Tibidabo Hill Climb, the harder chrono of Barcelona

November 30th was held the first edition of the TIBIDABO Hill Climb. A chrono test in Vallvidrera road to the foot of  Torre de Collserola. With a distance of 5.4 km. and a vertical drop of 320 m . became one of the toughest tests of the year in fixed scene.

There were a total amount of 52 participants, and the ambience was unbeatable. Participants came from different parts of the city, the suburbs, Vic, Igualada and even some of the braves who came from Castellón de la Plana.

The race went smoothly .

The runners reached the goal exhausted after delivering to the last drop of effort throughout the climb. Some meters before reaching the goal you could hear people encouraging and the riders making the last effort to overcome the last slope before crossing the finish line. Really crazy.

The winners of the first edition of the THC were:

1st ULTRA – Giorgio Usai (Josh ) ( 0:13:15 )
1st MEDIUM – Eduard Castanyeda ( 0:14:36 ​​)
1st GIRLS – Nuria Laje ( 0:20:46 )

In the afternoon a party was held at MUTUO Centro de Arte, which also awards were given. The atmosphere was great, lots of people, lots of beer, Jägermeister making friends and, of course, good music.

The result of this challenge for the organizers, with Terrassa Fixed and Two Wheels Fuel 4 Life has been a success. The feedbacks have been very positive, and after all the work we have done, we certainly appreciate it.

The organizers sent us special thanks to the official sponsors of the race: 8bar Bikes, Santa Fixie and Bern , to all contributors ( Mutuo, Enciclika , Creux, Pinza’t , Deathlane , Pista BCN, Sencillo Bikes, Ride and Fly) to the volunteers who participated as an organization, photographers , camera operators , designers , etc. without these, the event could not have gone better.

We’ll wait for the next edition!
