Maratona dles Dolomites: Event Details:
The race can be done in 3 different ways of varying difficulty: the Sellaronda course, the Middle course and the Maratona course. All riders start at 06:30am in the village of La Villa and the Sellaronda course with 4 mountain passes will be completed first. After completing the Sellaronda course riders can either choose to finish the race or carry on and do the Middle course.

As the full Maratona course is basically an extension of the preceding shorter Middle course, riders who want to tackle the full Maratona dles Dolomites have to do the middle course after the Sella Ronda course. All three courses lead the riders through the Dolomites mountains through a mountain range called the Sella group on roads closed to traffic.

This event is big in Italy. It is on Italian national TV and many spectators line the side of the road to cheer you on. This event has all the hallmarks of a closed roads cycling sportive with food stations, closed roads and a great atmosphere.

We stay at a variety of excellent hotels : Hotel Ciasa Soleil, Hotel Conturines Posta and Hotel Lech da Sompunt, all within easy access of the registration, start and finish.
