Marzio Deho and Jacopo Billi “pass” the Easter weekend at the Vuelta in Ibiza BTT


This year at the Vuelta a Ibiza BTT, among the 415 registered couples, there are also the two Olympia Marzio Deho and Jacopo Billi, the first a veteran of mountain biking and races abroad the second one is making the first important steps in the world of long distance. It was precisely the Turin who surprised everyone at the beginning of the month had won the Bardolino Bike.

In principle the 3 stages of the Vuelta a Ibiza 2018 seem to reflect the characteristics of those of the past editions. It runs on an island famous for its nightlife but with a beautiful route to be tackled by mountain bike, where you have to be very careful with the punctures.

Departure on Friday, March 30 from Ibiza, but on the island they call Eivissa, since Catalan is spoken on the Balearic Islands. In 71 km (1.700m D +) competitors will reach the west coast, crossing the finish line to Sant Antoni de Portmany.

In the evening everyone will have to return to Ibizia because always from there, the second stage will start on Saturday. Pedaling for 80.5 km they will turn in the north part of the island and then descend to Santa Eularia. Easter Sunday the lighter stage, starting from the seafront of Sant Antoni, soft tour of 53.8 km (D + 1.130mt) and return to the same location.

For Marzio Deho and Jacopo Billi it will not be easy to imitate Johnny Cattaneo and Tony Longo who finished the race in second place last year.
