Reviews

Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel

The Maratona dles Dolomites is a single-day sportive that sells out within minutes. The first event took place in 1987 and has been described by National Geographic as passionate, big and chaotic.

The event welcomes 12,000 cyclists each year, who are drawn by the magnificent mountain terrain, challenging route and, no doubt, the TV interest.

The locals get just as excited about the event as the cyclists taking part, lining the roads in traditional dress, playing music and of course cheering as participants pass by. With three routes to choose from, there is something for all ability types.
