Dear  Bikers,
 let's start from where we left off !!!
We remember well the enthusiasm, satisfaction and happiness of the approximately 2300 participants in the 26th edition that was held  in this magical place full of history called Pollenzo,now it’s time to organize our next edition.
This beautiful neo-gothic complex, commissioned by King Carlo Alberto, which was renews  thanks to  Slow Food and the Municipality of Bra, is now home to the University of Gastronomic Sciences and the Agency of Pollenzo, a special place full of history that will be  the location of the BRA BRA SPECIALIZED, thanks to an agreement signed between the organizers and the top management of this complex. A great result was obtained thanks to the great success of the last editions, which convinced everyone to continue on this path.
We are confident in declaring that few Gran Fondo in Italy can boast such a beautiful location available to the bikers, where the chefs of the University will prepare a Saturday evening dinner and Sunday lunch party; you will be able to visit the Wine Bank with thousands of valuable labels inside, moreover thematic conferences will be held and we will offer a drink to everybody in Pollenzo on Saturday, April 28th at 6.00 pm across the square.

The routes of the 2019 edition will not undergo any particular changes, except that in the short route, where participants increased in 2018; there will be a small variation that will not involve any change in the Mileage and Altimetry.
The new layout of the grids, divided   streets, worked perfectly, it met  the appreciation of the participants.
After the splendid technical jersey of the twenty-five year edition and the windproof technical vest branded with the new BRA BRA SPECIALIZED logo for the 208 edition, the race pack for the 2019 edition is under study.
Finally, as always, at Bra Bra Specialized, the prize money for bikers and companies, internally with the Specialized brand.
   
We thank  all the participants and  all the volunteers of the last edition, without them the last edition wouldn’t have been so successful, I would like to meet you all on the starting bands next April 28th for a new, great, beautiful day of sports and emotions.
  I am looking forward to seeing you all.
The president of the Organizing Committee
Sandro Stevan
