It was the 30th running of the FSA Bike Festival Riva del Garda

For its 30th running, the judges of the prestigious Bike Show at the FSA Bike Festival Riva del Garda chose
among 40 different models in four different categories to name the Best In Show. And taking the honors
in the competitive eMTB category was the GASGAS ECC 6.


“The Bike Festival Award holds a very special place because the innovations showcased are a major draw
for visitors. And we want to honor this commitment,” emphasized Oskar Schwazer, General Manager of
Garda Trentino DMO. “The numerous submissions show us that we can certainly further develop this
theme in the coming years.”
Mountain bike pioneer and Hall of Fame inductee Uli Stanciu conceived the idea of the Bike Festival at
Lake Garda in the mid-90s and chaired the jury of the Bike Festival Awards 2024. Thanks to him, bicycle
enthusiasts in Riva del Garda have had the opportunity to see and test the latest bikes and e-bikes for 30
years now.

“The original idea of the Bike Festival was to test bicycles in a magnificent location like Riva del Garda
with breathtaking trails. And the Award now continues this fundamental idea,” commented Stanciu.
“During the jury meeting, we evaluated bikes and e-bikes with state-of-the-art technology and attractive
design. Naturally, the Bike Festival Award can and will grow further after its successful debut, thanks to
the extensive feedback from the jury members.”
In addition to Uli Stanciu, the jury consisted of international industry insiders, including Michael Rieder
(Technical Director KISKA), Giampaolo Allocco (Industrial Designer), Hannes Neupert (Mobility Expert),
Alessandro Grisotto (Gravel Expert), Sissi Pärsch (Journalist), Jonny Moletta (Sports Designer), and
Andrea Ziliani (YouTuber & Content Creator).

The GASGAS ECC 6 features a full carbon frame powered by a SRAM Eagle Powertrain with DVO/WP
cone-valve suspension. The $10,999 ECC 6 sits atop a line of three ECC enduro models that include the
$8999 ECC 5 and the $6999 ECC 4.
