The Adriatica Ionica Race wants to be the bridge between east and west, the past and the future, the Environment and humanity. It wants to rediscover and promote territories, beginning from the north east of Italy and passing through the eastern countries bordering the Adriatic and Ionian seas, exploring it through racing and tourism. This race intends to take us on a journey on two wheels, passing through ancient roads and learning about the history of the inhabitants and the great civilizations of yesterday.
Adriatica-Ionica Race it is not just a cycling race, it is also a promotional platform for the heterogeneous lands of this region where many local values and traditions have not yet been entirely explored. This initiative aims to be a new way of organizing a cycling competition, through a modern and dynamic format. By means of a variety of competitions that meet todays needs: individual time trial, team time trial, night race, in line race with the inclusion of unmade roads and spectacular uphill arrivals, the race is a cocktail of emotions in which every ingredient is perfectly balanced. We want to rediscover an ancient route, reopen cultural boundaries while imagining the Adriatic and Ionian seas as great bridges between civilizations.
