The Maratona is an annual event held in the Italian Dolomites. It’s a seriously bumpy ride, including 7 major climbs. The route is a figure of 8, giving one or two opportunities to cut short if the climbs get the better of you. The Blokes are not considering that option of course.
The Blokes have done this one twice, mainly because the first time we missed the cut on the Long Route. It would have been rude not to go back and do it properly.
