Italy at Iditarod Trail Invitational





Ausilia Vistarini became the first female Italian to finish the Iditarod Trail Invitational and she did it on a Crisp singlespeed snow bike. Sebastiano Favaro, her boyfriend and companion for the adventure, participated for the second time in this event, also on a Crisp singlespeed snowy. Both came in with Ausilia’s record-setting time of 5 days 5 hours 50 minutes.

Darren Crisp is a American framebuilder specializing in Ti who lives full time in Italy (maybe I should say he is an Italian framebuilder now), read his story here. His website is www.crisptitanium.com
