See you in 2021

Jeroboam Franciacorta will be back next year

Dear riders,

After many months of uncertainty about what to do, we finally chose to postpone Jeroboam Franciacorta to the next year 2021. Although the most critical phase of the Covid-19 pandemic seems behind us, we know we cannot guarantee an event in line with the past editions. So, out of respect for the participants and the sponsors, we decided not to organize a "half Jeroboam" but to find an alternative proposal and immediately begin to work for next year's edition.

If you had already signed up for the event, we have three possible solutions for you:

  • Get a full refund of the fee paid through ENDU
  • Transfer the registration to the 2021 edition
  • Transfer the registration to one of the confirmed Jeroboams for 2020

We can in fact confirm three events, which will be held in areas less affected by the pandemic and where it will be easier to organize an event according to our and your expectations. You can choose between:

  • Jeroboam Italy - Dolomites - August 28-30
  • Jeroboam Greece - Kalamata - September 25-27
  • Jeroboam Austria - Karnten - October 2-4

In parallel, we thought of a different way of involving cyclists from all over Europe without exposing them to the risks of moving to areas particularly affected by the pandemic and we called this program "Soloboam".

We will invite you to:

  • Ride a 300 km gravel route from home.
  • Choose one of the 150 or 300 km routes with departure and arrival at a 3T Experience Center that we will publish in a special area of ​​the Jeroboam webiste.

Starting from the day Jeroboam Franciacorta was due to take place (September 18) and until the end of the 2020, all Soloboam finishers who demonstrate that they have completed the challenge will receive a 3T race bag with the "Soloboam" t shirt. For those who choose one of the published routes published on the website, the race bag must be picked up at the 3T Experience Center.

JEROBOAM

More than a gravel ride, a journey beyond — Jeroboam 300 leads you on the paths and dirt roads of Franciacorta via remote peaks and valleys into the sublime wilderness of the Lombard Prealps, and on to the shore of Lake Garda. An immersive 300 km, at one with nature.

In 2018 and 2019 the fastest finisher needed around 20 hours, while some took almost 40. Don’t underestimate this route!

JEROBOAM 300

THE "JEROBOAM" IS A BOTTLE OF 3 LITERS: THE EQUIVALENT OF 4 NORMAL WINE BOTTLES.

The event takes its name from the fact that the Jeroboam event was held in Franciacorta, Italian area famous for its sparkling wine.

The 300 km challenge corresponds to the 300 cc bottle, while the 150 cc Magnum bottle and the Standard 75cc bottle corresponds to the respective 150km and 75km of running.

JEROBOAM 300
Gravel What does "gravel" exactly mean? Originally it was a road surface. Then it became a type of bike capable of much more than just riding on gravel. Now above all "gravel" is a way of cycling: discovering new places & people and the fun on the journey rather than just getting to the finish line fast. Jeroboam summarizes, in its four distances, all the possible approaches to the gravel world: from the most adventurous to the most "racy" (although not a race!) For this reason, remember we will give very precise indications on how to prepare your bike for each distance as soon as we will have the final routes.
Festival Not just riding, but also spending time with friends and other cycling enthusiasts. Jeroboam events always feature an expo area and a space to socialize with good music and interesting stories. A complete schedule of the events at the village events will soon be available on this website.
Food&Drink Cycling means burning a lot of calories and we are not convinced an energy bar or gel is the best way to refuel. Good food and lots of drink options never lack in the Jeroboam village. The details about the village kitchen proposals will soon be available.
Camping area It is well known that there is no better cure for insomnia than a long ride. To sleep like a baby, but also to fully experience the atmosphere of the event, you can pitch your tent in the camping area, free for all participants.
Location The village will be set up in Via Verdi in Erbusco, in front of the Town Hall. A list of the services and exhibitors present and a map of the village will soon be available.
