I've really got into road biking over the last few years, and have enjoyed doing some sportives over here. For next year I'd love the challenge of a big Alpine event, mainly looking at the Maratona dles Dolomites as it sounds a great event & I love the area.
From what I've read these events are massively over subscibed. I would like to enter myself and travel/stay in my campervan and so don't really want to go with a 'tour' (& they seem really expensive!). When do entries open? Is it just a case of entering through the website? Any other advice welcome! And how does it compare to the Marmotte (how hard!) as that's the other one I like the look of?!
