Velo Veneto - Ciclismo Italiano !

Stories from the Velo Veneto bike racing camp in Castelcucco, Italy

Location: San Francisco, California, United States

I'm a 50 year old kid who loves to race bikes. I operate a bike racing camp in Northern Italy. When not in Italy I have the good fortune of living in one of the best places to ride, the Northern California Wine Country.

Arm Warmers

Been a bit lazy lately in updating this blog. Mi dispiace.

Nothing out of the ordinary to report. Lupo did get 3rd place in a race last Saturday in Francenigo.
Top 10 get bags of groceries !
Last Sunday was the UDACE Veneto Championships. Surprisingly the fields weren't as big as I thought they'd be. But they were very high quality. No results to speak of unfortunately.
I guess the big news around here the last week is the crazy weather we're having. Is it global warming? July is supposed to be hot and muggy in the Veneto. But it's been cool, 60's and 70's with thunderstorms and no humidity. More like the weather in the deep Dolomites near Cortina instead of the sweltering Ventian stuff we're supposed to have.
Also, famiglia Bolzon, our hosts at the Hotel Montegrappa, have a new baby. Letizia was born last night at 10:30 pm. That makes 12 grand children now with another in a few months, and the youngest daughter isn't even married yet.
This coming weekend 10 of us will be doing the Gran Fondo Pinarello
Here's a few photos from the summer so far.
Mariano's Geleteria...great post ride food !
Antonella, she handles reception and the breakfast room at the Hotel Montegrappa.
