2017 - Maratona dles Dolomites Day3


Today we wanted to ride the Sella Ronda (Campalongo, Pordoi, Sella, Gardena). 

The weather was quite good so we went ouit for the climbs. 

My plan was, just as the day before to ride the climbs smoothly and slow. 

Sunday was the day that I needed all my strenght so, after the Pordoi climb, I decided not to continue with the Vincent, Marco and Dionne, but to return the same way we had come


Ride down the Pordoi and only climb the Campalongo from the other side to get back to Corvara. 

As we already rode the day before I wanted to preserve energy for Sunday. 

Back at the hotel I went out for Lunch and meet up with Stefan. He is a great guy, has ridden the Maratona already multiple times. 

This year he goes for the short route, as he is recovering from an  illnes.
