Haute Route Dolomites 2018

20th to 24th September 2018
(Event Dates 21st-23rd September)

The 2018 Haute Route Dolomites takes place from Friday 21st until Sunday 23rd September, 2018.
You will be immersed in the heart of this legendary mountain range and will trace a sensational route through the jagged rock faces and demanding climbs of the region.
The event will take place in a new 3-day format and the race will feature two classic road stages and an uphill time trial and will be based in one sole location in Predazzo.

The 2018 Haute Route Dolomites will be a 3-day event, along the lines of the highly successful Haute Route Mont Ventoux. If you are looking for a 7-day event, you can still ride the Haute Route Pyrenees or Haute Route Alps in 2018.

With simple logistics and one single race village location you will be able to make the most of the riding and discover one of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world and appreciate the local cycling culture. Along the course you will discover breathtaking landscapes dominated by jagged ridges and towering rock formations, stunning high-altitude glacial lakes and several mountain passes made famous by the legends of Italian cycling.
With two mountainous stages and one uphill time trial riders at the front of the peloton will be able to race flat out for three days, and those further back in the peloton will be able to test themselves and their ability on this new 3-day Haute Route format.

Check out a great article from the Guardian that takes a closer look into the Haute Route highs and heartbreak – what motivates cyclists on tough rides? Read more here.
