Haute Route Dolomites compact !

Arrived into BOLZANO, the perfect blend of German sense of tidiness and organization with the undisputable magic that only Italy can offer. Bolzano, while being in Italy present itself and refers it self as a German town. Class, style and awesome genetics are just one of the few reasons why any Rancher should consider coming here and check this place out.  

Stage One- Bolzano to Cortina D'Ampezzo - 175km +3,700 metres 
The dolomites a truly outstanding ridding territory with breath taking views.

After finishing HR Compact Stage one, with my pal Sebi, who after a day of fiercely competition beats me in the grueling stage into Cortina. Compiting has never been sooo fun!    

Stage 2 HR Compact - Cortina D'Ampezzo to Venice 175km +1700metres.

Early start to tackle a beautiful stage. First the Passo Giau and then a long decent and very fast flat section to finish the timing section at the top of Passo San Boldo, committed to set the record straight on the ranking Seb and rider Eazy-E had yet another day of fiercely competition ...

finished in Venice, always tight on time we packed bikes and rushed to the Airport to take the Sunday afternoon flight back- it was a fantastic weekend where the only thing pending was the Bellinis at Piazza San Marco, next time!!
