Chronicle of Trials:
The start of the first stage of transfer (TS) of enduro, began at 14:00, from the urban center of the City, at the time of the first of four special stages (PSC), that was reached by climbing through sandy single track forest, until you start, placed above the 800 meters of altitude. The track was fast to go, with sandy bottom
mixed with rock, but, after all, compact. At the end of PSC1 the fastest time was achieved by the athlete of Agrigento MTB Racing Team Olympia, Fabio Rizzo, who seized the time to 2 '28 " 6 cents; second to 6 second, another athlete Agrigento, Fabio Spirio and third, the young local athlete in Luke Nose 6 seconds and 2 tenths;
He returned to the top attraversola TS2, the longest of the path, which reported on the mountain to face the second PSC that retraced the same track on the first, but become more insidious, because of the sandy bottom crumbled, furrowed and torn by the many steps "aggressive" in the first round of bikers; fastest time once again scored by Fabio Rizzo who aggiudicava the second PSC with time "copied" to 2'28 "06 cents, second of the new agrigentino Fabio Spirio con2'29 "9 cents, third to a handful of cents in the second, the Calabrian Paul Nicotra.
Between the second and third tests was prepared a "paddock" for refreshments and technical assistance to the bike, giving some 'refreshment athletes "dazzled" by the "heat wave" that has accompanied the event for the whole day.
With the third TS, we moved to the opposite side, and after about an hour's ascent, we reached the start of the third CSF, that at 17:00 saw the point in taking away the first competitor. The sandy bottom made it more difficult both in the "disconnect" in which "raises" and control of the bike was always drawn to the limit. To set the fastest time we thought a "local", Salvatore nose blocked the stopwatch on the time of 2'18 "0 cents; according to Fabio Rizzo con2'18 "6 cents and the third place he was always a" local ", Luca Naso con2'18 "9 centesimi.
He returned on the fourth and final special stage (PSC4), that was repeated on the same route of the third test, transformed in the meantime, in “arenile” (but there were no chairs, in compensation, was the umbrella of the timekeepers) due to the friability of the sandy soil; and it is precisely because the fund insidious, that there has been some "dips" with final fall solved, luckily, with some slight excoriation.
The journey time is stamped from a lower nose with dazzling Luke 2'16 "3 cents which could not be on the top step of the podium for the 20″ penalty charged to it for the lack of elbow, second brother Salvatore con2'17 "7 cents, also with 20″ penalty for the same reason Luke,third Fabio Rizzo con2'19 "3 cents.
