The excitement is building for the eighth edition of the eternal city's Granfondo.
Starting in front of the Colosseum and continuing to the Altare della Patria, crossing the Imperial Forums, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna and then riding among the Roman Castles, is there any other place in the world with such rich and evocative history? Campagnolo has believed in and has wanted to be part of this ambitious project ever since the first edition, which over the years has grown into one of the world's top events. In order to emphasize this partnership, the Vicenza company has organized a full schedule of activities.
Campagnolo awaits you at the stand which functions as centrepiece of the event, immersed in the fantastic setting of the Circo Massimo. The Campagnolo staff will present products from the new 12 Speed range, in both mechanical and electronic versions as well as the new Campagnolo WTO wheels. You will also have the opportunity to buy selected collector's items, normally exclusively available for sale on our e-commerce site. There will also be a chance to get together with the enthusiasts registered in the Campagnolo Riders Club. Club members can come on Saturday, October 12th at 18.00 to our stand for a toast. The toast with feature the guest of honor Daniele Bennati, who has won stages in every Grand Tour during his career.
"As a bike enthusiast, closing 2019 in this setting, with the Colosseum invaded by cyclists is something that will remain in my heart. Here you can breathe the true passion for cycling, the Granfondo Campagnolo Roma is a unique event and I am proud to collaborate with an Italian sponsor who for years has provided us with essential tools to compete at the highest level. Groupsets and wheels are elements that can most affect the performance of a bicycle and Campagnolo's technical prowess is indisputable, confirmed also by the recent victory of my team-mate Richard Carapaz at the Giro d'Italia.
