Nova Eroica California


L'Eroica has never just been about recreating the past. It was originally launched as a "junket" - a “freebie” - for those who had participated in the "Gino Bartali" Granfondo, and it has always proposed routes that are tough, never just a ‘walk in the park’ for the cameras. In 2007, on 9 October, we proposed the Monte Paschi Eroica, the pro version of our event. Since then white roads have been reintroduced into the top echelons of the cycling world, including stages races and the memorable Giro d'Italia 2010 Carrara-Montalcino, with two segments of the permanent route of L'Eroica.

NOVA Eroica California is a cycling race open to all MODERN ROAD RACING, CICLOCROSS AND GRAVEL BIKES with carbon, steel, titanium and aluminium frames. The bikes must have a drop handlebar.  The competitive ride consists of short timed segments along the Costal routes, mostly on white roads. The format involves sections that are considered “transfers” with maximum and minimum times and specific timed trials. Both teams and individuals may participate. The philosophy of NOVA Eroica is to privilege team spirit, with the aim to have most cyclists possible finishing within the time limit. The timed segments will be used to compile the individual ranking and thus to select the best riders (as well as all the women who finish within the time limit)
