I posted a lengthy reply but the forum police seem to have censored me!
I arrived in Bolzano this evening and am up for riding my 4th Giro Dolomiti
Tomorrow (Friday 22 July 2016) I aim to visit some friends in Val di Fiemme , but I will register at the Fiero (Event HQ) on Saturday at about 09:00 - I could meet you then and go for a light cycle for coffee and lunch.... If you wish.
To the best of my knowledge I am the only Irish rider .
I have a good knowledge of cycling in the Dolomites - I've been coming to the region since 2002 (when I joined WW!!)
I can give you all the advice you want
I will be at the HQ on Saturday at 09:00...ish on Saturday and I'll be wearing my club kit - Fluoro Yellow Dave Kane Cycles
If you wish make yourself known and we can have a leg turning cycle, swap stories and have a coffee... I'll buy
I look forward to meeting you
Regards
Enda Marron

Great! I'm going there with my girlfriend so not really sure about our itinerary, but I will put it in my notes :) We arrive this (Friday) evening and we'll definitely go for a spin on Saturday. I'll be on a red Colnago EP.

Hehe ;) Thanks Enda! Cool to meet a fellow weenie.

For those who were not there; really great event with good atmosphere and good food. Low shoulders but at the same time a good competitive field. I hope to go back next year or some other time and will definitely recommend it to others. There were also a lot of photographers around during the stages. A few of my pictures here (which we could buy at the end):

Nice Stelvio pic, there were photographers on the mountain the day I rode up but the pics were nothing like that!

Only hear good things about the events out that way

Sorry, misread that. At first I thought it said "how's the epo in climbing". I've been reading too much of the Pro Cycling thread. Anyhow, in climbing, epo matters more than eps.

No epo, no eps, just an ep :) It works great by the way, both up and down, and has a rock solid but smooth feel to it. I had a C50 before and I might prefer the way that bike felt on the climbs. Springy is a word that comes to mind. Feel, though, it is a hard thing to objectify.
