After exporting L'Eroica experience successfully in Japan and Great Britain, we have enlarged the list of Eroica events in the World. We firmly believe that our events can be successful only if they are created and managed by the right people, who share our values and passions, but who also know their Country and area. Only these people can take the essence of L'Eroica and transfer it from Gaiole to the area where a new event can blossom.

The aim of NOVA Eroica is to re-open the L'Eroica permanent route to modern bikes. Some stretches of the route will be timed, but the regulations will give precedence to team spirit and conviviality. Between the competitive sections, the pace will be set by a group of ex-professional cyclists, who will ensure that the speed is such as to allow participants to appreciate the incomparable scenery and food stops.

South of Siena is an area including Val d’Orcia, Val d’Arbia and the Crete Senesi, which the 200 km route of L’Eroica barely touches. This region offers breathtaking landscapes crossed by many gravel roads, a perfect setting for a bicycle ride. This is why we created Eroica Montalcino, whose long route passes through Buonconvento, San Quirico d’Orca, Pienza and many other beautiful villages and towns.
