Marcialonga Cycling Craft part II. After being cancelled due to horrible weather conditions at the end of May, the 7th running of the notorious Marcialonga Cycling Craft road race in northern Italy has been rescheduled on Sunday 7 July, 2013. Italian organisers came to the conclusion that the race couldn’t skip this year’s race and managed to rearrange the entire event at the beginning of next month. In addition, entries have been reopened to give an opportunity to join the race also to those who couldn’t make it last May.
Start and finish zone will be located in Predazzo city centre, where spectators might gather to cheer all participants and enjoy the expo area featuring sponsor booths, entertainment and the eventual pasta party.
Concerning the race itineraries, riders will cycle down through the entire Val di Fiemme, reaching the village of Molina and Lake of Stramentizzo, and continue up to Capriana and Anterivo little villages, where the Presenting Sponsor CRAFT Intermediate Sprint has been positioned. A 10k downhill will follow and once San Lugano Pass is reached, next challenge will be the 7k climb (over 17% gradient) to Pampeago Pass (Ski Center Latemar Pampeago KOM). An epic climb surrounded by majestic Dolomites that will certainly mark the long race (Granfondo), as those competing in the medium route will turn back to Tesero and Predazzo, right before this climb. After the pass, there is a 12k steep downhill, riders will enter the South-Tyrol area and climb the Costalunga Pass (up to 1752 meters a.s.l. - ITAS Assicurazioni KOM), before descending back to Val di Fassa and Predazzo, after 116 kilometres and 2.352 meters elevation gain.
Cunico, Di Salvo, Krys, Kairelis, Muraro, Bertuola and Eskov are certainly among the strongest podium candidates, as Gentili, Schartmüller, Vaccaroni, Zogli, Sonzogni and Mazzel are on the women’s side.
The 7th Marcialonga Cycling Craft road race is part of the National Challenge Giordana series and forms the Combined Event ‘Punto3 Craft’ along with last January’s Marcialonga XC ski-marathon and the Marcialonga Running event scheduled on September 1st.
