DVD ONE

L'EROICA CICLOTURISTICA ★ ORDER FROM THE SHOP

Your first Job is to ride the famous ‘strada bianche’ of the L’Eroica Cicloturistica in the heart of Tuscany. The 15 gravel sections spread across the stunning 205km course seek to recreate the golden age of cycling. Grab your most vintage bike, a woolly top and refuel with bread and brandy while tackling over 3,800m of climbing!


DVD TWO

GRAN FONDO NOVE COLLI ★ ORDER FROM THE SHOP

Your second Job is to participate in Italy’s most popular Gran Fondo, the Nove Colli. Don’t be fooled by the casual beach atmosphere of the event headquarter Cesenatico! This is a hilly Fondo! The nine classified climbs come think and fast and although the highest point at 791m is no Alp, the constant undulations are sure to take their toll on you.

DVD ONE

GRAN FONDO MARCO PANTANI ★ ORDER FROM THE SHOP

Your third Job is to travel to Marco Pantani territory and ride the appropriately named Sportive in his honour. With two of Italy’s toughest and most feared climbs on the agenda – the Mortirollo 12km @ 10.5% and the Gavia 17km @ 8% – you can surely crown yourself ‘King of the Mountain’ just for finishing the impressive 172km percorso lungo.


DVD TWO

GRAN FONDO GIRO DI LOMBARDIA ★ ORDER FROM THE SHOP

Your fourth Job is to travel to the luxurious shores of Lake Como and cycle the rolling roads of the classic Giro di Lombardia Gran Fondo. At 143km and 1,900m of climbing, one could almost call it a ‘casual’ Fondo. Enjoy the panorama lake views over Bellagio and visit the famous church and cycling museum atop the Madonna del Ghisallo climb.

DVD ONE

GRAN FONDO PINARELLO ★ ORDER FROM THE SHOP

Your fifth Job is to go celebrity spotting at the Gran Fondo Pinarello. With stars from racing days gone by, don’t be surprised to be exchanging turns with Miguel Indurain or Michele Bartoli as you power your way back towards Treviso, outside Venice. With your Gran Fondo mission almost complete, why not toast your success with a glass of local Prosecco!


DVD TWO

GRAN FONDO CAMPAGNOLO (SPORTFUL) ★ ORDER FROM THE SHOP

Your sixth and final Job is to relive part of cycling history at the GF Campagnolo (aka Sportlful) staged in the unforgiving Dolomite region where Tullio Campagnolo invent the quick release mechanism on that fateful day on the Croce d'Aune. At 215km and 5,000m of climbing, a truly worthwhile conclusion to your Italian Job mission.
