Just a few days before the start of the 33rd edition of the great event in the shadow of the Dolomites.
From Thursday 4th to Saturday 6th July the Maratona Village in San Leonardo in Badia, with 38 operators and 15,000 visitors, has become by now a fix appointment for those who will come to cycle through the UNESCO World Heritage mountains.
Campagnolo will be present at this great event to show the new 12x2 speed groupsets, both in electronic and mechanical version, and the Bora WTO wheels. Our technicians will be ready to answer to all your questions and curiosities. It will also be possible to have a look at the new items of the Campagnolo Cycling Apparel line and the Campagnolo merchandising that can only be purchased in our e-store.
The Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel will be held on Sunday 7 th July, starting at 06.30 from La Villa with the finish line in Corvara. The cyclosportive will wind its way around three routes: The “Long” route stretching 138km and with a 4,230m difference in altitude, the “Medium” route stretching 106km and with a 3,130m difference in altitude and the “Sella Ronda” stretching 55km and with a 1,780m difference in altitude. The passes will be strictly closed to traffic, as is now the steadfast rule for the competition. Cycling along the legendary roads that have made cycling history, without having to worry about cars or motorbikes, is a thing of unparalleled beauty. Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella, Gardena, Giau, Falzarego and Valparola: a magnificent setting where participants can cycle along in the silence and stunning surroundings of this truly unique landscape.
Once again this year, the Maratona dles Dolomites – Enel will be broadcast live, on the national TV RAI 2. Live television coverage is an important showcase for the local area and for the world of amateur cycling, considering that the Maratona’s real driver is represented by the amateur cyclists whose stories play the starring role in the race.
See you at the Maratona!
