internal cables
3. Clipless pedals are not allowed
Bikes that were built before 1989 are preferred, ALL bikes are checked and rules are strictly enforced.
