Il Team


ASD Machete Team

The trails of the Natisone Bike Arena have been created over the last ten years by the hands of various subjects who were not coordinated with each other, but with MTB as a common denominator. The growing interest in the practice of MTB in all its variants (cross country, enduro, freeride, e-bike, cycle tourism) has led to join the forces and to organize themselves in a more structured way. In this sense, the ASD Machete Team was officially born in 2019 but has existed for much longer as a group of friends united by a passion for MTB. Subsequently, he began to create, organize and manage off-road routes, mainly oriented to the practice of enduro.

Currently, most of the trails in the Valli del Natisone are managed by the ASD Machete Team, by virtue of agreements with the local Mountain Community, the Giulio-Carnica-Trails Commission of the CAI and with the patronage of various Municipalities, including Pulfero, San Pietro al Natisone and San Leonardo.

The Machete Team, in the creation and management of the trails, has always worked according to the rules of IMBA-ITALIA (International Mountain Bicycling Association), of which it shares and supports the “mission”.

Machete Team also collaborates in the organization of many sporting events, both MTB and others, which take place in the Valli del Natisone. First of all, the now classic 749 Avalanche (formerly Matadown), the downhill marathon race that has been running for ten years from the top of Mount Matajur.
