Passo Stelvio from Bormio

Gran Fondo Stelvio Camp

2017 Stelvio Gran Fondo Stelvio Santini Camp – June 6 – 12

As seen in Outside Magazine!

In a short amount of time, the Grand Fondo Stelvio has become a favorite event in northern Italy. The deceptively fast roll down the valley quickly becomes difficult with a right turn and a stiff climb. Head back up the valley and another right points you up the fearsome Mortirolo. If that wasn’t enough, your day ends with the 20km challenge of the Stelvio. This event is your chance to follow the pedal strokes of Giro d’Italia heroes with your own escape through the Italian Alps.

Before the main event, this challenging camp will tackle the Gavia, Mortirolo, and Stelvio, and other climbs you won’t believe aren’t already famous. Don’t delay—this camp sells out every year!
