HALL OF FAME

SÜDTIROL SELLARONDA HERO 2015

Spectacular were the predictions and spectacular it was! A wonderful UCI World Championships 2015

Enthusiastic fans, happy and favourably impressed athletes, two well deserving World Champions, and last but not least a total of 4.015 potential HEROes, all having taken on the challenge of completing the toughest mountain bike marathon the world has to offer – the Südtirol Sellaronda HERO! Again this year the race confirmed its growing reputation, as well a certain fascination the world over, as a permanent fixture in the international mountain biking calendar.

The 2015 Heroes are Alban Lakata and Gunn-Rita Dahle-Flesjå: in Val Gardena, the Austrian and the Norwegian were crowned World Champions of the UCI Mtb Marathon. On the chalenging course of the Südtirol Sellaronda HERO, it having the honour of hosting this year’s races, Lakata dominated from start to finish and his arrival in Selva was an unaccompanied one, and the same story was true as far as Norwegian Gunn-Rita Dahle was concerned.

SÜDTIROL SELLARONDA HERO 2013

LEONARDO PAEZ, JUST ONE OF 3,000 DOLOMITE HEROES.

A heroic race also in terms of countries represented.

The 2013 race saw Leonardo Paez, the Columbian biker of the TX Active Bianchi team repeat his success of the previous year. It was also a HERO type race in terms of participation - 3,013
competitors from 33 different countries, as well as the race being "sold out" months beforehand. We need to remember that we are only approaching the 4th running of the HERO and yet it seems to be a 'must', in the sense of being the competition which all riders must attempt at least once so as to be a Hero - even if just for one day!

SÜDTIROL SELLARONDA HERO 2012

Half-hour of rain before the start -: that is all it took for the race to take an even more heroic turn. 2012 bikers (the same number as the year of the race!) readied themselves at dawn last Saturday, 23rd June, ready to become the main characters in the running of the third editon of Südtirol Sellaronda HERO, the moutain bike marathon which circles the Sella mountain group in the heart of the Dolomites. Some of the bikers chose the truly heroic challenge of 82 km while others took the shorter one of 52 km; even this shorter race involved a difference of altitude of 2700 metres. A day that all competitors will certainly have marked in red in their diary. A day to remember indeed for the winner of the mens race, the Colombian Leonardo Paez, while the womens winner had double cause for celebration - the German biker Katrin Schwing finishing on top of the podium for the second year running. And what about the others? All heroes, with not a single exception!
