The race takes place between the Dolomites of Val Gardena, Alta Badia, Arabba, Val di Fassa and Alpe di Siusi. A competition with two levels of difficulty: A marathon course with 82 kilometers and a route for all (or almost all) with 50 kilometers.

The bikers for the first victory in a race are at the foot of the Sella and Sassolungo fight, that is intended to be a must in the international mountain bike calendar.

A unique natural spectacle that will certainly compensate the MTB fans who present themselves at the start, along with the typical mountain huts and the delicious local specialities. In detail the two routes see the race of IRON, with 82 km and 4,200 m difference in altitude, as well as the race MEDIO, with 50 km and 2,600 m, difference in altitude before.
