An Epic Event: The Napa Echelon Gran Fondo

Castello di Amorosa and the Napa Echelon Gran Fondo

Castello di Amorosa invites you to join Team Castello di Amorosa for the Napa Echelon Gran Fondo on May 21. It's a European-style, mass start event -- benefiting local charity-- beginning in downtown Napa and then traversing up and down the legendary Napa Valley.

Join the team by visiting:

The ride benefits local charities including St. Helena Hospital Martin-O'Neil Cancer Center, the Queen of the Valley Cancer Center and The Napa Valley Vine Trail Coalition.

I can see it now, 30 riders dressed in yellow and blue on the start line in downtown Napa, ready to conquer either the 30, 60 or 100 mile course. You'll look sharp in a custom, Team Castello di Amorosa kit (custom pro jersey and bib shorts) designed by Dario Sattui. The yellow and blue signify his University of California colors (Go Bears!); the sleeves are adorned with the colors of the Italian flag- the right sleeve and chest is a perfect spot for the Sattui Family crest. We've deeply discounted the kit for those riding on Team Castello di Amorosa - $115 for both the jersey and bib shorts, but act fast as quantities and sizes are limited.

On the starting line, you'll feel like you're in the Tour de France as a helicopter hovers overhead taking photos of us all. And then comes the best part-- the Silverado Trail is closed to vehicular traffic for several miles and becomes the Napa Echelon Gran Fondo bike path!!

You are invited to have your photo taken, dressed in yellow and blue, on the steps of the Castello di Amorosa Drawbridge on Friday at 3:00 p.m. Don't miss this opportunity!
