L’EROICA (UK) from Edouardi Sepulchro on Vimeo.

Organized from 1997, L’Eroica is a “period” cycle rally held through a course which traverses mainly gravel roads. Giancarlo Brocci conceived this event initially to save the “strade bianche” or white roads in Tuscany. He also wished to re-establish the ambience and efforts of a by gone cycling era. So he conceived L’Eroica as a race with four different courses beginning and ending at Gaiole in Chianti.
