Pinarello’s ‘Depth of Calm’ Part 2: Wertz Bikes the Dolomites

After learning about gravel rider Brennan Wertz’s life story in Part 1, we now see him exploring the legacy of his chosen sport.

It can seem like staring at the Dolomites can never get old. But can gorgeous Alps scenery also bring you to a state of peace, even during intense endurance cycling?

For Pinarello gravel rider Brennan Wertz, that’s a big yes.

The first video of this series followed Wertz on a journey through his childhood home in Marin County, Calif. This time, it comes back to the present, where he competes in the Gran Fondo National Series in Treviso, Italy.

“I hope I can show people how amazing the sport of gravel riding is, and the places you can go, and all the different journeys you can have on two wheels,” Wertz says in the video.

If those journeys go to the Dolomites, count us in!
