2024 AVIREX HERO CHALLENGE

After seeing Top Gun 2 – Maverick at the cinema, we were struck by a singular thought: we often test our limits at the HERO, too, on climbs and descents, similarly to what happens during the movie’s most exciting scene. This is what inspired us to create an extra special challenge: the AVIREX HERO Challenge.

HOW IT WORKS

Once you reach the Duron Pass on the 86 km and 71 km routes, it will be like Maverick flying into the canyon for you. Once you reach the Tirler intersection, your ascent to Zallinger (3,500 meters of route and 300 meters of elevation gain) will be timed: those who complete the ascent within 18 minutes for elite riders, within 21 minutes for hobby/licensed men, and within 23 minutes for hobby/licensed women can consider themselves Top Guns in mountain biking.

On the 60 km route, however, the challenge starts at Lupo Bianco and is timed until Passo Sella (3,600 m route and 400 meters of elevation gain). Those who complete the AVIREX HERO Challenge within 45 minutes for elite men and within 50 minutes for elite women, hobby riders, and licensed can consider themselves Top Guns in mountain biking.


PRIZES

Those who complete the challenge will be able to take home an AVIREX HERO Challenge edition patch as a memento of their accomplishment.

The 2024 AVIREX HERO Challenge will have an overall ranking, where the top three in the overall standings who have achieved the best time in climbing Zallinger and Passo Sella will be awarded the following prizes:
