Chairman Michil Costa has chosen this year's theme which, for 2015, will be forgiveness
. Forgiveness, which the Dolomite passes will have difficulty in offering the less well-trained competitors. In fact, the shorter route, the "Sellaronda
", takes in the 4 passes around the Sella, covering 55 km with 1,780 metres difference in altitude and leaves little hope for those who haven't trained.
In addition, you can also choose between the "Medium
" 106 km-long route with 3,130 metres difference in altitude and the 138 km-long "Marathon
" route with 4,230 metres difference in altitude. Demanding but fascinating, where the Giau pass, with its tight bends which have made cycling history, rules the roost.
As always, there will be numerous fringe events in the days before and after the race. Amongst its other activities, the Maratona dles Dolomites - Enel supports the associations "Assisport Südtirol-Alto Adige
", Alex Zanardi's "BIMBINGAMBA
" and "Insieme si può
" to implement educational, rehabilitation and training programmes in Third World countries.
