Today the ribbon will be cut and the race village will be opened at the Fortezza Medicea in Siena, which will be open tomorrow courtesy of the race’s partners and to allow those registered to collect the remaining race numbers. It’s a Sunday start for the Gran Fondo by Pinarello, which will finish in the incomparable scenery of Piazza del Campo in Siena, after tackling the Sienese gravel roads that have become legendary thanks to the pro race.
An end-of-summer Gran Fondo for 5,000 amateur riders is set to take place on Sunday on the Sienese roads that have become famous thanks to the Strade Bianche professional race. It’s a route with breathtaking views, which has no equal in the world, and one that has become greatly loved by the event’s amateur riders. In fact, in addition to the Italians who attend the event from every corner of the nation, around 20% of the participants come from abroad to Siena to take part, with entrants hailing from 35 different nations.
