Marcialonga Craft, scheduled on Sunday, June 2nd in Predazzo at 8.00 a.m., has been discovered step after step as a rare pearl, but in a few days the 13th edition will be ready for the challenge with protagonists the strongest amateur riders of Italy (and not only), without forgetting that the cycling race will be valid as the second stage of Combined Punto3 Craft (standing of Marcialonga events) and for the challenges “Prestigio” and “Zero Wind Show”.
One of the most ever competitive parterre is ready to start, with the presence of the last two editions winner, Stefano Cecchini from Tuscany, and the so called “Prince of Italian Granfondo”, Tommaso Elettrico. The duo will have the tough task to control Fabio Cini, a specialist of Trentino mountains and a pretender for a podium place. Games are open, and among others we have to count the local riders Francesco Avanzo and Daniele Bergamo, with the high probability of a choice for the medium distance of 80 k and 2488 meters in elevation gain with Passo Costalunga and Passo Pampeago. For the Granfondo of 135 k and 3900 mt. of elevation – wich will face also Passo San Pellegrino and Passo Valles – the race will see at the start Domenico Romano and Luigi Salimbeni, respectively 2nd and 3rd of the last edition, while in the women field Deborah Rosa, 2nd in 2018, could have her revenge. On the short competition we point out Riccardo Zanrossi, Andrea Pontalto and Alessio Pareschi, the podium of last year. In the end, on the pink race we mention Jessica Leonardi, winner of women 80 k in 2018, but an expert also of the long distances as well as Barbara Zambotti, 2nd in the 12th edition and present also this year.
