Reliability, technology and fun to ride. Tacita tackled the HARDALPITOUR 2014, a 550 km marathon on the mountains track of Piemonte, in Italy last 6th and 7th of September.
Organized in a team made of 4 riders on the first day, and 3 riders on the second day, the Tacita crew rode the 550 km of the normal route, before the challenge of the Extreme route, a 250km additional track by night in Alta Val di Susa.
From Garessio (CN), situated close to the Maritime Alps, passing through Sestriere and the mountain tracks with a bivouac at 2,000 mt, Tacita T-Race, the first electric off road bike made in Italy, raced with the traditional bikes without any problems. On Saturday September 6, 338 bikes took the start at Garessio and the Tacita team was among them.
“We rode day and night with a correct management of the batteries, that we recharged while we were resting or eating”, comments Pierpaolo Rigo, the man behind Tacita, “with an easy logistics organization, the participation to HAT 2014 confirmed that with our electric bikes it’s possible and enjoyable to ride this kind of marathons. We only had an issue with the road book holder on the first day that made us loose some kilometres. A part from that, everything went smoothly".
From the mountains track to the exhibition halls, the T-Race R Rally will be at Intermot show in Koln, Germany, from the 1st to the 5th of October together with the whole range of Tacita bikes.
