The Olympic discipline of Mountain Biking merges different souls. Challenging climbs, thrilling descents and technical sections never fail in producing that unique mix of emotions called Cross Country Mountain Biking. The history of MTB in Val di Sole is still relatively short, as the first edition took place in 2008, but it was nothing less than the Mountain Bike World Championships. Anyway, the Cross Country superstars already gave us many unforgettable battles on these trails, while riding for the World Cup stages and the World Championships over the years, the latest one being in 2021.
The Cross Country races characterize the last day of the 2022 UCI Mountain Bike World Cup Finals in Val di Sole, on Sunday, September 4th. Nino Schurter has been the most successful rider here, having won seven of the last nine editions and the last edition of the World Champs in 2021. However, the latest winner in a World Cup round was Mathieu Van der Poel, who smashed the competition during the 2019 edition.
The contenders battle on a 4 km circuit with 190 meters of elevation gain around the Val di Sole Bike Park in Daolasa di Commezzadura. From the stones and roots to the adrenaline sections, the loop has everything in place to provide a top-class show. The addition of the "Bear Forest" in 2018, along with more technical hurdles, are set to test the riders in every possible way. Last but not least, the new setup of the finish area guarantees the fans a perfect view over the finish line.
