WHAT WILL BE THE CHALLENGE
The X LEGEND of ITALY competition (or ITALIA X LEGEND) is a challenge between all the trophies that take place throughout the national territory under the aegis of the Italian Cycling Federation. It is aimed at all athletes who took part during the sporting year and were classified in a useful position (top 5 in the category) and who will be able to represent and defend the colors of their own trophy.
The X LEGEND OF ITALY will be run only on the Marathon course (with the exception of the Junior categories).
The challenge will be run only on the Marathon course (over distances over 70 km) therefore the athletes who will have access to the challenge will accept to run the longest race track. Changes of race tracks are not accepted when registration is closed or the race day, under penalty of exclusion of the athlete.
X LEGEND of ITALY will also be an opportunity for redemption for those who are in other positions in the ranking since it still provides cash prizes for the top five athletes of all categories for both the marathon and granfondo course!
The event will above all be an opportunity for meetings and discussions between organizers and circuits from all over Italy, an opportunity for growth and networking for the benefit of the system and CYCLING!
ACCESSION OF THE TROPHY TO THE X LEGEND IS FREE
it does not involve expenses of any kind but only the commitment to provide the names and contacts of their subscribers athletes, of the first 5 winning athletes of the different categories who will be able to ACCESS THE FINAL AMONG THE TROPHIES FOR FREE!
The organization of the X LEGEND wants to give all athletes a great end-of-season event at the end of the many trophies and championships that have taken place throughout the country. It will be the right end to a season of MTB racing throughout Italy.
FORMATION OF STARTING GRIDS
The starting grids will be formulated on the basis of the category they belong to and according to a criterion of merit.
Each trophy will have the opportunity to field the top 5 athletes of all categories on the grid. The first in each category can wear the leader’s jersey while the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th category positioned on the merit grid will have to wear a distinctive sign (e.g. arm band with color / logo matched to their own trophy of belonging and showing the category). Participation in the event is however open and free to all competitive and amateur categories.
ATHLETES PLACED IN THE TOP 5 IN THE CATEGORY IN MORE CIRCUITS
The athletes placed in the first 5 places of the category in more than one circuit or trophy must represent only one trophy of their choice. The place they will leave vacant in the trophy not chosen will be occupied by the athlete positioned immediately afterwards (in this regard, it can be climbed to the 6th-7th etc. for each category).
