TWO WHEELS AND A HELMET
02 Lug 2018
OPEN EVENT (with free registration) – Just “two wheels and a helmet”, any type of bicycle and especially many families and children to have fun together.
Opening day dedicated to Marco Pantani.
After about twenty years from one of the saddest stages of the Giro d’Italia for the Pirate but also for the millions of fans, fans and friends who have never stopped following him, Campiglio wants to pay homage to one of the greatest champions who has written the history of cycling.
It was 1999 when, just in Madonna di Campiglio, Pantani was deprived of the chance to complete the Giro, in that year where he was the protagonist with an advantage of almost 6 minutes on his closest pursuer, Paolo Salvoldelli.
This great athlete, who saw his dream of winning the Giro again, has an indissoluble bond with Madonna di Campiglio. Friday, August 31, the territory wants to pay it through a promotional cycle. It is a sporting event but also beneficial, which aims at supporting the Fondazione Marco Pantani onlus, to which everyone can freely contribute.
