The Enduro treat of the season:The Trail Hunt Knödeljagd in Val Gardena
Even more trail specials, even more fun games - fresh goodies await all enduro fans at the Trail Hunt Knödeljagd in Val Gardena

It's hard to imagine the MTB calendar without the cult event, and in 2024 the racers will be serving up an even more festive menu: At the Trail Hunt in Val Gardena on 31th of August, enduro fans will battle it out on a completely new course with four tricky challenges. For the 2-person and 3-person teams (incl. separate
E-MTB classification), one fantastic trail follows the next on the Sellaronda and in the enduro mecca of Canazei.

We definitely can't get enough of what Mother Nature serves us in the middle of the Dolomites. But we can eat our tasty dumplings that are on the menu at the end of the day at the dumpling festival - with live music, lots of cool prizes and, of course, the Golden Giant Dumpling, which is won by the team with the best average time. BUT first you have to find all the checkpoints with smart tactics, good orientation and maximum fun and pass the four dumpling challenges.

With a view of the Sellagroup, the Sassolungo massif and the majestic Marmolada, the bike buddies go uphill in teams of 2 or 3 by cable car - and then downhill on the finest trails, from flowing to challenging, from freshly built routes to technical natural trails, there is something for everyone's taste. For the sixth edition, the hunters start on Ciampinoi on a completely new route that has even more trail delicacies in store.

If you have a taste for it, you can register for the trail hunt from 15.04.2024 onwards. The price of 48 € (per person) includes a participant shirt, a beer and of course the dumplings. This year the lift ticket is NOT included in the start package!
Choice between day ticket or 3-day ticket. The lift ticket Dolomiti SuperSummer can be purchased directly at the valley station of the Ciampinoi cable car by showing the booking confirmation (PDF document).
