Only The Brave
2022 Edition canceled

Riccò del Golfo - Pigna

588 km - 19.760 m D+

11 - 19 June 2021   


Four years after the last edition (2017), Alta Via Stage Race returns to the scene, promoted and organized by the new ASD Outdoor Experience Finale Ligure. The seventh edition had already been scheduled for 2020, but the health emergency forced the staff to cancel the event, postponing it to the following year.

AVSR 2022 presents itself with two great innovations: the inclusion in the FCI (Italian Cycling Federation) calendar, which determined the presence in the competition of two federal judges, and a professional timekeeping service, entrusted to the FICr (Italian Federation of Timekeepers).

The route, largely renovated, stops for the first time in Genoa (Capital of Sport 2024) and in some characteristic and suggestive locations in the hinterland (Cuccaro, Giaiette, Alto).

Despite the forced renunciation, for reasons related to the health situation, of about twenty athletes, participation is high. About half of the members come from abroad, from 11 different European countries.

Unlike previous editions, the Hero 2022 formula includes not two absolute rankings (Solo and Couples), but three: Couples, Only Men and, for the first time, Only Women. Among the registered competitors, some prominent names stand out: the Italian Gaia Ravaioli, testimonial of the event, the Portuguese Ilda Pereira, the Ukrainian Olena Novikova.

At the finish line Gaia Ravaioli - wearing the jersey of the "Pink Race", the social project of Alta Via Stage Race on gender equality in sport - said: "It was a tough, tiring, demanding race from a physical, technical and mental, full of twists but very very very exciting ... and that's why it will remain in my heart!"
