L’Eroica started in 1997 because of one man, Giancarlo Brocci, who admired the values of a past cycling so much that he wanted to reconnect others to the heritage that inspired much Italian history, literature, culture, and music.
L’Eroica was also begun as a foundation for the protection and preservation of the last gravel roads in Tuscany. These romantic concepts led to the idea of L’Eroica, an event that initially saw 92 “hunters of feelings and emotions”, as the creator Giancarlo Brocci defines them.
Over the last decade, the spirit of L’Eroica has expanded to the shores of Great Britain, Spain, Japan and most recently the United States.
For the first-time this year, L’Eroica Hispania has launched a photo contest, which allows participants to submit photos during the event which represent the spirit and values of the nostalgic race.
A jury comprised by members of the Cenicero City Council will select the 3 winners of the contest and all images received will form part of a photographic exhibition to be organized in Cenicero in July.
In the meantime, here are some images from previous L’Eroica Hispania events.
