All the information about the race which will take place on June 26 is available on-line at details, tracks, communications, videos and photos, all in one large website for easy browsing, always updated in three languages – Italian, German and English. The on-line registration function is already active and will close when 500 registrations will be reached.

Selva Gardena (Italy) 10.03.10 While waiting for the first edition of the SELLARONDA HERO MTB MARATHON, a mountain bike race on two tracks (50 and 82 kilometers) scheduled for June 26 in the most enchanting of Alpine panoramas, the Dolomites, bikers from all over Europe can get in the competitive mood by clicking on
After selecting your language between Italian, German and English, you can visit the portal’s many sub-sections. This active site offers a wealth of not only racing information, but is a showcase for fascinating multimedia content.

On the home page, you can watch two videos to discover the secrets of the race track, one in 3D to analyze the route’s technical aspects, and a film to enjoy (only virtually for the time being) one of the Alps’ most seductive panoramas, the Dolomites, proclaimed UNESCO World Natural Heritage.

The race will wind through the Dolomites of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba, Val di Fassa and Alpe di Siusi. A competition with two levels of difficulty: A marathon route of 82 kilometres with a 4200 metre difference in altitude (named Iron), and one of 50 kilometres with a 2600 metre difference in altitude (named Medium).
A demanding challenge where bikers will race through four Dolomite passes, Gardena, Campolongo, Pordoi and Sella, as well as the little known but yet extremely demanding Duron Pass, around the magnificent Sella and Sassolungo massifs.

But remember, registration for the first edition of the SELLARONDA HERO MTB-MARATHON is limited to 500 bikers!!! How to register? Go to, on link, where you can register directly by filling out a simple form.

Both races will depart from Selva Gardena at 8:00 am on Saturday, June 26 for the first 500 registered bikers.

Prize money for the first edition of the SELLARONDA HERO MTB-MARATHON is impressive: absolute winners in the MEN’s and LADIES’ categories will receive a check for 2500.00 Euros, whereas the winners of the amateur category will win a Scott mountain bike (GENIUS 20 for men and CONTESSA SPARK RC for women), whose retail value is approximately 4000 euros each.
