Il Salto della Capra, La Pinarello Cycling Marathon
In 2010 the Pinarello Granfondo was re-named to the La Pinarello Cycling Marathon. For the 2011 La Pinarello the "Il Salto della Capra", a very difficult climb that one of our readers wrote about last year, will be one of the highlights.
Andrea Pinarello and Valentina Peccolo feature in a very nicely done trailer for this year's event, definitely worth seeing:
Doesn't it make you want to be there?
