Downhill, "off road" experience on two wheels

Full helmet, technical protective equipment, bikes with two shock absorbers and disc brakes: the "gravity killers" are arrived in Val di Fassa! Nothing to worry about, we are talking about downhill, one of the extreme versions of mountain-biking, a new opportunity to boost your adrenaline in the Dolomites. Some compare downhill to motocross, others to downhill skiing. One thing is for sure: this sport is only for the brave.



Downhill in Val di Fassa: use instructions

In Val di Fassa the downhill tracks start on top the mountains. The Fassa Bike Resort in Belvedere can be easily reached by lift from Canazei. The downhill trails start is at 2,000 m and the steep slope includes side slips, jumps, wooden platforms and bents. The maximum speed that can be reached is 70 km/h. Grass, dirt roads, forest, mud: this is what awaits downhill fans in Val di Fassa. You stand on the pedals for most of the time; arms absorb the vibrations of the ground, hands are on brakes, leg muscles are in tension, all in an adrenalin whirl. In the beginning you can rely on the instructors of the Fassabike MTB School to learn about the rules and techniques. Downhill is a thrilling, demanding sport but anyone can have a go as tracks are suitable to all levels. Of course you have to be a little bit daring, have good reflexes, keep your concentration during the descent and - last but not least - be familiar with mountain biking.
