Stage 1 (26. June 2023) Niederdorf - Auronzo di Cadore
Challenge 59 km / 1.850 hm
Classic 61 km / 1.300 hm
We follow the Dolomiti Superbike route from Niederdorf to Plätzwiese. Our regular guests already know this part of the route well from the last few years. Nevertheless, it is always nice to immerse yourself in this wonderful mountain world.
During the subsequent stop at the Dürrenstein hut, the energy reserves are replenished with South Tyrolean specialties.
After the following descent to the south, a second ascent brings the Challenger very close to the Three Peaks. Shortly after reaching the Auronzo hut, you can enjoy a magnificent view of the famous rock towers, before an ingenious trail through the Val Marzon makes bikers’ hearts beat faster.
The Classic route branches back down towards the valley at Lake Misurina and is joined by the Challenge again in Giralba. On the bike path, everyone reaches the day’s destination in Auronzo di Cadore.
