Discover the essence of the 2018 Giro d''Italia with Italy Bike Tours


Sportful Dolomiti Gran Fondo

June 17 2018
Feltre (BL), Italy

The Gran Fondo Sportful Dolomiti is one of the hardest sportives in Italy. The long route is 136 miles with over 17,390 feet of climbing is a true test for any cyclists. In fact the event's tag line is "Only for real cyclists". There is a shorter 78 mile course which still packs in 8,694 feet of climbing.

In 2009 the famous Granfondo Campagnolo became the Granfondo Sportful. Starting from the town of Feltre (the home of Sportful and Castelli), the route quickly climbs into the Dolomites tackling legendary climbs of the Croce D’Aune and Passo di Rolle. The highest point of the route comes after 85 miles with the Passo di Valles at 6,666 feet. After 135 miles you return to Feltre with over 17,000 feet of climbing in the legs!
