The Organizing Team

The A.S. Capoliveri Bike Park Amateur Sports Association was born at the end of 2009 and since 2010 organizes the mountain bike race, called "Capoliveri Legend Cup".

The race track is one of the main point of the event, much appreciated by all bikers who ride it, both amateur and agonist. Each year it is prepared by the staff and studied to discover the most hidden and fascinating areas of the territory, where the Capoliveri Bike Park stands with its permanent routes of all levels, which trace our history of iron miners.

The growth of the Capoliveri Legend Cup over time since its first edition, born as a challenge as a simple Gran Fondo Point to Point and now included in the most important national MTB circuits, in 2014 was transformed into an XC Marathon national race that allows the race to join the XCM Marathon Tour circuit organized by the Italian Cycling Federation.

In 2016, thanks to the experience gained by the Organizing Committee and the trust placed by the FCI, the "Legend" was included in the official calendar of the UCI MTB XC Marathon Series.
