A Ride with the Heroes on Monte Grappa

Special price for all the riders of the Gran Fondo Sportful Dolomiti Race

The calendar of the granfondo races is enriched by a new appointment at the end of the summer: the Monte Grappa Cycling, a challenging race for two-wheel lovers that on Sunday, September 7 will take cyclists and amateurs to face the up-hill climb of the Mount Grappa, tackled this year by the Giro d’Italia with an up-hill time trial.


The two routes proposed in this edition are extremely challenging: the long route of 114 km and the short one of 57,9 km. Both routes, starting and finishing in the town of Seren del Grappa (BL) will make you discover, on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War, some of the most significant sites of this historic “mountain sacred to the country”, with suggestive passages.

The Monte Grappa Cycling connects the great cycling with the history of Italy: the climb to Mount Grappa, which feature hard and spectacularly challenging climbs as that from the Valley of Seren up to Col Buratto (18,7 km with a maximum gradient of 20%), will remember the heroism of the soldiers that here, on the border between the provinces of Vicenza, Treviso and Belluno, sacrificed themselves to stop the advance of the enemy troops.

After the race, all the participants can relax and enjoy a full meal, from appetizers to dessert, based on typical dishes of Belluno at the Palagusto stand that will be set up in Seren del Grappa. In the race package, as well as different gadgets, there will be a garment of the valuable collection “Castelli”,sponsor of the event.

Until the 30th of June, all the participants of the 20th edition of the Gran Fondo Sportful Dolomiti Race, scheduled for June 15 in Feltre (BL), can participate to the Monte Grappa Cycling at the special price of 25€ instead of 38€.
