Maratona dles Dolomites 2016
I am pleased to confirm the organisers of the Maratona Dles Dolomite have provided Gusto Cycling 30 places for the event , these places are priceless!!….last year 35,000 entered and only 8,500 were accepted..so this is a real coup! This is the most beautiful and stunning 1 day cycle event in Europe with just the most amazing mountain climbs and descents in the heart of the Dolomites….The event takes place on the 5th July 2016…. accommodation is either 4 nights in a self catering apartment or hotels either in La Vila and St. Kassiano……have a look at this short video it will give you a flavour of the event.
The Adventure of the Maratona Dles Dolomites 12th July 1987 – A unique route of 175 Km, with no fewer than seven Dolomite passes to cross; 166 fearless spirits of the bicycle that with great courage and fair play struggle to reach the coveted finishing-line: this was how the fascinating adventure of the Maratona dles Dolomites began, attracting year after year an increasing number of fans, to become one of the most important amateur cyclist events in the whole of Europe. Conceived as part of the tenth anniversary celebrations of the Alta Badia-Raiffeisen Cycling Club, its organisers certainly never dreamt that they had created an event which in such a short period of time would have become one of the most important annual events in the Alta Badia valley, attracting thousands of fans, many of whom enthusiastically take part every year. The great success of the Maratona dles Dolomites is certainly based on the splendid setting of the Dolomites, the striking routes that follow legendary runs where great champions have written a rich and glorious page in the history of cycling. The great organisational effort that involves a whole community with the specific aim of presenting a high level and smoothly organised competition capable of coordinating such a high number of competitors, must not be forgotten. Seven thousand cyclist have taken part in recent years, divided into the various categories and routes offered. One of the reasons for the great satisfaction that encourages us to continue despite all the difficulties, is the enthusiasm and friendship that we find in all the contestants, who every year create not only a competition but a celebration of sport, where it is especially the desire to prove oneself against the magnificent surrounding scenery that remains alive.

The event was fantastic. Both Matt and I said it was the best day we had had on a bike, ever! The organisation was fantastic, especially the e mails and text messages that were sent on a regular basis. We were e mailed photos and videos the next day, which was great. The accommodation was fabulous – with an amazing view from the balcony. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed, which meant we could eat in on a couple of occasions. It was very modern, comfortable and very very clean! The garage facilities were excellent. Thank you for arranging this trip Marco, we have excellent memories of our time there. Sara R.
