Dalla notte dei tempi...

Imagine, however, that two friends, Lapo Sagramoso and Boris Fantechi decided back in 1986 to set out on May 1 for the mythical Futa Pass, one leaving with a group of braves, Orsola, Giannantonio Gaspari Vaccari from Verona and Bologna, and the other with a sparse handful of faithful from Lugano, Rory Floyd, Tom O’Hara, Fabio Drigo meeting in the famous trattoria below the German cemetery of the Gothic Line.

The Motogiro is born !

On an afternoon lashed by winds, but with warm spring sunshine, we curved down the greened Futa toward Scarperia, passed the rusty gates of Mugello and from Dicomano climbed back up to the Cross of the Moors, meeting other enthusiasts, and finished the ride in a small hotel near Camaldoli, the renowned Rustichello, for the occasion without hot water, in the evening great libation of mushrooms and Casentino wild boar with exponents of the local motoclub.

The next day departure for Maremma, climbing over Pratomagno diving into the newly blooming hills of Chianti, snack at Badia a Coltibuono, shortly after the first Motogiro came to an inglorious end as there was not a free room in the whole area, the chilled Boris group moved towards the Versegge in Montepescali hosted by Stefano and Francesca Guicciardini and the Lapo group, no less tried by events had to move away from Siena to finally find refuge with Elisabetta Pandolfini in the Florentine hills…since then every year early May or early June we have found ourselves in northern, central, western, eastern Italy, Slovenia, Austria and France – at the Motogiro!
