In 1987, 166 par­tic­i­pants rode in the in­au­gu­ral Maratona dles Dolomites. Nearly 30 years later in 2016, more than 30,000 ap­pli­cants tried to get in, and 9,000 cy­clists from all over the world rode the fondo in one of Europe’s most im­pres­sive rid­ing re­gions, the Dolomites. If you get in, you’ll meet his­toric climbs, such as Por­doi and Giau. The 138-km route has an el­e­va­tion gain of 4,230 m and a profile re­sem­bling a saw. Re­gard­less of the route you choose, you’ll want to make sure your bike and your body are up for the chal­lenge.
