FSA and VISION official partners of the first edition of the new gravel event conceived by Paolo Bettini scheduled from 22nd to 24th September 2023 in Pomarance (PI)
Geogravel Tuscany is the first gravel experience dedicated to the Geothermal area that takes participants to discover the most fascinating dirt roads in the Metalliferous Hills, also known as the "Grey Roads". Born from an idea of the Olympic champion and multi-world champion Paolo Bettini, this is a journey through olive trees and Mediterranean scrub, ancient villages and enchanting fortresses, united by the stunning medieval town of Pomarance, the authentic heart of the event. In the background, a unique territory where the hot heart of the Val di Cecina boils, among geysers and lakes that even inspired Dante's Inferno and that still fascinates riders eager to go on great adventures.
Mirrors of crystal-clear water lost in uncontaminated woods, trails light years away from civilisation, a glass of red at sunset and all the authentic flavours of the hinterland. Parts of Tuscany you have never seen, dedicated to those stories yet to be written.
Here are all the specifications of the four planned routes, information and registration methods.
