The Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel 2018 is near and Technogym will use all the time available to support the participants in their athletic preparation for the prestigious race.
For years Technogym has been proud to support one of the most popular sports: the cycling Gran Fondo. And this time it follows the race up to Alta Badia, the most evocative location in Italy for a cycling race.
Training and getting ready for the queen of the Gran Fondo is absolutely essential if you want to enjoy all the charm of pedalling. Technogym's mission is to contribute to the cyclist's psycho-physical preparation with a dedicated training programme.
On the 1st July from 5.30 a. m., the still cold treads of about 9,000 bicycles will meet in La Villa to face the enchanting and impervious route. The adventure of the Dolomites hides behind the apparent meekness, a series of deceptions, satisfactions, emotions, sweat and enchantment like few other places. Cyclists, mainly Italian for a good half of them, the rest coming from seventy countries around the world, already know the pitfalls of the so-called "Pale Mountains". Even if in truth, in front of the cycling enterprise that awaits them, they are themselves paling!
... As long as the sun in his setting the pale peaks of the Dolomites tinges.
While the Marmarole dear to Veccellio are aglow with rosy refulgence, a palace
Of dreams in the calm of the evening, an Elysium of spirits and fairies...
Cadore, Giosuè Carducci

Train your strength to achieve balance
The Maratona dles Dolomites-Enel this year will have Balance as its theme.
Why balance? The balance originates from a state of awareness and stability that is achieved by remaining firm and objective, even when in the prey of shock, disorder or unbalance.
The whole existence develops through the thrust of internal and external forces. The state of balance does not come from the cessation of these forces but from their sum. Just like in the dynamics of a scale.
So fatigue, effort, exhaustion, testing, seductive and hostile nature are the forces that a trained and centered cyclist can and must oppose his strength to.
