Granfondo Pinarello Camp
Like the bicycle company itself, the Granfondo Pinarello has undergone many changes in recent years. A variety of routes over the past several years has resulted in a course taking in many of the same roads and climbs done on famous local group rides, and the two main climbs include a section of old Roman road and the famous hairpins-in-tunnels of the Passo San Boldo. This event is a celebration of what many consider to be the best riding roads in Italy (there’s a reason so many Italian pros live and train in the area). The combination of flat farmland, Prosecco vineyard hills, and the first big climbs of the Dolomites – all are included in the route of la Pinarello. The event starts and finishes in front of the Pinarello storefront in Treviso.
Like most in Italy, this event will fill up – especially with the limit of 500 non-Italian riders. Our camp offers fantastic pre-event training in the Veneto with daily guided rides, places you in the heart of the Italian cycling industry, enjoys fresh and local Italian foods and wine, and of course offers a guaranteed place in the Gran Fondo.
