GranFondo Campagnolo Roma, Part II

The Gran Fondo Campagnolo Roma, October 14th, has already recorded its first record: slightly more than a month away there are already 3,000 registered entrants to the first edition. No amateur cycling event in Italy has ever been able to gather such a large number of participants in the first edition.

Countries already represented besides Italy include Canada, United States, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Germany, Great Britain, Belgium, Denmark, Australia, China, Saudi Arabia and Colombia.

Among the confirmed guest riders are five-time Tour de France winner Miguel Indurain, and two time world champion and Olympic champion Paolo Bettini
