A legendary route for endurance enthusiasts, the “Dolomiti Superbike”. This tour follows the original route in some parts, passing through Pratopiazza, and can be ridden in either direction.


The plateau right above the Braies Valley offers an unforgettable panoramic view with the croda Rossa, the tre cime, tofane and the cristallo Range for backdrop. A good fitness level and a good amount of leg endurance is required for this 1000 m climb, which is spread over 46 km. the most challenging climbs are left behind once the plateau has been reached.
