The Cyclokalender team is very proud to announce that there is another great granfondo which has started a partnership with us. The Sportful Dolomiti Race is a great name in the Italian granfondo world. How great? To understand this, realize that the Giro d'Italia organization decided last year to let the penultimate stage run exactly over the granfondo route. This in honor of the 25th edition of the 'Sportful'.
Feltre, a beautiful town in the south of the Dolomites, is the start and finish location. The granfondo has a distance of 204 kilometers and has almost 5000 altitude meters, divided over four passes. The highlight is the beautiful Passo Manghen, a brutal climb. The Passo Croce d'Aune is the final climb. Tullio Campagnolo once invented here the quick release when he couldn't change his wheel due to extremely cold weather.
In addition to the granfondo, there is also a medio fondo. This year the route is 100 kilometers, but includes a wall of 22%. The cyclo is limited to 4500 participants and is fully booked almost every year. The Sportful Dolomiti Race is a must have granfondo for every enthusiast.
As you are used to from us, the new partnership will also provide a nice advantage for the visitors of the Cyclokalender. We will inform you about this very soon. Follow our website and social media.
