2.700 metres of adrenaline and Mountain biking

The project takes the form of a pair of numbers: 20 kilometres of pistes in single trails totaling 2.700 vertical metres ahead at breakneck speeds. In HERO TOUR GRAVITY are involved the four valleys that hover on the Sella Group and who identified in some lifts the "spot" (so freeriders call gravity spots) the new proposal. In Val Gardena, For example, It starts with the "Ciampinoi" Freeride, a descent from Ciampinoi (2.140 m) and ends in Selva Val Gardena (1.600 m) a total of 2.700 metres of development with 550 vertical metres. Clockwise arrive in Alta Badia with Singletrail "Frara" from Gardena pass (2.121 m) in Colfosco (1.645 m) down a path of 3 mileage and 470 vertical metres. In the Venetian Sellaronda HERO GRAVITY TOUR two proposals.

The lifts
The spots of the proposed HERO GRAVITY TOUR are integrated together thanks to the dense network of lifts around the Sella Group. This enables freerider to transfers from a descent to the other using cable cars and chair lifts that are open in summer. It should be mentioned that the owners and operators of ski lifts are not responsible for the descent paths, but only taxi from Valley upstream of the people and their bikes.

Piz Enduro TOUR
In recent years the world gravity has undergone many developments, so much so that the "enduro" grew strongly. Transfers that combine the use of lifts to long rides on his mountain bike to reach the "spot" from which plunge downhill. Here's the exciting TOUR HERO GRAVITY proposal integrated path to do Enduro style from Badia and climbs alternated with descended through the plateau of Piz la Ila, Piz Sorega, Mushrooms until Colfosco. A total of 48,7 Kilometers (38,4 km without lifts) with 3.480 vertical meters laid 800 to cycle uphill, to go in 5/6 hours.

Safety first
Those who practice freeride mountain biking is well aware that this is a discipline with a strong element of risk: the falls are on the agenda and quite often are due to wrong manoeuvres of the same biker. Therefore if you decide to go down in one of the paths of HERO GRAVITY TOUR does so under their own responsibility. It is for this reason that the four Alpine districts invite freeriders and enduro enthusiasts to adopt protections (casco, knee pads, para elbows and everything useful for the protection of the person), In addition to behave in a bike able to always have total control of your vehicle.
