Rad Race Tour de Friends 2019 – friendly supported by IRIEDAILY
Rad Race “Tour de Friends” 2019 – Round 3
Woooopwooop! The Rad Race Tour de Friends III is already in full swing! This year the event will take place for the third time but for the first time with a new track. The Tour de Friends III will run from Augsburg to Feltre (Italy) from the 7th of July to the 13th of July 2019. 400 riders will cover 664km across the Alps and Dolomites. Rad Race!
The new track is the only big change to the previous tours. Otherwise, the concept remains the same: In principle, it is a cycling stage race in a team. You can start with any bike (except e-bikes, because they are not bikes). However, the focus is not on winning or being the fastest, but on reaching the finish line together with your team and friends and simply having a good time! 🙂
There is no trophy either. just a few Strava Challenges.
The riders actually have nothing to worry about except cycling. Included in the package:
7 days. 6 nights. A fully accompanied trip. All hotels. All breakfasts. All dinners. Hotel shuttle (if required). Driver briefing. All luggage transfers. Experienced bicycle mechanics. Support vehicles. Sweeper bus. Sports nutrition at all check points. Checkpoints. Refilling stations. Block parties. After show party in Feltre. Bus shuttle incl. bike transport from Feltre to Augsburg. Great right?
However, there are no roadblocks or anything else, so helmets are mandatory!
