The National Circuit Gravitalia 2016 will be in Bormio at the end of June. That represents a nice comeback and an event not to be missed for all the people who love gravity mountain biking.
Bormio has entered the circuit in 2014 with a constantly renovated track which allows the athletes to ride on an itinerary both fun and adequate for the increasing level of the riders.
The race course has a vertical drop of 600 meters and and a full length of 3 km. The start is located in Valbella (2.527 m), easily reachable by the chairlift Bormio 2000-Cimino.
The finish line is in Bormio 2000 (1,952 m), which will also host the paddock area and the prize giving ceremony within a marvellous natural environment.
The race course, generously updated on the previous edition, is going to be renew again for 2016.
The stage of Bormio represents a last testing ground for the athletes who are going to join the Downhill Italian Champs in July.
