Trofeo Montegrappa Expo 2019
The traditional Easter free flight competition is back! This trophy, which has a story of more than thirty years, will colour the skies above Borso thanks to the gliders who will take part in this championship. 250 paragliding pilots are expected to compete against each other from 18th to 22nd of April 2019 to win the desired trophy, which counts for an international FAI2.
Awesome take-offs like Cima Grappa (Panettone), Col Campeggia and Rubbio (north of Marostica), racing tracks towards Asolo, Marostica and the Pedemontana del Grappa (Monte Grappa’s surroundings) and finally the breathtaking landing areas in Semonzo (especially the landing area Paradiso in Via Casale nuovo) will be the background to this unforgettable competition.
The most skilful pilots are going to challenge each other during the five championship tasks, which will be organized by the association Blue Phoenix in partnership with Montegrappa Free Flight.
The championship operation centre will be located in Piazza Paradiso, near the tourist office.
The tensile structure will also be situated here and it will be hosting the Montegrappa Expo on April 20th, 21st and 22nd. This Expo is a specialized fair dedicated to free flight. Equipment and the best brands in the paragliding branch will be the main protagonists along with many surprises: you will be able to see and test the latest innovation in the market!
The fair will officially open on April 20th at 10:00 am and will close in the afternoon on April 22nd along with the Montegrappa Trophy awards ceremony.
As usually, the ‘Gustagiro’ will take place on Monday Easter. This is a great opportunity for you to walk down Semonzo’s streets and paths and taste local typical food during the way, while enjoying the breathtaking views.
We wait for you to spend together an unforgettable Easter in Monte Grappa!
