BICYCLE ARTISTS AT MARCIALONGA CRAFT

News date22.05.2018

Everything is ready for the twelfth edition of Marcialonga Craft that will take place on May 27th starting from Predazzo (ITA) with a group of professional athletes.
The stage of the ACSI National Championship will pass through the valleys of Fiemme and Fassa and on the passes of Lavazè, San Pellegrino and Valles resulting in a battle more exciting than ever. The ski mountaineer Federico Nicolini and the skier Cristian Zorzi, Olympic and world gold medallist in cross-country skiing, as well as Manfred Mölgg, winner of three world championship medals and a special slalom World Cup, will also take part in the race.
The national head of “ACSI Ciclismo” Emiliano Borgna will participate controlling the race in first person. In the ladies’ race attention will be paid to Marisa Coato and Jessica Leonardi. There will be also elite athletes, such as Tony Longo from Trentino, Michele Gazzara and Andrea Comola, who will take advantage of the granfondo itinerary as a test in view of upcoming events.
The competition will also see other competitors of "different sports worlds" take place, such as Gabriele De Nard, from the running world, who won a gold, a silver and two bronze medals in the European cross, the brothers Thomas and Nicolas Bormolini, from the world of cross-country skiing. The Marcialonga Coop of September will close the Combined Punto3 Craft, ranking that will elect the best Marcialonga athletes of the year.
The race will have two different tracks: the short track of 80 km and 1894 meters of difference in height and the long track of 135 km and 3279 meters of difference in height. The favourites are Andrea Pontalto from Verona, perhaps the candidate number one to conquer the "short" track along with Serena Gazzini from Rovereto, passing by Andrea Zamboni from Trentino, superlative when it comes to climbing. Stefano Cecchini, winner of last year, will be the absolute favourite on the "long" track together with Francesco Avanzo and Daniele Bergamo and the "railwayman" Luigi Salimbeni from Bologna, who will probably duel strenuously in the race. Andrea Mazzucco will fight for a place in the top ten, while Davide Spiazzi will try to unleash one of his "solos" that distinguish him. Filippo Calliari will be a tough opponent, while the "Prince of Matera" Tommaso Elettrico will try to win another important race of his career.
Entries are still open, 40 euros until 25th May, while Saturday 26th May you can register directly on site paying 45 euros.
