Squadra Coppi sponsors two races each year in the D.C. area...
Giro di coppi road race
The legendary Giro di Coppi returns to the MABRA race calendar with tribute to Squadra Coppi's beloved James P. Bellora, who passed in 2015. Our challenging road race is a signature MABRA event known for its rolling hills and the clean road conditions of Montgomery County near Sugarloaf Mountain. Held late in the season, GDC attracts full fields and competition is high. Be ready for a challenge!
Typically the opening race in the Super 8 Series, Tacchino features rolling grass fields, gravel, two dirt track sections, numerous off-cambers, and a spectator-centric layout that encourages tifosi to take in the race while enjoying a beverage, a Belgian sausage, and a funk band. Hosted at Rosaryville State Park, the race features 12 miles of rolling single track trail and spectator pavilions.
