When Egan Bernal signed for Team Sky two years ago all experts agreed that the only 22-year-old Colombian is a rough diamond with a promising future ahead. Before the season Egan wasn’t even supposed to ride the Tour. He should have been the dedicated captain for the Giro d’Italia in May. But it was to be different. His crash including a broken collarbone and another setback for the team –...

There are many types of events that you can participate in with a road bike. There are granfondos, sportives, 24-hour team races, randonnées and many other formulas. The only limit is the organizers’ imagination. Then there’s the Maratona dles Dolomites, which, to call it a granfondo is, at the very least, reductive. Like describing Chris Froome as an ordinary bike messenger. (By the way,...

Patience and strength are the key characteristics of “The Bride” in Kill Bill, along with the beauty and gracefulness of Uma Thurman. Patience, because the pursuit of revenge against Bill is long and meticulous. One by one she eliminates the members of the DVAS until the meeting with Bill. Strength (and technique), because the Bride has been trained by the best in the world and knows how to...

By day, Neo is a computer programmer and a model citizen; by night, he’s a hacker who exploits his knowledge illicitly. The encounter with Trinity and the choice of the red pill reveal the truth to him and expose to him the true structure of the world: the Matrix.   The Matrix is everywhere. It is all around us. Even now, in this very room.   On the day of the Maratona dles Dolomites, Passo...

Fifth rule: One fight at a time, fellas. Sixth rule: No shirts, no shoes. Seventh rule: Fights will go on as long as they have to. And...

Cycling is a group sport: for more than half the time, you ride all together, side by side, allowing plenty of opportunity to build relationships. The “group” is even a social set, a community that keeps all the professional riders together. During a Grand Tour, though, there are days when the group does not exist: in the time trials. Stages to be faced alone, with no one to talk to except the...

The last yersey – the one dedicated to stage 20 of this Giro d’Italia – is awarded today. Not because we forgot our home stage, but because we wanted to wait until the very moment we are about to ride the same route on the Sportful Dolomiti Race tomorrow. And to thank everyone who made it possible. Among all the distinctive features of cycling, the one that totally differentiates it from most...

Che bello quando il Giro d’Italia passa sotto casa. Stavolta, tocca a noi di Castelli e, come potrete ben immaginare, non stiamo più nella pelle. La Corsa Rosa è entrata nella terza settimana, quella decisiva per la classifica finale e ciò che ci riempie più di gioia è che non una, ma ben due volte, vedremo sfrecciare i corridori proprio davanti al nostro quartier generale di Fonzaso, dove...

Pensi a Verona e subito la associ agli innamorati. E l’amore infinito è anche quello del Giro d’Italia per la città veneta famosa per Romeo e Giulietta, che per la quarta volta chiuderà le tre settimane di passione rosa che hanno pervaso tutto il Belpaese. Non sarà una tappa banale perché si correrà contro il tempo, come avvenne per la prima volta nel 1981, quando il norvegese Knut Knudsen fu...

Carmine Castellano is eighty-two years old, and he has dedicated thirty of those years to the Giro d’Italia. He followed the corsa rosa every year from 1976 to 2005 and served as race director 17 times. For eleven months of the year he acted as a kind of explorer: Castellano was always looking for new things. He browsed road atlases, consulted friends and experts, and traveled. His goal every...

Carmine Castellano ha ottantadue anni e trenta di essi li ha dedicati al Giro d’Italia. Ha seguito la Corsa Rosa ininterrottamente dal 1976 al 2005; per 17 volte ne è stato il responsabile organizzativo. Per undici mesi l’anno agiva come una specie di esploratore: Castellano era alla continua ricerca di novità. Sfogliava atlanti, consultava amici ed esperti, viaggiava. Il suo obiettivo era...

Ci provi, ci riprovi e niente. Non ti lasciano proprio andare. Oppure ce la fai, sei solo o in gruppetto, e per un centinaio di chilometri sogni di arrivare a braccia alzate, ma senti il fiato sul collo del gruppo che da un momento all’altro può spezzare ogni tua brama di vittoria. La fuga è così, un azzardo, un po’ come giocare al casinò: rischi e magari non ti gira mai sulla ruota...

Una salita così bella da stregare persino…Leonardo Di Caprio. Non è un caso che lo scorso inverno la star del cinema abbia scelto di postare su Instagram proprio una foto del Colle del Nivolet per sensibilizzare le sue decine di milioni di followers sui problemi ambientali del nostro pianeta. Probabilmente, Nibali, Roglic, Yates, Hart e compagnia non avranno tempo di godersi le bellezze che li...

The third Castelli jersey, could only be dedicated to Fausto Coppi for celebrating the stages around Novi Ligure and Pinerolo. Two evocative stages of discovering the places of the Campionissimo life and career. It’s a gloomy day in Novi Ligure. June arrived 10 days ago but it seems like fall has intruded, beating summer to the punch. It’s raining so hard that the sound of the drops pounding...

La terza maglia speciale Castelli non poteva che essere dedicata a Fausto Coppi, per celebrare le tappe di Novi Ligure e Pinerolo, due tappe evocative che riscoprono i luoghi chiave della vita e della carriera del Campionissimo. La terza maglia speciale va a Fausto Masnada. Ecco perché. A Novi Ligure è una giornata lugubre. Giugno è sbocciato da una decina di giorni eppure sembra che...

«Un uomo solo è al comando, la sua maglia è biancoceleste, il suo nome è Fausto Coppi» Quante volte avrete sentito queste parole ormai incise nella storia, pronunciate da Mario Ferretti il 10 giugno 1949. Dopo settant’anni, ancora echeggiano nella mente di tutti gli appassionati di ciclismo, soprattutto di coloro che da bambini ebbero il privilegio di ascoltarle in diretta radiofonica Rai in...

On June 6, 1988, the day after the 14th stage of the Giro d’Italia, one which crossed the mighty Gavia pass in a snowstorm to finish in Bormio, La Gazzetta dello Sport ran the headline “The Day the Big Men Cried”. Indeed it was. It was “only” a stage of 120 kilometers (75 miles) beginning in Chiesa Valmalenco, descending to the Passo dell’Aprica after 70 km, climbing 650 meters (2000 feet) to...

La seconda maglia speciale Castelli, quella dedicata alla Wine Stage Rimini-San Marino va ai cronometristi del Giro d’Italia, persone quasi invisibili ma fondamentali in una tappa a cronometro e durante tutta la corsa rosa. Ecco i motivi. Alla partenza di una prova a cronometro ogni ciclista è circondato. Una condizione apparentemente innaturale, per una prova che vede nella solitudine il suo...

Le lancette tornano a farla dalla padrona. Dopo la prima breve tappa contro il tempo arrampicandosi sul San Luca, la nona frazione è di nuovo una sfida contro il cronometro. Da Riccione a San Marino, in apnea per 34,7 km, con tanto di salita nel finale a rendere ancor più impervia la fatica di ogni corridore.

Most people remember the 1987 Giro for the “polemica” between defending champion Roberto Visentini and his teammate (and eventual winner) Stephen Roche of Ireland. After the Italian won the prologue, and Dutchman Eric Breukink took stage 1a, Roche won stage 1b: a unique time trial DOWN the famous Poggio descent into San Remo. The two later took the stage 3 team time trial with the Carrera...

Bologna, it’s been a blast! Nothing else to say to the city welcoming La Corsa Rosa for La Grande Partenza of the 2019 edition.

Here some pictures from inside the race from our privileged point of...
