Nobody, including the top riders from all over the world and the millions of mountain-bike enthusiasts who have seen the past stages of the World Cup organized in Val di Sole, will ever forget the ‘temper’ of its race track and the impressive efficiency of the organising committee Grandi Eventi Val di Sole.

The UCI experts have just done their ‘track walk’, the preliminary inspection of the course where the final stage of the World Cup UCI 2015 presented by Shimano will take place.

The downhill course is still the epic Black Snake, Pippo Marani masterpiece, beloved and hated at the same time by top riders from all over the world, an “old school” track that makes personal interpretation and riding imagination really critical. During 2014 the course has been modified with the addition of boardwalks and new sections, all good and already tested – even in the rain – during the stage of the European IXS Downhill Cup.

The cross country will be a mix of old school and new school sections, about 200 m of climbing per lap, with natural single track passages in the woods and built sections full of whoops and berms, with the Rock Garden still there and the addition of places to overtake in a ‘dual-slalom’ style. With all this, the challenge will be very tasty and will satisfy the thirst of spectacle of the big public, as always filling up Commezzadura on the 22nd and 23rd of August 2015.

With other hot news: Val di Sole will host the one-only stage of the 4X UCI World Championship. Right! 4X is no longer part of the Pro Tour, but in one only stage the whole challenge will take place here at Commezzadura, on a track appreciated at an international level.

The same course tracks that are already ‘buzzing’, full of expectation for what they will be able to offer: the Commezzadura stage, being the final one of the World Cup, could be the time of radical ranking changes.

The nature of the Val di Sole trails that have been hosting the World Cup during these last years has really raised the community interest. Well recognised at the international level, they are respected and appreciated for the high level of technicality. Nothing to be scared of even for those riders who just want to have fun without the stress of time-keeping, and challenge themselves in the passages of the World Cup bike park Val di Sole BikeLand or on the endless routes around the valley. There is a huge network of trails in the mountains around and it gives the chance of truly experiencing massifs among the most appreciated in the world: Brenta Dolomites or Ortles-Cevedale and Adamello.
