Hell’s Gate Metzeler 2014! In the end, the eleventh edition of the History of Fabio Fasola is fixed in next year calendar.
Write down the date: February 15, 2014. The Extreme Enduro which has made the Extreme being the extreme of the Enduro will be staged again, and as always, at Il Ciocco. Mid February, in a period of the time that "guarantees" the ideal weather-trend platform to ensure that once again Hell's Gate Metzeler transforms the hedonistic scenario of the valleys of the Garfagnana into the unbearably fascinating Enduro ordeal. Without compromise, without indulgences and without revisions. And one thing is certain: not even the eleventh edition will be a paradise!
Last year, a week before the start of the edition of the tenth anniversary, Hell's Gate was in danger. The mountain was inaccessible under a thick blanket of snow. The ice storm had rendered inaccessible even the less dramatic sections of Fasola’s event. Less then three days before the start, the sun had returned to bless one of the most picturesque corners of the Tuscan Apennines, the paths of hell were reopened, and Hell's Gare Metzeler 2013 would become one of the most unmerciful balanced editions. Graham Jarvis won for the third time. Jonny Walker had collapsed at the end of the climb impossible, but he had saved the second place, just a moment before being attacked by Cody Webb. Alfredo Gomez and Ben Hemingway were the last Riders and Heroes to overcome it. Then anybody else.
An edition that matched up to the celebration of the decade, exciting and excited by a stratospheric public and by the new and overwhelming ceremonial that closed the event.
That's it. Every year, from the first one, Hell's Gate has been able to tell us more. The first year Hell’s Gate has provoked a new conception of a discipline and made it a new one; and for ten years Hell's Gate Metzeler opens the Extreme season, with the event that has become its trademark.
Hell’s Gate Metzeler 2014, now it’s sure: February 15th , 2014
