Only the Brave

9 - 16 June 2024

RACE CANCELLED

Alta Via Stage Race

We had to make a very difficult decision.
Due to the low number of competitors, the 2024 edition is cancelled. Better said, Alta Via Stage Race is retiring.
We thank so much those who signed up and were preparing to live this wonderful experience, just as we thank all those who have lived it in the past. You are in our heart. You are - and forever will be - part of a wonderful adventure.
Our journey began in 2012. Together with you we discovered and learned to love our Liguria, which is wonderful from the sea to the mountains. We met people, men and women of great human and professional value. We had the support of far-sighted local administrations who believed in us, but also disappointments due to the lack of support from the regional administration. COVID and swine fever brought us to our knees, but twice we rolled up our sleeves and set off again with determination.
This time it's not possible, the costs are too high and we are a small association of volunteers who promote Liguria through sport and mountain biking.
We are very sorry that we did not live up to your expectations. We really gave it our all.
With love, passion and a lot of sadness in the heart
The Alta Via Stage Race staff


BETWEEN SEA AND MOUNTAIN

An eclectic and evocative route, which every day offers something unexpected: paths immersed in woods, wind-swept plateaus, Mediterranean maquis, sunny stony areas, mountain ridges that seem to plunge into the sea and embrace the Alps and the coast at a glance.

360 DEGREES ADVENTURE

Alta Via Stage Race is run by identifying the route from GPS, a new experience and a challenge for many bikers. Technical skills and physical endurance are not enough, you also need to be able to overcome the tension of the race in order to read the track and orient yourself on the territory.

FUN AND TECHNIQUE

Finale Ligure is known worldwide as a mountain bike paradise, but throughout all of Liguria - and in every stage of Alta Via Stage Race - it will always be fun for bikers! Long and fluid singletracks, winding trails, dirt roads, technical descents: a variety of grounds that surprises and excites!

GENUINE HOSPITALITY

The strong point of Alta Via Stage Race is the deep bond with the territory and its people. Every evening, at the stage village, local associations will prepare a wonderful welcome dedicated to taste and folklore, offering typical dishes and products, traditional music and dancing.

FAMILY ATMOSPHERE

The atmosphere you breathe during the week is one that remains in your heart: we run together, eat and sleep in the tent village. The staff also does their part, thanks to the helpful and friendly approach that characterizes the management of the event!

DISCOVERING LIGURIA

Alta Via Stage Race is a journey through the history, the art and the culture of a beautiful region, a land of sailors and mountain people, capable of conquering even the most competitive bikers. Small villages rich in tradition, cultivated terraced hills, castles and fortifications, alleys and marinas.

TOUGH FUNNY AMAZING

The motto "Only the Brave" embodies the spirit of a high-level mtb competition, an adventure that only the brave dare to face, no less than the challenge launched by the other great mtb stage races in the world: tough races, which push bikers to their limit, mentally and physically. After all, we are in Liguria, where the climbs are for real bikers and the descents leave no room for those who haven't practiced mountain biking for a while at least! But Alta Via Stage Race is not just fatigue, it is much, much more.
