Cyclorijden is al populair en wordt met het jaar populairder. Niet alleen de allergrootste tochten raken snel vol.

For the first time in 20 years, the Feltre granfondo will be forced to close registration after reaching the maximum number of participants.
Today there are 4,400 cyclists ready to come to Feltre from all over the world, but to guarantee the high organizational standards that have always characterized the event, the committee headed by Ivan Piol has decided to place a limit on registration, at 4,500; when that number is reached, registration will be closed. Registration is currently closed but will reopen at the ice rink on Friday, June 13, from 12:00 to 19:00 and Saturday, June 14, from 9:00 to 19:00, with a higher registration fee. In light of the unexpected increase in registration requests (over 1,000 more than last year), to ensure adequate service there will be room for only 100 more riders. The rest will need to wait until 2015 to tackle Passo Manghen.
“We expected and hoped for an increase in registration numbers, but we didn’t expect such a big increase,” said president Piol. “It’s a new record reached in a historic year, which we’re very pleased about. But in order to provide everyone with adequate service, consistent with the level the event is used to offering, we have decided to close registration when we reach 4,500 riders. And we’re almost there. We’re sorry for those who may be left out, but we invite them to come in 2015, maybe signing up a bit sooner. In light of what has happened this year, we are considering the possibility of establishing a registration limit for future editions.”
