“Splitboarding and enduro biking are part of me, they define who I am. For me, they are more than just a way to escape crowded and overused resorts. They are a way to push limits and get out of the comfort zone, a way to explore and to discover. That perfect mix of silence and grandeur that only a mountain can offer, the freedom to climb on your own, to define your route and follow it, the power to use your body strength to move forward and to enjoy downhill rides and fresh turns, no matter what season is out there – this is what defines me and what I want to share. The path is the same, only the texture is different.”
“I caught the cycling bug at a very early age riding with my brothers near my childhood home. Those endless spring days of careless riding left me hooked and from a long time I have been an all around lover of outdoor activities such as scuba diving, windsurfing, biking and cycling.
Being a Marine biologist in my daily life I strive to cultivate my love for travel, cycling, nature and the sea; sometimes I do a lot of field work and immersions, so, if I don’t answer your call right away, I have a pretty good excuse for that!”
“I was Born 32 years ago from Sardinian father and Canadian mother. Since I was boy, I followed up my passion for dynamic sports and outdoor activities like Surfing”
Sardinia is not only about summer tourists!
Far from the crowded resorts and the hustle of tourists starving for sun and waves, the mountains are full of tracks, from easy trails with amazing views to technical trails with tricky jumps. Its gravity mountain bike community is so well shaped that it even accommodates around 8 enduro and 5 downhill competitions per year.
The shore tracks are anything but flat. The mixed terrain, the rock garden, the rhythm breaks, the succession of ups and downs will take out the best of you. But in the same time they will give you the chance to admire the surroundings, the turquoise bays and the smiles of your mates when they are plunging into the sea.
“Mercì pour tout l’efficacité, la compétence, la sérieuse, le talent, la patience et…. la gentilesse!
“Our guide Marius was excellent both in guiding and giving riding tips. He provided a wonderful excursion up into the Carpathian mountains. We went higher than I thought I could ride, and his instructions improved my mountain biking skills, both climbing and descending. What a lovely trip we had! Thank you and I highly recommend this tour. ”
