Last March the international mtb race “Maremma Cup” made its debut in Tuscany. It was a sensational double event that gathered the best mtb bikers inside the Maremma Natural Park, a real paradise for any biker.

Thanks to the great experience of the three-time world champion and Olympic silver medallist Thomas Frischknecht, the 2009 Maremma Cup turned out as a fantastic sport event, other than a promotional occasion for the Maremma region.

The organizing committee, presided by Ernst Hutmacher, together with the Swiss champion Frischknecht and supported by the Chamber of Commerce of Grosseto, Provincia di Grosseto and Monte dei Paschi di Siena Foundation, decided then to launch a multiyear project. In fact, the second edition of the XC event, scheduled on February 27-28 and March 6-7 2010, has moved up to UCI-C1 and C2 status. And the idea is to make it even bigger in 2011.

Beside the two XC competitions, which will once again take place in the typical town of Massa Marittima - on the same circuit that hosted the races in 2009 - four more promotional races are to be held on the streets of other historical towns.

In 2009 the promotional competitions, also called promotional “kermesse”, were two and were won by the Swiss superstar Ralph Näf. The spectacular sprint events both took place in Massa Marittima on the eve of the XC international races, and the excitement along the circuit was great.

Next year, two more “kermesses” will take place on Tuesday 2 March in Grosseto and on Thursday 4 March in Porto Santo Stefano.

Almost a race per day: the 2010 “Maremma Cup” is not to be missed! In fact the World Champions Christoph Sauser and Julien Absalon have already booked their “numbers” at the next year’s event in Tuscany. And they won’t be alone, as some other “big” names have already confirmed their presence, such as the 2009 XC World Champion Nino Schurter, Florian Vogel, Miguel Martinez and the Italian bikers Martino Fruet, Eva Lechner and Marco Aurelio Fontana.

Fontana and Lechner triumphed in 2009 on a rainy day that made the race absolutely spectacular. The same circuit has been confirmed for next year and the whole program of the “Maremma Cup 2010” will be online soon at

For those who love mountain bikes and want to live an entire week with the mtb champions, is time to book your “place”. On Wednesday 3 March the champions will also be available for some bike tours around the beautiful area of Massa Marittima, where you could experience the wine, the gourmet food, the renowned hospitality and the beauty of the fantastic Italian landscapes.
