A passionate mountain biker raised in the Dolomites, he devised Sellaronda MTB tour in 2008, a mountain bike tour around the Sella group. In 2010, he organized the first HERO Südtirol Dolomites with an entirely new concept for mountain bike races, he developed it further to the level of UCI Marathon World Championship 2015 and confirmed the top position of the race in the international MTB world.
HERO Südtirol Dolomites – From mountain bike marathon to e-bike trail
The mountain bike is the ideal way to fully explore the Dolomites in South Tyrol, while keeping in direct contact with nature. In 2010, it was this conviction that gave rise to HERO Südtirol Dolomites, the toughest mountain bike marathon on earth. The marathon then provided the basis for HERO Trails: a range of 70 guided MTB tours divided into ability classes (easy, medium and for experts) that enable bikers to ride sections of the HERO according to “discipline”: on single-track trails, pleasure trails or with the support of an e-bike and the service of the mountain lifts. The HERO trails represent a new – and progressive – form of tourism in the Dolomites.
