Granfondo fi’zi:k

The Vicenza based cycling saddle maker, fi'zi:k, has announced that it will be organizing a new gran fondo during the first weekend of May, 2010. The gran fondo is being organized to coincide with the popular Valleogra MTB Race, creating a two day weekend dedicated to cycling.

The granfondo route will be 141.5 kilometers in length with a total of 2,800 meters of climbing. The route will wind through the mountains north of Schio and pass through the Valdastico and Val Posina. The climbs are all accessible with gradients rarely exceeding the double digits.

For those who prefer a less prohibitive distance a mediofondo of 83 km with 1765 meters of elevation gain will be available.

Adding to the novelty of the weekend will be rankings and awards to individuals participating in both races, fi'zi:k and the Valleogra MTB Race.

The event website will be:
