Italy and some Pre Marathon Worlds Media

The SellRonda Hero Marathon in the Italian Dolomites left its imprint on my mind after 84 km and 4300 M Vertical .   One of the most spectacular and hardest races to date with over 4000 racers converging into the small Dolomite village of Selva Val Gardena to take part.    Racing is unreal in Europe with the size, professionalism and enthusiasm of events like this. 

  Huge thanks to Willy and Roberto from the Mongolia Bike Challenge for the excellent support over the weekend.   Next year we will look to improve on the 14th position as it will be host of the 2015 World Marathon Champs.  We now know just how high the bar is set and have a plan to get there.

A full race report is in the mix once recovery sets in.  For now here are some cool links from some recent media coverage:
