Though hundreds are sometimes spectacular and extremely difficult competitions annually worldwide over the stage, the relay will remain around the city in a class by himself Dolomite.

The staging, the scenery, the genius of the track layout and the mix of sports are second to none. Then even if the weather cooperates – and even that is almost always perfect – it is a tough race for social and sporting event with goose bumps.
