HAT Pavia Sanremo

To Friday, May 18th to May 20th 2018

The HAT PAVIA-SANREMO is a new tourism-adventure event included in the 2018 National Calendar of Tourism Adventouring of the Italian Motorcycle Federation (FMI). It arises directly out of the famous HAT SANREMO-SESTRIERE, sharing its spirit and philosophy and with the purpose to broaden the horizons of Adventouring by means of new itineraries, new scenarios, new emotions. The idea is to replicate the values ​​of adventure, solidarity and passion, bringing the enthusiasts of moto-adventouring on unexplored roads in search of new experiences. Moreover, the HAT PAVIA-SANREMO allows the Adventouring activity to catch on also in Lombardy, a region with enormous, yet unexpressed potential. The HAT PAVIA-SANREMO will involve three different regions: Lombardy, Piedmont and Liguria, enhancing its spirit of adventure tourism.
The HAT PAVIA-SANREMO is thought up as an opportunity to share with other people the common passion for riding a motorcycle with no competitive ambitions, but with attention to rediscovery of minor road networks and natural dirt roads.

This first edition will be “HAT-style” with two routes: the CLASSIC route of about 450 km, with the night stretch and the DISCOVERY route of about 390 km, with an overnight stay halfway nearby Sassello (in the province of Savona), where the most important refreshment point is located. The difficulty level of the two routes is “easy” with some more challenging stretches. Both routes are suitable for over-150 kg maxi-enduro motorcycles, in compliance with the FMI Adventouring regulations.

From the starting point in Pavia, a privileged position in the Po Valley, the tracks lead participants along the river Po, then they continue southward in the direction of Ovada. Here you will meet the first reliefs of the Ligurian-Piedmontese Apennines and the route will start to climb and descend. After the stop at Sassello, the track continues towards Altare, where the long dirt road of the Colla di San Giacomo will bring the riders to Garessio. From here it is necessary to pass on the Colle di Nava and then the road descends to the sea to reach Sanremo.
In this first edition the number of participants is limited to a maximum of 100 pilots.
The HAT PAVIA SANREMO is an event included in the official FMI Adventouring 2018 calendar.
