Sportful Dolomiti

Opened the bicycle racing season with Sportful Dolomiti. Chose medio corsa 125km, which was the right choice today. About 2500m uphill and final time a bit under 5.45. Strava stats here.

Had some hesitation before the start how will it go. I hadn’t had time to ride more than 150km total this year on bike and haven’t also run much. The previous day I had a wild 10 hours drive from Munich to Italy as Brenner pass was totally stuck. Add on top little sleep and weather forecast saying it starts to probably rain mid day.

All fears and doubts however disappeared once I got on top of my Wilier and hit the road with thousands of other riders. The bike rocked and I was sure to check my heart rate didn’t go over 150 but in the toughest climbs. Sun broke out after a few hours and instead of rain it started to heat up. Had just one food & toilet stop. Overall another great day in the middle of gorgeous Dolomites.
