8th edition – 15/19 June 2016
From Pescasseroli (AQ) to Sansepolcro (AR)
The winged house joins the most important Italian Gran Fondo, from 15 to 19 June 2016
Honda Partner of the 20.000 Pieghe 2016: go to the official team!
Between the bikes, there will also be the new African Twin, reference to the category Adventure
A thought goes to the prestige and authoritativeness of the biggest brand in the world, to the technology that is able to express, to the innovation that has constantly brought in the two engineered wheels, writing many pages of the story of motor biking.
Therefore, an official Honda team will be at the start of the 2016 edition of the 20.000 Pieghe (15-19 June), the most important Italian Gran Fondo, a perfect mix between competition and tourism, that uses all the characteristics of normal roads of the peninsula to allow to all participants to challenge themselves, and defy the adversaries and himself too.
An ideal condition for Honda that becomes Official Team Partner of the 20.000 Pieghe and will be present in direct form with their own formation.
Between the chosen bikes, maybe together with other models, there will be the African Twin CRF1000L, considered by many the news more waited of the year, a legendary bike that inherits the triumphs conquered 30 years ago at the Paris – Dakar and that evolves to the point to be a reference of the category Adventure.
Adventure, same as the 20.000 Pieghe, which will start from Pescasseroli to arrive to Sansepolcro with intermediary stages in Norcia and Perugia, for which now there is only need to choose the drivers that will drive the five beauty twin cylinders.
“From 2015 we have admitted inscription to the 20.000 Pieghe of official teams that have the name of official houses or motorbikes brands“ says the boss Daniele Alessandrini
“Honda is the first to accede and it’s a choice that firstly honours us and also bring to the event a technical rate that raises the general quality and rewards every single participant”
“Our participants are passionate of driving, they love adventure but they know how to get amusement from the roads, from the landscapes that we cross, the hospitality and the beauty of the places that welcome us: the official presence of Honda give more stimulation to the confront and enriches the luggage of experiences and stories that everyone will bring home”
The itinerary of the 20.000 Pieghe 2016 is developed on 1.100km more or less, on normal concrete roads open to traffic.
In the Gran Fondo the winner is the fastest but has advantages who can resist to tiredness, who can find the right paths, who can respect the times the best. The classification is determined on the capacity of each participant to be in time at the start, at the break at midday and the final line; to bring back on the road map the localities crossed indicated by the organisation (the path is secret and will be communicated day by day, same as the big international rally); to find the control points and to make registering the passage; to juggle in the abilities trials.
To the 20.000 Pieghe, which is born in 2009, anyone can participate that has a valid driving licence, with any type of bike modern or vintage, with cubic capacity over 120cc.
Important news is represented by the creation, always by the Moto Club Motolampeggio, of the Trofeo Moto Avventura that brings together in an inedited trio the 20.000 Pieghe with two new touristic events, the Moto Italy Spring and the Moto Italy Winter.
Exceptional is the price offered by the organisation for the winner: 5.000,00 Euro, a sum surely tempting and highly rewarding (or a bike with the same value)
