Great Times at Garda

Posted by on

The BIKE Festival Garda has got to be right up there as one of the best located bike shows of the season. Situated at the north end of the lake in Riva Del Garda, you wake up every morning to the stunning mountain peaks and historic building all around you. No wonder it's a thriving tourist destination...

 

 

The Garda festival marks the start of the event season in Europe. It's the perfect place to see all of the exciting tech and cool new products everyone has been working on over the winter. For us at WTB, it was the first chance to show our new Verdict tyres to the European crowd, and we were stoked with the response! 


The super aggressive tread was a talking point for many over the long weekend, and it was great to see so many people getting excited to try it out. Here's what Steve Jones from the Electric Mountain Bike Network had to say about it...
 

 

The Verdict Wet living up to its name...

 

The surrounding area boasts such great riding with beautiful views for both mountain bike and gravel lovers alike, so be sure to bring your bike when you visit. On the lead up to the festival the trails were littered with some of the worlds best mountain bikers including the Athertons and the Hazzard racing crew. If that's not confirmation enough for you, the Italy Divide self supported adventure race also arrives just in time for the show. It really is a two wheeled paradise.

 

 WTB supported athlete Scott Cornish popped by to say hello, right after completing the 1222km gravel grinding Italy Divide. Well done Scott!

We want to say a huge thanks to everyone that came to visit our booth at the festival. We sure had a great time, and we're already ready looking forward to next year! Until then, keep an eye on our Facebook and Instagram account to see what other events we are attending and how you can join our awesome giveaways!
Safe Riding!
