This Gran Fondo is regarded as the hardest in Europe . Riders come from far and wide to taken on these climbs and there’s never a shortage of entries . Riders can choose between two routes, both starting and finishing in Feltre and tackling Passo Croce d’Aune, site of the monument to Tullio Campagnolo (where the quick release was invented) , as the final climb before finishing in the charming Piazza Maggiore in the historic heart of the city. The “Cima Coppi” of the Sportful Dolomiti Race is the terrible Passo Manghen.
This event started life as the GF Campagnolo and sometime ago a new sponsor came in , the clothing company Sportful and it was renamed. The 2020 route will be a copy of stage 20 of 2019 Giro d’Italia , so it maybe a good idea to have look via this link > youtube With 5500 meters of climbing this will a monster day but one you will look back at with great satisfaction. If you opt for the short route it’s 140km.
The long route of 210km will take you over the following Cima Camp (18.1km) , Passo Manghen (22.2km) , Passo Rollo (19.9km) and finally Croce D’Aune (13.5km)
The short route of 140km will take you over the following Cima Camp (18.1km) , Passo del Brocon (17.4km) , Passo Gobbera (5.2km) and finally Croce D’Aune (13.5km)
