Gibraltar Race 2019 has arrived at its destination! Our heroes reached Finisterre with a shorter stage but with more than a few surprises – that’s how it went on the last day!
Stage 14 of Gibraltar Race 2019 reaches the final point, a physical and ideal destination in Finisterre. For the first time the bike challenge that crosses Europe ends here its race that lasted more than two weeks and started in Gdansk, Poland. The last stage of “just” 300km was a real stage, with transfers and special sessions that gave the final jolts to the final classification.
Once in Finisterre, all our heroic riders were celebrated with the delivery of the To.Ka, a symbol of those who manage to finish their personal challenge. A special celebration, then, concerned the winners of the various categories and the podium of the overall standings. This is because the Gibraltar Race is also a competition: it is not a race of speed, but of skill. Motorcyclists must be able to juggle with the navigation and regularity according to which they take penalties every day. Whoever commits the least penalty wins!
In Finisterre the overall winner 2019 was Alistair Allan, British rider on BMW Hp2. On the podium went Ugo Filosa (Honda Africa Twin) and Mark Kinnard (KTM EXC500 Rally).

This concludes the fourth edition of the Gibraltar Race, a motorcycle event that in just a few years has become a reference point on the European scene thanks to a unique formula that combines the great journey with the challenge of navigation and regularity on routes suitable for large displacement enduro. The final classification has added a touch of spice to a truly total and not easy to tackle motorcycle experience. Seven thousand kilometers divided into fourteen stages which have put to the test motorcycles and riders who, remember, are all amateurs, but from today can boast the title of Gibraltar Heroes.
