“VALLE DEL DIAOL”: a legend, pure adrenaline, a challenge with yourself.
The beginning of the path is just above Nago, a few hundred metres after Malga Casina. 4,5 breathtaking kms to practice with the proper protective gear, full face helmet and gloves, on a mixed terrain, sometimes compact and fast, sometimes full of stones, smooth faces and rocks, which will test your balance. The descent ends in the industrial estate of Nago: from there you cross the fields to reach the centre of the town and then down to Torbole sul Garda.
Here the comment of Pier Paolo “Pippo ” Marani, tracker of Downhill World Championship Val di Sole, on this track:"The Val del Diaol track is really one of a kind: here, you have to knowhow to ride your bike. You have to be fluent, if you want to make yourway on the rocks. The downhill is physical, hard, wild: if you want totame it, you have to attack it from the beginning to the end."
