Images (and video) from Italy’s Adriatic coast
As you may well have seen from this weeks (big) Weekend Roundup, the third Challenge Family race of the European season took place on Sunday, with the second edition of Challenge Riccione (www.challenge-riccione.it).
As well as a quick turnaround on the official race highlights video (watch that below), our regular photography contributor Jose Luis Hourcade (www.joseluishourcade.com) was once again on hand to capture the action, and bring you the visual experience of a race which also provides an ideal venue for a holiday or few days away in the popular Emilia Romagna region.
Having spent some time in the area myself on training camps in the past, it really is a great place to go cycling in a country with a rich heritage on two wheels and plenty of history in triathlon and duathlon too.
