Saturday to Friday
When you have the chance to ride the EWS in Finale, it’s always special in terms of riding, but you have a weird feeling at the end : “How that could be without the timing pressure ?”
This is exactly what we wanted to run in Finale Ligure, the best EWS trails but without pressure, only fun and ride with your friends !
Why it is so good in Finale ?
It’s sunny all the time, there is about 100 different trails so you can adapt your trail choice to your skill level and there is maybe the best after ride atmosphere in the world (you should try the ROSSESE DI DOLCEACQUA wine with TROFIE ALLA LIGURE and if you’re still hungry the outstanding ice cream !).
We wanted to find a place to stay where you can feel like home, because this is really important for us, this is what we do in Andorra and then we met Milena from Hotel Deutsche Familien … after few minutes of talking we were convinced that it would be THE place for our COMMENCAL HOLIDAYS !
The hotel is 200% bike friendly, a magnificent view of Finale from the terrace, nice rooms and Milena is very welcoming and passionate by the MTB and she is a good cook too … what else do you need ? A good mechanic who can solve all the issues with your bikes ? Of course we have one !
There is one thing that we didn’t mentioned fo now : Roberto Marzucchi
He is a part of the Bici Emocio family, he will be your guide during this week, he knows Finale like the back of his hand, he is a gentleman with a lot of coaching skills and he is italian !
