Stage 1

Brixen – St. Vigil

This is a really nice stage to get warm and to start the Dolomite Experience. The Gardena pass, one of the most known passes in the Dolomites, is waiting for you. There you can see - right next to the walls of the Sella – the mountains from their Nicest. Especially beautiful, when catching the view of the Monte Cavallo. The climb from the Gardena Valley to the Gardena can be called as fair, as the rise only gets more challenging from Wolkenstein further on. But from there, the most difficult part is already done. The small and curvy streets above the Valley Isarco leading to the Gardena are stealing all your cardio. Especially the climb from Gufidaun to Lajen is sportive. In comparison, the last kilometres to St. Vigil are kind of easy-going.
