DOLOMITICA, LOOK FORWORD, LOOK BEYOND Press Release 03/19
A mtb race with a strong potential, both from a competitive point of view and from an environmental point of view, it strongly believes in sport as a universal language to communicate other values, such as respect for the environment, volunteering, social commitment, safeguarding the common good.
The many volunteers of the Dolomitica Brenta Bike, one of the most beautiful races in Northern Italy, above all under the landscape profile, have been engaged for weeks in an extraordinary operation that has taken the name of "Dolomitica Trail Care" for the restoration of the paths devastated by the numerous felled trees due to the exceptional bad weather that brought the Trentino territory to its knees last October. The trail care project includes a series of promotional and communication actions to make everyone, not just bikers, aware of the value of respecting and safeguarding our trails.
The race will take place Next 30 June, with departure from Pinzolo. All the paths will have been restored. with great sacrifice, but with much love. That's why everything will be even more beautiful. Two routes, three experiences: Marathon, 62 km, 2400mt of altitude is the path that leads to the Dolomite peaks; Race, 31 km and 1200mt of altitude, the fast route with passage to Madonna di Campiglio; Ride, the same race route but dedicated to those who want to enjoy the view of the natural beauty.
Last October, Trentino was hit by an extraordinary wave of bad weather that caused enormous damage to the natural heritage and above all to the forest. In fact, the violence of the wind has brought down extensive areas of woods throughout the province with disastrous consequences for the whole environment. The paths, affected by the trees that fell under the storm, were literally distorted in their identity.
From a calamitous situation, an extraordinary project was born: the professional volunteers who ordinarily are involved in a trail-care activity in preparation for the race, this year were called to an exceptional commitment. For weeks now, as soon as the weather has allowed it, they are working hard to restore the paths affected by the race routes, with the cutting of fallen trees and the consequent cleaning of the tracks.
Thus was born, a real project, "Dolomitica Trail Care", a series of actions, especially promotional and of communication, to sensitize everyone, not just bikers, on the value of respecting and safeguarding our paths. The race , becomes "only" the motivation to look forward, to look beyond, to give an even deeper meaning to the commitment of a community fabric full of volunteering that wants to take care responsibly of the common good. In this case, the environment. The safeguard of the territory is communicated with the same passion that these people have for the mountain bike, because there would be no mountain bike without paths, because our paths are everyone’s paths and their safeguard, their care, are a social duty for us.
The race will be held next June 30th. All the paths involved will have been restored. With sacrifice, but with much love. That's why everything will be even more beautiful.
The 6th edition of the Dolomitica Brenta Bike is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful mtb competitions from the point of view of the landscape in all Northern Italy and of the UNESCO World Heritage Dolomites. It starts from Pinzolo and winds around spectacular tracks in the woods of the Brenta di Madonna di Campiglio. There are two paths. The Marathon of 62 km and 2400mt of altitude is the path that leads to the peaks of the Dolomites, with an unprecedented passage, as far as the ambit of Madonna di Campiglio is concerned, to Lake Montagnoli, while the most suggestive is the one in the Monte Spinale area. For those who do not choose the Marathon, there is the Race, 31 km and 1200mt of height difference, the fast route with passage to Madonna di Campiglio and the Ride, the same Race route but dedicated to those who want to enjoy the view of the natural beauty. And of course the DoloMini dedicated to the little bikers on saturday.
