Team spirit is a truly important value, at work just as in life...The Microarea Team really believes in team spirit and proved so by taking part, with pathos and passion, in the 24 hour mountain bike in Finale Ligure!

Three colleagues, three sportsman, three friends, one team: Matteo Canessa, Silvano Parodi and Marco Perasso, mountain bike lovers and Microarea developers for the technological platform TaskBuilder.net, raced with the Microarea MTB Scout team at the 24H competition in Finale Ligure-MTB Festival, that was held on Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of May.
The competition, 13th edition since its creation, is a top level European event: a 12 km long track that unfolds in between breathtaking sea and mountain scenarios belonging to the West Riviera, in the beautiful Manie (Savona) plateau. The 24h of Finale is both an important challenge and a first class happening: 24 vibrant hours of non-stop cycling along with a real festival made of shows, food, beer, concerts and entertainment for the sportsmen and visitors coming from all over the world: this year the participants were over 1500, 120 teams belonging to 18 different nationalities.
The Microarea MTB Scout team was spontaneously created thanks to the common passion of Marco, Matteo and Silvano, and thanks also to the support of Microarea, which provided full backing (just like for other events) to its team, funding and valorising the teamwork beyond the company environment!
Our three riders, who have undergone daily training sessions of growing intensity in order to prepare themselves for the competition, took turns together with five further team members in running the 25 laps of one of the most challenging tracks in Europe. Following a brilliant beginning, during which the Microarea shirts battled for the top positions, the wide gap achieved was unfortunately lost due to a series of "hitches" that nevertheless did not cause any drastic consequence on the end result. The Microarea MTB Scout team managed to placed itself in the first half of the ranking, 56th position in between 120 squads!
Once the competition was over, the enthusiasm of the Microarea bikers was evident."The 24h of Finale is a unique experience. The competition is highly demanding but able to provide strong satisfaction and overwhelming emotions" said Marco Perasso. Matteo Canessa underlined the significant loyalty and fairness that characterised the competition: "a true example of fair play, respect towards the challenging athletes and surrounding nature. The words of Silano Parodi instead help us perceive even better the high quality distinguishing the entire event, characterised by "an incredible audience and staff, an organisation that makes this event be a truly special moment to be shared with family and friends".
Everyone agrees: a positive experience that shall "be surely repeated", as all three sportsmen declared almost simultaneously. In fact, while watching the video with the photographs of the event, you can clearly see the strong commitment put into the event and the good time that everyone enjoyed!
Once the bicycles were parked, Marco, Matteo and Silvano set themselves back to work with loads of positive energy to be transformed in new ideas and proposals for the development of Mago.net, ready to take on the challenge with the enthusiasm that distinguishes the Microarea team, the same enthusiasm that will surely "hit" Partners and Users!
