The strong riders of ASD Molla Buni cycling club (some info on their muse, track legend Romolo Buni, here: <http://goo.gl/CSC6a>) based in Milan, Italy have put together a perfect way to celebrate a Merckxian birthday. This is an event not to miss.
Here is the route.
Meeting time: 07:20
Starting address: Milano, north-east intersection of viale Marche and viale Zara (see route map)
For Festum Prophetae we have chosen to honor The Prophet riding the course of the 1971 Giro di Lombardia that he dominated. The course is 265km long with 4000m vertical gain. We will be stopping a few times along the way for food and water, but stops will be very brief (as in: no seated lunches or the like!) and as few as possible so as the ensure a day of full immersion in the pain cave. Participants should embark sufficient rocket fuel to cover at least the first 130-140km. Arrival at the Sinigaglia Stadium in Como; the Como Lago station is a 5 minute ride from the finish for those returning to home base by train.
