The spirit of the event
The “Toscana Gran Tour – Way Point Trophy” is a 2-stage 'Adventouring' sports tourism event, taking place 70% of the time off-road and 30% on asphalt through the enchanting scenery of the Tuscan region. 2 categories to be chosen by participants: “Adventouring” o “Way Point Trophy”. The protagonist of this new adventure will be the Maremma, once the land of butteri, malaria and brigands, and in recent years, also of motorbike adventurers! The Toscana Gran Tour will take place mainly in central Tuscany, between the provinces of Grosseto and Siena. The epicentre of the event will be Follonica, a town with a tourist vocation that overlooks the Tuscan Archipelago. Departure and arrival in Margherita for the two days. We will reach the Chianti and Morellino area on one day, while on the other, we will push on to the outskirts of Siena.

CATEGORIES: ADVENTOURING AND WAY POINT TROPHY
Participants will be able to choose whether to participate as tourists following the GPX track in the “Adventouring” category, or to try their hand at more intriguing navigation and a touch of competitiveness by entering the “Way Point Trophy” category. “Way Point Trophy” is a new participation formula that rewards the orientation and navigation skills of the riders, without the time component.
The basic route is the same as in the “Adventouring” category, but differs at some points: the GPX track ends and for a stretch one must find one's way to the Way Points, received together with the track, in the order indicated. After the last Way Point the track resumes until the following WP navigation section.
Pilots are equipped with a special logger which exactly records the route. Skipping WP's carries penalties and the winner is the one who reaches all Way Points in the given order and makes the closest mileage. Super race and final prizes!!! Train of Metzeler tyres, Garmin watches and for the final classification at the end of the 3 rounds (Sardegna, Toscana, Umbria), the 2025 participation in the “Swank Rally in Tunisia”, the “Swank Rally di Sardegna” and the “Sardegna Gran Tour – Way Point Trophy”
