Sellaronda Hero Dolomites Bike Festival

HERO Südtirol Dolomites: MTB heroes wanted

Hero Bike Festival:
14 June 2018 – 17 June 2018

With an 87-kilometre route covering 4,400 vertical metres, this mountain bike race circumnavigating the Sella massif in the Dolomites is one of the toughest there is. A second variant covering 60 kilometres and 3,100 vertical metres is admittedly somewhat shorter, but no less challenging. The great number of visitors and fans will once again get to share all the thrills when professionals and amateurs alike take part in South Tyrol’s famous MTB race. The event organisers vow that, after HERO, their lives as riders will never be the same again, and it is quite possible that they are not exaggerating. HERO Kids, which takes place the day before the big brother event, also promises much in the way of suspense and enjoyment. Children aged between four and 12 years are the stars in this non-competitive race.
