Dolomiti Classic-Ascotrade-Arabba 2013: Energy runs on two wheels

Arabba (Belluno) 29/07/2013 – In the press room of the second stage of the Tour de Pologne, from Marilleva/Val di Sole to Passo Pordoi, was held the press conference of presentation of Ascotrade, a Veneto-based company for the supply of gas and electricity, as the new Title Sponsor of the eight edition of the Dolomiti Classic, one of the most renowned events for all cycling lovers.

The race, scheduled for September 8, takes place amidst the beauty of the Valley of Fodom and features two different routes. The Granfondo (130 km) that crosses the Passo Duran, Passo Staulanza, Passo Giau and Passo Falzarego and the Mediofondo (80 km) with the Giau and Falzarego mountain passes. The start and finish are both located in Arabba.

“For the Dolomiti Classic and for the entire area involved in our cycling race, it is really important to have a title sponsor like Ascotrade”, says Renzo Minella, one of the organizers of the Dolomiti Classic. “For years, Ascotrade has been deeply rooted in the Belluno’s territory and we are sure that the company led by Mr. Stefano Busolin has a common aim to enhance the area and for this reason the collaboration with Ascotrade has been more natural. I thank Ascotrade for deciding to invest in the Dolomiti Classic, hoping that this collaboration will last over time.”


“Ascotrade has about thirty thousand customers in the province of Belluno for the supplying of gas” – says the President of Ascotrade, Stefano Busolin, – “The company aims to the growth of the territory of Belluno, and for this the designation as Title Sponsor of the Dolomiti Classic event is a great goal for us. Sport is a field that allows to promote the local natural and cultural beauties and Ascotrade always shared the values of the territory in which it works, through initiatives seemingly far from our core business. So it is with satisfaction that we contribute to the development of a unique territory as the Valley of Fodom. As Title Sponsor, on behalf of Ascotrade, I take the opportunity to invite everyone to sign up to the race, scheduled for September 8, that will be a wonderful experience for all, and I hope that our collaboration will last over time.”
