White Water Canoe Slalom Italian Championship U23 Ivrea 2018

Whitewater canoeing is the sport of paddling a canoe on a moving body of water, typically a whitewater river. Whitewater canoeing can range from simple, carefree gently moving water, to demanding, dangerous whitewater. River rapids are graded like ski runs according to the difficulty, danger or severity of the rapid. Whitewater grades (or classes) range from I or 1 (the easiest) to VI or 6 (the most difficult/dangerous). Grade/Class I can be described as slightly moving water with ripples. Grade/Class VI can be described as severe or almost unrunnable whitewater, such as Niagara Falls.

IVREA U23 ITALIAN WHITE WATER CANOE SLALOM CHAMPIONSHIPS 2018

At the request of the Ivrea Canoe and Kayak Club, Hydrostadium accepted an expertise mission in the beginning of 2007. The aim of this expertise was the optimization of the last third of the course with a view to the organization of the World Cup Sprinting in June 2007.

The re-modeling of the end of the course makes it much more attractive. Moreover, the water level is higher and the final threshold with drop safer. ( Source: www.hydrostadium.com

Cycling Tour Vlog: Rosazza Valle Cervo to Oropa Sanctuary Biella Piedmont Italy @fabulousport

The Biellese region is a fabulous land for cycling, offering several quiet roads to ride. Cycling is a great way to explore and discover these beautiful landscapes of the northern Piedmont region of Italy.
In this video I’m showing you a great climb, with quite a challenging gradient, reaching about 15%, but very rewarding and panoramic.

The climb begins once passed Biella, a lovely ride up through the Valle Cervo which is a valley that feels like time has stood still. The ride is very pleasant surrounded by very beautiful characteristic houses and picturesque villages along the river. Just before you get to the town of Rosazza, there’s a left turn on a bridge, then left again towards San Giovanni and Galleria di Rosazza, the tunnel that leads to Oropa on the other side of the mountain. However, whilst you are there, I recommend you cycle all the way to the end of the Cervo Valley, to visit Rosazza and Piedicavallo, both really interesting little villages.

It’s always more exciting to cycle up a hill from one side and descend the other side, as it really feels like travelling further.

The Sanctuary of Oropa has hosted a few Giro d’Italia stage finishes. It’s a great road to climb from the town of Biella, winding it’s way up to the Sanctuary.

Some of the best skies are in Autumn – Fabulous Outdoors

Autumn is the season known for it’s fog and mist. However, quite often the thermal wind blows up and down the valleys, clearing up the sky and leaving as to beautiful sunrises and sunsets.

I’ll add to this post some more images, as now as I’m writing is just the beginning of that period of the year, by the alps of Italy.

Fabio Aru wins in Ivrea – Italian Road Cycling Championships 2017

Very pleased to see the Italian Road Cycling Championships 2017 arriving in my hometown of Ivrea in the province of Turin, Italy. The race started in Asti, went across the Piedmont, through the Canavese area and finished with a 4 laps around Ivrea and up the Serra Morenica hill.

It’s great (for me) to see that this land is becoming more and more considered by the pro riders and the professional cycling event organisers. It offers a variety of terrain perfect for cycling, touring and training, going from undulating landscapes to steeper hills and mountains.

Cycling up the Serra Morenica hill above Ivrea in Piedmont Italy. Many beautiful villages to visit and discover, very characteristic historical and rural architecture, delicious food and lovely welcoming people to meet. This in in image is Nomaglio on the way up to Andrate which dominates the Serra Morenic hill.

There has been a beautiful stage of the Giro d’Italia finishing by the Sanctuary of Oropa, just above the town of Biella, on the Biellese side of the Serra Morenic Hill. The cherry on the cake has been the presence of most Italian top cyclists, and the victory of Fabio Aru, as most of us spectators were hoping.  Vincenzo Nibali was there too, and many other professional cyclists that we usually see on TV when competing in bigger events.

The National Championships is actually a great opportunity to get close to these pro cyclists, to get an autograph or a selfie, and maybe even a few words as they are much more relaxed than in a Giro d’Italia or Tour de France stage.

It was great to see the smile of joy on Aru’s face, an emotional  moment when, on the podium, he dedicated his victory to Michele Scarponi. It’s very touching to see that the Astana Proteam keep images of Scarponi on the Team Bus and that they keep mentioning him, sharing anecdotes & jokes and the good times spent with the late Michele. He was such a great companion and a big loss for the cycling and non-cycling world.

Coming back to Fabio Aru’s victory, on the last lap Dario Cataldo kept a fast pace at the start of the Serra hill climb, to get Fabio in the best position for his winning attack, and it worked to perfection, as the road got steeper ( gradient over 15% above the town of Chiaverano) Fabio went full gas leaving everyone behind. At the top of the climb there is still a fair bit to cycle back down to Borgofranco and then to Ivrea for the finish, but he managed to get a fantastic solo win….well done Fabio Aru!! It’s going to be a promising and very exciting Tour de France 2017 to watch.
