When mountain biking is a common interest between a group of friends it becomes great fun and often super competitive. And when mountain biking becoes a ‘’family activity’’ it can become a really extraordinary experience. Yes, when Mum, Dad, and the kids too love biking, each in their own style and manner, then the family fun really begins. What could be better?

With this in mind, and looking forward to the 2017 HERO event, we are embarking on the challenge to find the HERO FAMILY, a family composed of two parents and at least one child, all of whom have a love of biking, and are intending to take part in the HERO week. The family we choose will become the protagonists of our special project. The family we are looking for must all be signed up to take part in the HERO Bike Festival 2017. An example of what we mean? Well Dad might be registered to compete in the HERO SÜDTIROL DOLOMITES race, irrespective of whether it is the 86 or 60 kilometre race. The son or daughter will be set to take part in the HERO KIDS event, and Mum will have her name down to take part in BE-HERO, the E-bike tour which will go from Selva Val Gardena to Alpe di Siusi along an enogastronomic route, both relaxing and great fun.

Of course the roles may be reversed – apart of course from the fact that it needs to be the son or daughter taking part in the HERO KIDS – in that it might well be Mum taking part in the HERO SÜDTIROL DOLOMITES whilst it will be Dad who takes advanatage of the e-bike option and gifts himself a super day out in the Dolomites. As you read the important thing is that the family composed of three or more persons are involved in all three disciplines making up the Bike Festival 2017.

What do you have to do to be elected HERO FAMILY 2017? All that is necessary is to send an e-mail to info@herodolomites.com by 31 January, giving a description of your family team and a brief description what mountain biking and the HERO mean for you. A special commission will be appointed to judge on all the submissions and to select the HERO FAMILY 2017. The selected family will need to agree to a short interview which we will publish in the HERO Times and on arrival at Selva Val Gardena in June there will be waiting a prize as awarded by our Organisation. No need to wait – send in your submission now!
