Full helmet, technical protective equipment, bikes with shock absorbers and disc brakes: dear bikers, welcome to Val di Fassa! Top-ranking location of several editions of the Superenduro circuit and of the Enduro World Series, Val di Fassa is a top destination for those who want to practice the MTB gravity disciplines, which drag the Dolomites into a thrilling whirlwind of downhill parabolic curves and skids to face at full speed.
Gravity trails in Val di Fassa start from the top of the mountains, a step away from its great peaks. The Fassa Bike Park, which developes between "Col Rodella" and "Belvedere", can be easily reached by taking the lifts from Campitello, Canazei or Alba. The descent starts at 2,000 m, along paths and single tracks that alternate stretches with natural obstacles (roots, stones and counterslopes) to more artificial stretches, with bends and wooden runways. The landscape is really uncontaminated: wide meadows at altitude framed by the marvellous dolomitic panoramas leave space to woods made of larches, pines and musk: this is what gravity passionate bikers should expect in Val di Fassa. For the majority of the time, the bikers stand on the pedals, absorbing the asperities of the ground with their arms, holding tight the handlebar and keeping the fingers ready on the brakes. At first, you can rely on the instructors and guides of the Fassabike MTB School to learn straight the game rules, but do not worry, this sport is accessible to all levels thanks to its tracks of various difficulty.
