Around 40.000 visitors and 180 exhibitors opened the bike season on the first weekend of May at the 26th edition of the BIKE Festival Garda Trentino. For three days, visitors to the festival area were able to find out about the latest trends of the industry and put their bikes to the test on the demanding test track. Here the big names of the scene meet to cycle together or simply enjoy the reunion after the long winter with an ice cream directly at the picturesque Lake Garda.
A colourful hustle and bustle and our team from Husqvarna Bicycles and Riva veteran Guido Tschugg right in the middle: "Riva is something very special for me: my career started here in 1996 when a buddy persuaded me to take part in the BMX sprint race here at Lake Garda for the first time. In the following year I won the race and prevailed against some big names. So that was the 1st big milestone & today I still like to come here to meet old friends and explore the area with my bike".
Said, done: Despite the changeable weather he chased R RAYMON buddy Fischi over mountains, benches, stick and stone. At the end waits... well, see for yourself:
Husqvarna Motorcycles Factory rider Billy Bolt, who trained for the Enduro season very close to the festival, also wanted to visit Riva and test one of the electric bikes himself.
