The Sea Otter Europe Girona Costa Brava 2019 Festival presents a new event: the Basso Bikes Girona Gravel Ride by Bioracer. As always, the event will leave from the festival on Avinguda Josep Tarradellas, taking place on Sunday 2 June at 9 a.m.

Gravel races are already a classic event in the annual cycling calendar, drawing more and more followers who call for an increasing amount of routes. Not to be outdone, Sea Otter Europe presents its own.

The prestigious Italian bicycle brand Basso Bikes will sponsor and lend its name to the event. By doing so, they play an even greater role in the festival, in addition to having a stand.

What is more, the Belgian clothing brand Bioracer lends its support to the event by designing and creating the participants’ jerseys, which you can pick up at Bioracer’s stand at the festival.

The event will be 75-km long and, from Girona, will head into Les Gavarres, one of the most iconic and beautiful areas in the region, making it an event not to be missed. Elsewhere, the route will pass close to the famous Els Àngels sanctuary before returning to Girona through the valley of Sant Daniel.

Registration is limited to 200 participants, who must use GPS to complete the ride. Genuine Gravel at the Sea Otter Europe cycling festival.
