ROAD BICYCLE RACING
Marco Pantani, one of the most popular athletes in this field, used to love training in Alta Valmarecchia before his international races. He used to say: “Il Carpegna mi basta” (“Monte Carpegna is all I need”); such a renowned saying by “The Pirate” made possible the creation of a race dedicated to him, which takes place precisely on the roads of our valley. Our territory is rich in remarkable elevations of over 1000 metres; our up and downhill low-traffic roads will enable you to practise, “breathing a new challenge” at every curve. The “Nove Colli” race is another leading event: with over 15000 participants, it goes through the most charming places of our area and contributes to the creation of new qualified athletes every year.
