My name is Óscar, I am 25 years of age and I live in México. I am going to participate in this years L'eroica for the first time and I am very excited about this. This being said, I have two questions that for some reason, the organizers at L'eroica have not been able to answer me in several e-mails that I have sent in different languages: Italian, French and English. I understand all the rules to perfection, however my main question is:
Are tubular wheels obligatory?
I ask because I am leaving next week on a three month trip to France (To study) and i am taking my bike with me, therefore I would like to know what kind of wheels I should take. Here in México no one uses tubulars because of the horrible roads that we have. In case that they are mandatory, I have a week left to get a pair of tubulars to take with me. If they are not mandatory and clinchers are fine, then I would be more than happy to take my set of Campagnolo Record Strada wheelset with me.
What are the days and hours of the event?
From what I have been able to read: October 5th, 6th and 7th?
So that makes Friday the 5th of October a gathering.
Saturday 6th of October is the day when you can go to the shops in the streets to buy things and see the bicycles in exhibition.
Sunday 7th of October is the day of the event?
Most probably I'm wrong with the dates, but I have done everything I can, sending e-mails and posting on the facebook l'eroica page without any response...
I am going to do the 205 km course on my 1960's Allegro, anyone else from the forum is going to participate?
Thanks in andvance,
