The 2nd edition of the MTB Rally di Sardegna will be held in Ogliastra, Sardinia 7-12 June 2009.


Rally di Sardegna - International Mountain Bike


 Since we live in Ogliastra and Peter mountain bikes there (both documenting trails and racing), and we're keen that Ogliastra, Sardinia gets better know as a mountain biking destination as well as for its road cycling, walking and climbing, we have agreed with the Rally's organisers that we will be the contact-point for English-speaking participants, just as we are the the Giro di Sardegna week-long road cycling event in April.

This is an tough endurance event: last year's Rally featured 370km and 10.000m of climbing in 5 consecutive days' stages. For most participants the aim is just to finish, but there are also world-class bikers, such as the Czech champion Radoslav Sibl, Ironbike winner in 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008, who won the men's race in 2008. The women's race in 2008 was won by Katia Tomatis from Piemonte in Italy, who was second among the women and 26th overall in the 2008 Iron Bike.

In 2009, the event will have 5 stages, Monday 8 - Friday 12 June, with the final prize giving and dinner on Friday 12 June and departures the day after. The organisation will be based in Tortolì, and the final day's stage will finish there.
Race entry costs €600 if you sign up by 31 Dec 2008, €700 after this date, and €400 for accompaniers .
