The Castelli 24 hour race will host 100 teams consisting of 12 riders, staged in the old town of Feltre in the north-east part of Italy June 12 - 13. Riders will complete as many laps as possible on the criterium loop in 24 hours.
This being an event sponsored by clothing maker Castelli, it naturally starts off with a fashion show and team presentation before the main endurance event begins at 10 p.m.
The course is approximately 2 kilometres/1.3 miles long, beginning with a steady climb of 400 metres before descending through some technical corners, followed by a 500-metre stretch of flat road going into the old town of Feltre and the famous cobblestone section.
The event has been organized by Pedale Feltrino Tbh in partnership with Castelli as main sponsor of the 24-hour race till 2013.
