Round three of the series, EWS Val Di Fassa Trentino, is leading the way when it comes to their eco credentials.
The event has been awarded the Eco-Eventi Trentino certification this year, in recognition of their efforts to create a sustainable and environmentally friendly event. In order to gain the verification, the organisers had to meet 10 requirements including recycling, no plastic and using tap water.
Riders and event crew were all provided with a metal water bottle that came with a QR code that linked to a map, provided by local company Ceda Water, outlining on all the refill points available in both the town and out on the race course.
The Local Organising Committee of the race went further, by ensuring that all event staff accommodation was within 500m of the event village, meaning all crew could walk or cycle to work each day.
