Cesenatico is Marco Pantani and everything in his city speaks of him: the museum where his memorabilia are kept, the bronze statue dedicated, the many cycling events for professionals and amateurs named after him. But its myth has been created on the climbs passed the sea and you too, on those same streets, will enjoy the same emotions.
As you know, we are particularly linked to Marco. Not only because we are directly friends of the Pantani family, but because it was one of us: simple and generous, cheerful and bike enthusiast!
Marco climbed the hardest climbs as only he could do, opening his fans' hearts. Maybe it was due to his gaze: eyes of a champion with a fragile soul. So everyone became fond of him, everyone supported Pantani: children with the wheels on the bike, adults and grandparents who loved Coppi and Bartali.
Here is what our Pantani Week consists of:

To remember Marco worthily you just don't need a heart, but legs like steel are needed.
Yes, because during the Pantani Week there will be a lot of cycling:
In short, there will be a lot of emotions for those who have Marco in their hearts.
