The Dolomiti-Classic-Ascotrade-Arabba confirms security measures and technical assistance for the race

Arabba (Belluno), 30/07/2013 – After the positive experience of 2012, the Dolomiti Classic – Ascotrade – Arabba has decided to confirm all of the security measures and the free service of technical assistance during the race.

Numerous civil protection volunteers and law enforcement agencies will be present in strategic points along the route, thus ensuring safety throughout the event. Two fixed refreshment points will be set up at the top of every pass crossed by the race, plus three set points for technical assistance will be situated respectively on  Passo Duran, Passo Staulanza and Passo Giau: all will be equipped with everything necessary (wheels, inner tubes, chains, tyres and assorted parts) to help competitors in case of flats or mechanical problems.

Even this year there will be four mobile units that will follow the riders, two for each route. One car will be at the head of the race, while a motorcycle will continuously be on the move within the peloton to cover the central and final parts of the race. To request intervention, all you have to do is stop at the side of the road and raise your hand or contact the phone number of the organisation which will be supplied to all the participants with their race package.

Another important element confirmed will be the presence of a mechanic on board the sweeper car who will recuperate those riders in trouble and their bikes.

So hurry to sign up on the official website by September 4. You can also register the day before the race and the morning of the start with a surcharge of €10.00.

“The investment made in the past editions to improve security measures and technical assistance of the race, has given great results and so we have decided to repeat the same format even this year. Participants who choose the Dolomiti Classic – Ascotrade – Arabba, look forward to spent two days of sport immersed in the mountains, but the comfort of the athletes during the race is an important key issue.Just one month is left till the race begins and we are working hard to give the best experience to all riders and their friends and families to live a wonderful weekend in the breathtaking territories of the Valley of Fodom says Marco Sartori, President of the Dolomiti Stars Bike World Association.
