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 first stage of the Giro delle Dolomiti 2024 leads to the Renon high plateau. From Collalbo you cycle to Barbiano and down to Ponte Gardena in the Valle Isarco, valley where the first crono to Castelrotto begins. Through Siusi and Fiè, the route leads back to the South Tyrolean capital. This stage is followed by a true classic of the Dolomites, the Giro dei 4 Passi, better known as the Sellaronda, which this year is run clockwise. After crossing Val Gardena, we first climb the Passo Gardena, followed by the other three passes: the Campolongo, the Pordoi and the Sella. On the third day we offer you a very special highlight: the ascent to the famous 3 Cime di Lavaredo, in the heart of the Dolomites, an unforgettable adventure! You cycle from Dobbiaco to Cortina d’Ampezzo, then via Misurina to the Rifugio Auronzo mountain hut. In the fourth stage we cross the Funes Valley before climbing the Passo Erbe; via Luson and Bressanone we return to Bolzano. In the fifth and final stage we explore the beautiful area between Collepietra and Lake Carezza.
Well-trained legs, a good mood and, above all, a medical certificate for competitive cycling are the requirements. 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, personal bag transfer and accurate information.
Participants will be informed in good time about safety measures in connection with the Coronavirus pandemic and in line with developments in the situation.
