Cold and wet across Europe means bed and warm cocoa for those in northern climbs, head a little south like where we were for our group bike test, and it’s still great riding conditions. In this case we hit trail 301, an Enduro trail at Punta Ala Trail Center in the Bandite forest.
This trail has been used for the European Enduro Series and the now paused Superenduro series. The trail at the time of year we visited though has perfect dirt, quite a few pro’s have tackled this challenge, although the day we visited we were alone. This trail has a great mix of tight corners and fast flowing wood sections with a few technical sections. We reckon it is the type of trail that can be ridden by most levels of rider as well, save the very beginner.
Trail 301 is around 3.4km long and takes around 10-20 to descend depending on the level of rider. The start altitude s around 520 metres finishing at around 50 metres. It is located near Punta Ala, Tuscany, Italy. Find the route here
