The Countdown Is Over, 2018 Maratona Jersey Unveil Has Begun
This is the Maratona dles Dolomites, the queen of all granfondos. It’s grueling, breathtaking, beautiful, fun, overwhelming and unforgettable. The Maratona is a celebration of cycling, the landscape of the Dolomites and the area’s unique culture.

For the upcoming edition of the Maratona we have been drawn to, and inspired by, the landscape and nature of the Badia valley. To gather inspiration for the creative process, we asked six athletes and mountain-loving friends to bring their favorite colors or objects found in nature in the Badia valley to the design table.

Over the next few days, we’ll unveil a series of videos that follow the athletes during their training from January through May, and we’ll find out what object or color they brought to the Castelli design table. The final race kit design will be unveiled on Friday evening in our Facebook and Instagram feed.

In episode one, we follow the Italian biathlete Dorothea Wierer on a regular training day at the Armentarola Nordic ski slopes, just a few kilometers away from the iconic and last of the Maratona passes, Passo del Falzarego.

Episode 2. Sneak Peek. Watched Episode 1 and just can't wait for more stunning imagery? Fear not! We've teamed up with former World Cross-Country MTB Marathon Champion, Massimo Debertolis, skyrunner Melanie Ploner, and ski mountaineer Allessandro Follador. Enjoy !!
