Maratona Dolomites - who else will be there?

Next July I will be in Corvara for the Maratona dles Dolomites. If you like the most beautiful mountains, and cycling, there's probably nothing better...
We'll be staying at Hotel Pradat.
Who else is there from here?
Cheers,
Alberto

    I'll be doing the route on the 19th. Quite happy to miss the event as mass participation events in my experience have been a nightmare in the past.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Interesting.
    I did it last year, my only sportive so far, and I loved the mass aspect.
    Company, support, food station, car-free...
    Alone or with the mass, I wish you the best.

    Someone else?

    I'll be the only cyclist from our group/family, so happy to hang out for a chat...

    I've done it a few times and it's never been anything less than exceptional. The area really gets into it and it's truly a festival of cycling the whole week.

    Must say the first half was stunning! The balcony segment was in the high 30s so not as enjoyable as it may have been and in turn led to a tough Giau.
    Valperossa was just a slog to complete but an amazing descent.
    Hit 85 km/h a few times so probably ticked all possible boxes.

    Valperossa?
    The passes are Campolongo, Pordoi, Sella, Gardena, Campolongo, Giau, Falzarego.

    Spelling error.
    The Falzarego continues up to the Valparola. It's not much, but it's higher.

    Yes of course.
    I was so tired (and happy) that I forgot it :D
