HERO XCO VAL GARDENA

S. Cristina Val Gardena, Nordic Skiing Centre of Monte Pana

Make way for the new stars!

The XCO Val Gardena opens the HERO 2015 World Marathon Week: a cross-country race on a 4 km circuit and 160 hm elevation gain. Bikers will have to complete the circuit various times depending on their category. As can be expected from an Olympic discipline, athletes will face hard, steep climbs and technical, demanding downhill rides. All this set against the backdrop of stunning views. The Val Gardena XCO is part of the cross-country South Tyrol Championship. It attracts numerous pro and amateur bikers to the starting line. However, the limelight is directed on the local youth. HERO has devised a race which acts as a stepping stone towards higher goals. Both bikers and audience will have a time to remember thanks to the spectacular location of the Nordic Skiing Centre in Monte Pana, at the foot of the Sassolungo, Val Gardena’s symbol.

HERO BIKE Night

Ortisei, S. Antonio square

A ride down memory lane: the Amarcord bike

The mountain bike as we know it was the last evolutionary step of the bike or the velocipede, as it was known at the start of the last century. Take a stroll back in time with us to celebrate the HERO Bike Festival: around 30 members of the period bike club “bici d’epoca”, dressed in jerseys of the time, will showcase their historic bikes, genuine heirlooms from the 19th and beginning of the 20th century. We’ll travel back to the origins of the bike, the birth of the mountain bike and its use and development in the Dolomites. Videos from that period, live music with The Jam’son, interviews and stories of experts will bring us a somewhat vintage and ancient atmosphere. Unmissable.

Biking in the mountains, surrounded by silence.

In the last ten years, the roads of the four Dolomite passes have been witness to a magnificent, yet ever so quiet, event. The Sellaronda Bike Day: on this day no traffic is allowed on the roads and 20,000 (yes, you’ve read that right!) bikers swarm onto the roads of Passo Sella, Passo Gardena, Passo Pordoi, and Passo Campolongo. This isn’t a race. This isn’t a competition. Therefor no registration is needed. It’s a long bike ride around the Sella Group, in the heart of the Dolomites. From 8.30 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. the roads of the four passes will be free of motorised traffic.

STARTING POINTS

Start from the valley villages around the Sella Group: Canazei, Arabba, Corvara, and Selva Val Gardena. The official starting point in Val Gardena is at the Maciaconi crossroads in Selva on the border to S. Cristina at 8.30 a.m. For safety reasons, please bike anticlockwise. We highly recommend you to use the helmet.

HIGHLIGHT
In occasion of the tenth edition of the Sellaronda Bike Day, members of the period bike club “bici d’epoca” will visit S. Cristina Val Gardena at the starting point with their historic bikes.

CAN BIKING LEAD TO AN ECO-SUSTAINABLE TOURISM...?

Selva Val Gardena, Tublà da Nives

Round table composed of experts in tourism and alternative mobility

The valleys around the Dolomites area are experiencing a phenomenon which has great prospects: for the future of the mountain bike. In these times cycling in the mountains is enjoying a renewed interest thanks to the technological innovation which has transformed the ordinary two wheel bicycle into a new dimension vehicle, safe and offering many enjoyable opportunities. To this we add the knowledge that hand in hand with mtb development there is the possibiloity of a whole new tourism development. This is why we wish to go deeper into the theme of alternative mobility as offered by the ‘two wheel’ form, passing from onroad bikes, to e-bikes, and of course to mountain bikes. In this discussion it is opportune that consideration is not limited to the contributions to be made by the institutional bodies representing the territory but extended to those operators who are actively involved in this significant growth of economic activity in the tourism sector, it at the same time proposing a fresh and appealing image of our area as a tourism destination.

Selva Val Gardena

Your typical South Tyrolean party...

Traditional music and clothing have always been part of the life of the people living at the bottom of the Dolomites: we are happy to invite all the guests of our valleys to take part in the Dirndl & Lederhosen Party, the South Tyrolean evening with live music from the Vollbluet.

MEET ADIDAS EYEWEAR

AT THE SUMMIT FOR...

We’ve all been there: wearing our glasses and having to constantly wipe away the sweat running down our forehead on to them. One, ten, hundred, countless droplets of sweat run down our forehead from below our helmet when we bike uphill on a hot day. We can’t see the route in front of us. Sometimes not seeing a seemingly harmless root, rock or irregularity in the ground is more than enough to make us crash. So long, dreams of hope and glory.

ENERGY STRATEGY

To become a hero of Sellaronda Hero you need your head, legs, heart and the right nutrition.

It is not easy to become a hero. You work towards it, step by little step. Becoming a Sellaronda Hero is a challenge that pushes your endurance to its utmost limits and requires technique, outstanding equipment, the ability to adapt. Like an off-road vehicle, you must be able to deal with mud or dust, or a dirt road, single track, or going up and down over roots and rocks, in the wilderness. Becoming a hero means applying technique, endurance and a trained mind - in other words, physical and mental preparation that must be achieved, among other things, through nutrition and dietary supplements, before, during and after competitions.
