What about a road cycling week in Bormio, in the hearth of the Italian Alps? It's a real paradise for us road riders and a week there sounds amazing, right?
Bormio is ideal to ride some of the most iconic and sometimes intimidating climbs in the world, like the famous 48 haipins up Stelvio, the wild and beautiful Gavia Pass as well as the famous Mortirolo Pass.
As a living monument to cycling, the mountains around Bormio, pile up more names every season. Names of active cyclists are next to legendary ones. Names like - in the modern history of Tour and Giro - Fausto Coppi, Charly Gaul, Gino Bartali, Louison Bobet, Felice Gimondi, Raymond Poulidor, Eddy Merckx, Bernard Hinault, Greg LeMond, Miguel Indurain, Marco Pantani, Alberto Contador, Vincenzo Nibali, Chris Froome. Those climbs are in the legend of cycling and putting our flags on top of them sounds just great.

It’s designed to maximize cycling enthusiasts’ expectations of what top-of-the-line cycling is all about. But when the going gets tough, the tough get going.
Epic Sardinia was designed with no regard to commercial aspects. The only focus was on putting together only the nicest, wildest most special roads: those we love most. The result was... Epic. And despite not commercially oriented, Epic Sardinia has become a commercial success too.
Epic Sardinia takes place in an incredible natural setting featuring long stretches, tough climbs, short and quick ascents, flat roads and false flats as well as long winding descents. The tour starts in Cagliari and finishes at the beautiful beach at Bari Sardo.
At its end you’ll have ridden up and down in the glorious Gennargentu, the highest mountain range on Sardinia.
