sacro macello

sm-20sacro macello

there’s nothing to say about sacro macello, is the hardest, toughest, and purest race for track bike I know. caniscioltivaltellina¬†is a bunch of guys hanging around morbegno, a city on top of como lake, they may appear as normal guys with a good aptitude to alcoholics and over buttered food, but there is definitely something more underneath. When it comes to riding they turn into a group of tireless guys with a extraordinary mastery of biking. furthermore they live in between ghisallo and stelvio and they don’t like gears at all. mix all this informations together and you’ll have a blurry idea of what canisciolti are. the best way to know them is to grab a plane / train / car and reach them in valtellina for a good ride, otherwise just follow their blog.

so what is sacromacello? sacromacello is a race with a designed course around the mountain in morbegno surroundings, no big passes but a 50km of continuous up and down with some gravel parts and some 14% climbs. all with brakeless track bikes.

the hardest part was the after race, menu included: wine spreading all over, tons of pizzoccheri¬†, and the notorious “grappa dei cugini” a deadly spirit made by some witches into the darkest part of the valley. the race was won by paga, followed by fabio and valerio. these guys got skills.
