Haute Route Dolomites 2017

Haute Route Dolomites 2017
The Haute Route Dolomites is often seen as the toughest of the three main European 7 day events. It has the highest altitudes, steepest ramps and often the harshest conditions. The fourth edition of the Haute Route Dolomites starts for the first time from Innsbruck, the capital of the Tyrol, and then makes its way to Venice by way of a spectacular and challenging course that covers 812 kilometres of road, and with 20,000 metres of vertical ascent. The key climbs include the majestic Timmelsjoch and the Monte Giovo, an Individual Time Trial up the Passo delle Erbe, the Passo San Pellegrino and two ascents of the mighty Passo Fedaia. Another bonus is that the new route offers three two-night stays for riders, reducing the logistical challenge of the week dramatically. Benjamin Chandelier, the Haute Route Dolomites Event Director, says that this edition looks set to be an absolute classic that will challenge riders of all abilities. “We are super-excited to be starting from Innsbruck and for the first time in the history of the Haute Route Dolomites to have devised a course that travels directly to Venice without transfers,” he said. “The double-night stays are going to make everything very easy off the bike, meaning riders can enjoy their time on the bike even more. It’s a new beginning for this great event and one not to miss,” Chandelier added.
