What's Cool In Road Cycling

Don’t Miss the Green Fondo in Pomarance on April 9th!

By popular request all registered riders will receive the special edition jersey by Sportful.

The countdown has begun; there are just two weeks to go until the big date with the Green Fondo Paolo Bettini-La Geotermia on Sunday, April 9th, in Pomarance (Pisa) among rolling hills in the “warm heart” of Geotermia in Tuscany. To celebrate the twentieth edition of the race dedicated to the two-time World Champion and Olympic gold medallist Paolo Bettini, his friends from Velo Etruria Pomarance are doing things in grand style.

“The guys from Velo Etruria are doing a great job, so that everything will be perfect: the route, hospitality and the race package. I think it will definitely be a great edition. I want to join them in inviting everyone to Pomarance on April 9th, for what will be a big party. Yes, the race is important, but it is especially a desire to spend time together and have fun over a splendid weekend in the pursuit of bicycling and food and wine,” says Paolo Bettini.

The ROUTE for the Green Fondo will pedal in the tracks of what was the arrival for the second stage of the 2017 Tirreno-Adriatico. Amateurs and cycling tourists will thus get the chance to test their mettle ideally against the performance of World Tour professionals a few weeks ago, when Geraint Thomas triumphed over Tom Dumoulin and Peter Sagan.

The main attraction of the 2017 edition, however, will be without a doubt the RACE PACKAGE with the SPORTFUL BODYFIT PRO JERSEY. The front will feature iridescent colours referencing Paolo Bettini’s two World Championship feats, Salzburg 2006 and Stuttgart 2007, and the sleeves will be decorated with the Olympic rings in honour of his gold medal in Athens 2004. The designer jersey will be signed by Stefano De Lellis, a stylist from Pomarance who dresses international music and showbiz stars like Laura Pausini, Emma, Simona Ventura and many more. It’s a jersey that can be considered a work of art, designed of course in collaboration with Sportful graphic artists. It’s a garment of the highest quality and design, performing and with an excellent fit. All so that you can show up to the starting grid on April 9th, with a fashionable, bold and appealing look. It had initially been promised only to the first 500 registered riders; however, considering the high demand and a boom in registrations, the organizing committee has decided to put in an extra effort and guarantee the jersey to everyone who signs up for the event.

“It’s going to be a long haul from here to April 9th; it means a lot to us that everything run perfectly. With the jersey we decided to try a little harder to make everyone happy, to reward the affection and esteem of everyone who will come here for the twentieth Green Fondo, which will be a special edition to be remembered. To us it seems like the right thing to do for our fans, our club and for Paolo Bettini, who is always close to us,” says the President of Velo Etruria, Maurizio Maggi.

And it’s not all just about the race package; there are many other musts in this 2017 edition. Starting with the HOSPITALITY reserved for participants and their company during the event: registrations, reservations, a cyclists dinner on Saturday and a pasta party on Sunday: all this for only €65.00, with the possibility to extend the offer to relatives and friends who accompany the athlete, so they can spend a nice weekend enjoying sport, food and wine and the nature of the magnificent background provided by the hills of Geotermia.

Furthermore, for those who come to Pomarance by camper, as always the organizers have set up a special CAMPER AREA next to the departure/arrival area. It’s completely free for all granfondo participants who plan to come by camper.

And then there will be PRIZES. The spirit is that of participation and fun, but there will also be plenty of excellent prizes (local food products and technical cycling products) awarded among all participants through a random, 100 prize drawing, so everyone can come! Then of course there will be prizes for the absolute winners in the various categories, men, women and the top teams, as defined by the rules and regulations for the 2017 Giro del Granducato challenge, of which the Green Fondo is the third test.

However, the most important thing absolutely not to be missed after the race is not the prize ceremony but the PASTA PARTY , which is not just a simple plate of pasta but a right and proper red ribbon luncheon centred around wild boar dishes, for a full supply of biological and zero-kilometres local energy after all that effort .
