Next weekend will be memorable for the valleys of Fiemme and Fassa (Trentino region, Italy) thanks to the Marcialonga Cycling Craft, which for the eleventh year (start on Sunday, 4th of June, at 8:00 a.m.) will offer a great show on the 80-km and 135-km courses.

State road no. 48 of the Dolomites from Cavalese to Predazzo will stage the initiative "Fiemme Senz’Auto" (Fiemme with no cars) and will be closed to traffic on Friday and open to side events, such as the show with DJ Set and the Reverse and of the professional trial rider Daniel Degiampietro, who conceived a special choreography for his first tour Enerstance, with special effects, smoke machines, lights and soundtracks mixed by expert DJs. Degiampietro has been a volunteer of Emergency for years and has decided to donate part of the income of every show, in order to help those most in need and the organizations working in this sector.

Rich program for the Marcialonga Cycling Craft

The Marcialonga Cycling Craft programme is particularly rich, starting from the Expo village, open all day Friday through Sunday, where visitors will find the latest items of the biking sector, local products and charity initiatives. Aperitifs and DJ set with the magic of music will turn Predazzo into an open-air discotheque where the Bike Test Carrera will offer the opportunity of testing the bikes of this renowned Italian brand. The fifth MiniCycling will start on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Predazzo, with a MTB gymkhana open to young riders up to 16 years; teams will be presented at 5:30 p.m., followed by a live music show with Majazztic.

On Sunday, starting from 10:30 a.m., it will be the turn of ABiCicletta, animated reading for children and of an original workshop where participants will build their own bicycle with the most bizarre materials. 

Entries for the race are still open

At the start of Marcialonga Cycling Craft there will be many important Italian non professional cyclists who will struggle fiercely for the victory, but entries are still open (40 EUR until June, the 2nd) and many others will certainly add. Among others, the race will see the participation of Michele Attolini, Francesco Avanzo, Jarno Varesco, Daniele Bergamo, Michela Giuseppina Bergozza, Thomas Bormolini and Chiara Caminada, Filippo Calliari, Daniele Terzi, Paolo Decarli and Alessandro Forni, Paolo Minuzzo, Andrea Pontalto, Emiliano Borgna and, last but not least, Chiara Costazza and Cristian Zorzi, competing for the “King of the Mountain” title that will be assigned on Sunday with the eleventh Marcialonga Cycling Craft.
