The Giro delle Dolomiti is a road cycling event open to everyone. In 5 stages (no more day’s rest) participants ride through the Dolomites on their road bicycles. One of the main features of the Giro delle Dolomiti is the combination of sporty competition on traffic-free sections of the route and cycling at a comfortable pace, surrounded by excellent local products and in a familiar, international atmosphere. Each stage includes an uphill time trial several kilometres long, which gives the Giro delle Dolomiti a competitive edge. Most of the single stages will be covered in groups at controlled speeds. In 2023 will take place the 46th edition.
The 46th edition will run from Monday, July 24th to Friday, July 28th, 2023 (5 stages)
Starting always from the Bolzano Fair, the Giro of the Dolomites 2023 begins with the stage in Val di Fiemme valley. Passing through Ora and the San Lugano Pass, we reach Cavalese (Val di Fiemme) from where we will climb to the Passo Lavazé and then on to the ski resort of Obereggen. Via Ponte Nova and Cardano we will return to Bolzano. This stage will be followed by a very classic one, the „Giro dei 4 Passi“, the legendary Sellaronda: crossing the Val Gardena valley we will reach first the Passo Sella, then the Pordoi, the Campolongo and finally the Passo Gardena. On the third day another unmissable climb is scheduled, that of the Passo Stelvio with its 48 U-turns, a tough but unforgettable adventure for all climbers. It climbs from Prato allo Stelvio on the South Tyrolean side and the return via Swiss territory (Passo Umbrail and Münstair). In stage number 4 you will be able to admire the Marmolada glacier from the dam of Lake Fedaia; from Bolzano we will first go through the entire Val d’Ega valley up to the Passo Costalunga from where we will descend to Canazei before starting the section up to the Passo Fedaia. In the fifth and final stage you will explore the Salto Plateau via the locations of San Genesio and Meltina before returning to the Bolzano base.
Around 80% of the cyclists take part in all 5 stages, competing for the overall classification. However, it is also possible to register for individual stages.
The “logistic base” of the Giro delle Dolomiti is the area of the Fiera of Bolzano, in Via della Fiera, 1. Nearly all 5 stages will start from there. On stage 3 there will be offered a bus transfer up to Venosta Valley where the Stelvio climb will officially start. More informations soon; transfer bookings in the race office.
Each day’s stages start at a different time: the exact times can be found online on the individual stage pages with an indication of the length and altitude difference; see in https://www.girodolomiti.com/giro-2023#tour
Timed sections are present in every stage. They vary from 8 to 24 km and are traffic free. The sum of the timed sections determine the final classification of a participant.
Well-trained legs, a good mood and, above all, a medical certificate for competitive cycling are the requirements. Participants will be informed in good time about safety measures in connection with the Coronavirus pandemic and in line with developments in the situation. The sixty or so highly motivated volunteers of the Giro team will take care of everything else – security, refreshments along the route or the race office – guaranteeing quality, passionate commitment and accurate information.
