FIM Touring&Leisure Commission (CTL) closes the New Touring Test events series with the interesting and fascinating last Adventure Touring event. The “Hard Alpi Tour” HAT 2015 will take place in Garessio (Italy) between the 4th and the 7th of September.
Run under the aegis of FMI, it is the 7th edition as a non-competitive motorcycle trip of about 550 km (24 hours) in the Alps mountains of Piedmont and Liguria, mainly on dirt roads. Participation is on teams made up by 3 persons with twin motorcycles or single cylinder over 150 Kg with no time-keeping. Along years numbers increased, reaching 390 participants in 2014 from more than 18 countries (United States of America, Russia, Ukraine).
We had high interest from official manufacturers (Triumph, CCM-Motorcycles) which sent their own teams, and as well alternative energy bike manufacturers (Tacita). International brands will support HAT with their presence and technical assistance (Touratech, Garmin, Red Bull).
