Starting priorities, passage to the Galleria dei Saraceni and other new routes, a new stop in Cuneo and the Marathon Prize for those who complete the route respecting the checkpoints: here are all the 2019 news!
The legendary HARDALPITOUR reaches its 11th edition which, thanks to the constant participation of about 500 motorcyclists from over 15 nations, can be defined as Europe’s largest Adventouring event. The departure will once again be from Sanremo, where the Casino of Sanremo will host the participants in its theater for HAT Night and briefing. The Piazzale Dapporto (ex Station), near the sea, will host the HAT Village with the starting stage and the stands of the event partners.
Let’s see what’s new this year:
STARTING PRIORITIES BASED ON THE REGISTRATION DATE – The starting list will be based on the team’s registration date, an advantage in the start procedure which, for the large number of the participants, lasts a few hours.
THE MARATHON PRIZE – Combined with the cited Certificate of Participation, is a further recognition for those who have completed their journey faithfully passing through all the control points. A special prize for those who have shown maximum commitment, respect and perseverance.
A NEW REST STOP IN THE CENTER OF CUNEO – HAT goes to the living room for a break and refreshment in the central Piazza Foro Boario, thanks to the hospitality of the first provincial capital went through. The novelty of contact with the urban public, for a typical mountain road event.
NEW OFF-ROAD ROUTES IN LIGURIA, IN THE CUNEENSE AND IN THE HIGH VALLEY OF SUSA – The scouting work continues to guarantee participants new paths for new scenarios . And this year, new for Extreme are various new routes in Liguria, in the Bardineto and Bormida area, and near Garessio, then a grand finale in the Alta Val di Susa crossing the Galleria dei Saraceni, to reach the 2,800 meters of the extraordinary Monte Jafferau with descent on Bardonecchia. It will be an unforgettable Sunday morning. As for the participants of Discovery, who will instead find themselves on the other hand for a morning refreshment at the magnificent Abbey of Staffarda (12th century) near Saluzzo. The HAT is a research event of historical places, which finds wonderful scenarios and creates wonderful moments.
DISCOUNT ON PARTICIPANTS ‘REGISTRATION 21 The HAT becomes more and more a moment to unite fathers and children in a family adventure. Young bikers are welcome.
The number of HAT 2019 partner companies is growing, such as: YAMAHA, GARMIN, T.UR (the new made in Italy adventure brand), ANLAS, TOURATECH, KLIM, ENDURISTAN, LS2 HELMETS, TCX and PLOTTERFILMS (transfer films) .
And HAT’s commitment to solidarity is not missing. The artisan start-up A MANETTA will be present for the second year, conceived by the Brughiera CàDaMat association for the Busto Arsizio prison: a textile printing workshop (born thanks to Plotterfilms, another friend of HAT) that creates nice t- “two wheels” themed shirts, also sold on the spot. The name and logo combine the passion for motorcycling with the difficult condition of detention, or in any case limiting freedom, with a special irony for those in need of support.
