Val di Sole keeps working on the preparation of the grand final of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup 2015 presented by Shimano, not only by polishing the race track for an amazing final, but also by setting up an incredibly warm welcome for the thousands of enthusiasts that will be there during the race days: fantastic organization, entertainment and a very special place to enjoy by bike.
Only one ticket, but loads of entertainment
There is an important change for the spectators: for the first year there is a ticket to buy to attend the event. Val di Sole adopted the same guidelines followed by the other hosts of the World Cup UCI and set up an entry ticket to access the course and watch the race. The price is 10 euro for the one-day ticket and 15 euro for two days: the XCO will take place on Saturday while the DH race will go on during the Sunday, in reverse order compared to the previous editions. During Friday, access to the 4X final will be free. Children under 12 years qualify for free entry. The tickets are already available and they can be bought on-line on the official web-page valdisolebikeland.com. The ticket gives access to the racecourse during the event, but it also includes a number of services and shows that will make complete the experience for all the enthusiasts that will come to enjoy the final days of the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup.
The tickets offer full access to all public areas, both in the finish line area and along the racecourse, so it will be important to get a front row spot to watch this memorable grand final. For those that will choose to watch the race from the finish line, not a single moment of the race will be missed, thanks to the massive screen showing the real-time images by RedBull TV, with cameras located at the ‘hottest’ spots along the race track. The seating will be limited, subject to availability. The same ticket gives access to the expo area, free WiFi in the team area and offers a 50% discount for the purchase of the ticket for the cable car that takes you up to the start line area.
Besides the race, a number of shows will take place, including that of Stihl Timbersports, a spectacular performance of woodcutters, with the Italian champion Paolo Vicenzi, and that of paragliding Fall With Style, with the Acro Team. Beside those, a rock gig with the Punkreas, the famous Italian punk band with more than 25 years of success. And there is more: to entertain the public parkour performances will also take place while the company OZO Big Air Bag will be available for those that will let their own freestyle nature go. Those that will take their children to the event will be able to make their little athletes take part to the Mini World Cup for free.

Endless opportunities for those on holiday in Val di Sole
The schedule is packed with events during the race days but the organizing staff recommend visitors to stretch their stay in Val di Sole a little longer and, most of all, to bring their bikes. The valley offers plenty of things to do, for example for those who fancy relaxing with the family there is a 35 km-long cycle-route along the river Noce while for those who are attracted by enduro riding there are a number of trails that flow throughout pristine nature, facing the panorama of stunning mountains such as Dolomiti del Brenta and the group Ortles-Cevedale.
Moreover, this summer there is a special offer for those who spend their holiday in an affiliated structure, with the interesting initiative called Trentino Guest Card – Val di Sole Opportunity. Thanks to the card, with an extra payment of only one euro, many other offers are available, especially to enjoy outdoor activities, wellness plans and cultural programmes.
Thanks to the Trentino Guest Card – Val di Sole Opportunity more than 10 lifts can be accessed with and without bikes, together with bus and trains free to use on the Trento-Malé-Marilleva 900 line and other routes. Transportation Train + Bike is also included as well as the Bike Bus within the whole Val di Sole. Included are also other offers such as: testers of the thermal water of Pejo and Rabbi, entries to a number of museums, historical attractions, castles, fortifications and natural sites.
