Prosecco Cycling Classic 2012: the fascinating cycling race in the hills of Prosecco di Valdobbiadene
07 October 2012
Founded in 2004, the famous cycling race in Valdobbiadene aims to promote one of the most beautiful areas of the Province of Treviso - the hills of Prosecco - through cycling. Now in its 9th edition, Prosecco Cycling 2012 will take place with some new features, thanks also to the prestigious awards gained due to its growing importance at national and international level.
Starting and finishing in Piazza Marconi, in Valdobbiadene, Prosecco Cycling Classic 2012 promises to be one of the most exciting and challenging Italian cycling events. With arduous climbs, such as Combai, Arfanta or the classic Muro di Ca 'del Poggio, flatter sections and beautiful settings, this great sporting event continues to innovate itself and to excite year after year.
Divided as usual into two race tracks, 70 and 120 km, Prosecco Cycling 2012 will abandon the strenuous ascent of Mondragon and the dirt track of Palu, to include instead the beautiful bike path between Cison Valmarino and Follina.
For those who choose the longer version of Prosecco Cycling Classic, in fact, besides the classic Muro di Ca'del Poggio - 1,300 m with an average gradient of 15% among the picturesque vineyards of San Pietro di Feletto - a part of the route will follow the picturesque bike path that connects Cison Valmarino and Follina: 5 km on tarmac and a dirt track along the River Soligo, where cyclists can ride safely admiring the historic Castelbrando castle and the peaks of the Alps.
Considered one of the most important sports events in Italy 2012, Prosecco Cycling Classic returns year after year to amaze and thrill with the proven formula that offers new features, from new routes to the inclusion, in addition to cycling, of other sports disciplines.
For Prosecco Cycling Classic 2012 many entries are from abroad, a sign of the importance and prestige that this unique sporting event has earned.
