The 2018 year will be a busy year for the Spiquy Team

In March “La Pitturina Ski Race” returns, and in July begins “La Pedalonga”.

Summer is on its way, and while the “La Pedalonga” is wrapping up, the MTB pair-team race, held on July 29, has the Spiquy Team already working to bring back onto the snowy Val Comelico “La Pitturina Ski Race”. After having decided to make the Ski Mountaineering race between the Carnic Alps at the border between Italy and Austria, a  bi-annual event, the Organizer Committee, led by Michele Festini Purlan, has submitted to the Federazione Nazionale Sport Invernali (National Winter Sports Federation), the request to add to the national calendar the ninth edition March 3 and 4th.
“After this period of pause,” said the Spiquy Team president, “We are enthusiastic and motivated to bring back to our mountains  “La Pitturina Ski Race.” The group, after having tackled the SkiAlp World Cup and two editions of “La Pedalonga”, is ready and cannot wait to start  working for the winter events. Unfortunately in the past two years we were not lucky with the snowfalls, so we are hoping the following months, and I say this  for all lovers and workers of winter sports, will be rich with snow.”
The definite schedule of the ninth edition of the La Pitturina is being finalized, but certain collateral events have already been  added. The Winter Lottery will return, where the previous edition the first prize was a car, and also the get-together (snowshoe  mountaineering) “Io c’ero a chilometri zero!”, and much attention will be given to saturday night. The committee does not want to share all the exciting news, but both participants and the public will have fun waiting for the start of La Pitturina.
In regards to La Pedalonga, when it is 11 months away from starting, the Spiquy Team marks in red July 27th and 28th of the  2018 year, but the first important date is September 27, when the registration opens. The available space in this first phase are about 300, in any case the registrations close December 31, 2017.
