Arrive in Venice. Love Velo will be waiting to take you to your hotel if you wish to make use of the airport transfer. Check in, relax and make full use of the spa. Apperitivos are served tonight in the wine cellar, followed by dinner.
Today is a day to spin your legs and make sure your bike is problem free. We wouldn’t recommend cycling for more than about 30km as there is no flat in the area – save your legs for the big day!
You will be able to pick up your registration pack and race number from the organiser’s village today.
We would recommend that you rest today and prepare yourself for tomorrow. Book a massage, use the spa or have a walk into town but stay relaxed. It is important to eat well but don’t forget to ensure you’re well hydrated all day as this will have a big effect on your performance tomorrow.
It’s an early start this morning. Breakfast is served from approximately 5.15am and you must be in your start pen by 6.15am which is 15 minutes prior to the race starting. Please note that if you are not in the pen 15 minutes before the start, the organisers will direct you to the back pen.
Roads are closed to traffic so you will freewheel from the hotel to the race start.
Race face on, good luck!
Check out and catch our transfer back to Venice.
The Dolomites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, provide a unique and spectacular backdrop to your cycling. There is no flat in the Dolomites, you are either pushing hard up the climbs or revelling in the thrilling descents.
Our favourite climb is the Falzarego which offers stunning views across the rugged Dolomites. For descending, look no further than the awesome 20km freewheel from Arabba to the start of the Passo Giau.
