Luca Braidot and Martina Berta Italian Short Track Champions

After several years of hiatus, MTB returned to Chies d'Alpago for the final stage of the Internazionali d'Italia (Sunday) and for the Italian Short Track. Let's take a look at the results.

Italian Short Track podium 2023

Too bad they took place in conjunction with the European Short Track which took place yesterday (see the results). In fact, the Azzurri who raced in Anadia in Portugal were missing among those registered.

Italian women's podium XCC 2023

The race took place on a 2,1 km long track but with a lot of climbing: a somewhat atypical Short Track which involved a lot of selection.

The 2023 edition of Alpago Bike Funtastic opens under the banner of Martina Berta and Luca Braidot, the three-day event that brings great mountain biking back to Chies d'Alpago (Belluno) four years after 2019.

The first day was dedicated to the Italian short track championship, the young and spectacular discipline that made its debut in 2018 in the World Cup (last year the first edition of the Italian flag) and which is contested on cross country shortened and on the distance of about half an hour.

In the women's Open competition, undisputed dominance of Martina Berta: the Valle d'Aosta from Santa Cruz, who also wears the tricolor jersey of the cross country and who last weekend in Val di Sole obtained a great second place in the World Cup, he raced head-on from the first meters of the fast Alpagoto track, going on to win in 20'12”. Good fight behind her for second place: the rider from Belluno got the upper hand Giada Specia (Wilier Pirelli), second 30” behind the winner. On the third step of the podium the Chiara Teocchi from Bergamo of the Army Sports Center, at 43 ". The South Tyroleans Greta Seiwald and Eva Lechner complete the top five. «I had been coming, like my opponents, for a very intense month, and therefore there was a bit of tiredness» commented Martina Berta who had won the Italian title in Lamosano cross country in 2019. «The track was very tough, in the first lap I was in a bit of difficulty, then I saw that the others weren't very brilliant and so I tried to force it, immediately taking a good lead. I'll wear the tricolor for another year, it's a great satisfaction. Now I'm going to retreat with the national team, then the tricolor at the end of the month cross country of Maser and then concentrate on the World Championships».

The men's Open race was more closely fought, with a trio fighting for the tricolor "scudetto": the brothers Luca and Daniele Braidot with Juri Zanotti. During the last lap, Luca Braidot (Santa Cruz) prevailed, crossing the finish line in 21'37”. Behind him Juri Zanotti (Team Bmc), 5” behind, and Daniele Braidot (Carabinieri Olympia Vittoria sports centre), 17” behind. In fourth and fifth position, Filippo Fontana from Treviso (Carabinieri Olympia Vittoria sports center) and Gioele Bertolini from Valtellina (Trinx Factory Team). «It was a really tough race, very hard-fought» commented Luca Braidot. «I managed to detach my brother and Juri on the last climb but making the difference was really complicated. Twenty minutes seem few but instead they are really long ».

[email protected] I am a fan of everything that has 2 wheels: at a young age I practiced road and track cycling (Italian Allievi champion). At the age of 18 I passed into the cross country competing at national/international level as an Under23. Past Elite, I made the choice to take things more lightly from a training point of view, and my love for gravity disciplines was born, training me as an FCI MTB instructor and guide. Now I have made passion my profession by managing 2 MTB centers on the island of Elba (Bike Center Elba and Elba MTB), creating the FANTAmtb and telling in an ironic but professional way everything that revolves around MTB thanks to 365mountainbike and 365TV (YouTube'PULITI dentro BIKER fuori').
