Friday at 6 pm the twentieth edition
17 march 2015
  • Friday at 6 pm the twentieth edition of the Sellaronda  Skimarathon will set off from Selva in Val Gardena.
  • 1200 competitors will light up the Sella massif, but only a couple of teams will launch the attack to break the three hour barrier.

The adrenaline is tangible now, everything is ready for the twentieth edition of the Sellaronda Skimarathon which will set off on Friday 20th March at 6 pm from Selva di Val gardena. The 600 teams, that is 1200 competitors, will tackle the 42 kilomoters and more than 2700 meters of vertical height gain to conquer the four Dolomite passes, Gardena, Campolongo, Pordoi and Sella.
Teams from all over Europe will reach Val Gardena, as well as Italy, Austria , Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Denmark, Slovakia and Great Britain will be represented. Americans and Canadians will also be present.
As was announced during the press conference, Oswald Santin, coordinator of the Organizational Committee, states that there are the prerequisites for breaking the three hour barrier.
Last year Tadei Pivk and Pietro Lanfranchi crossed Canazei's finishing line stopping the stopwatch at 3:06'14", this year Pivk will race with the Spanish athlete Kilian Jornet Burgada, ski mountaineering and sky running champion, while Lanfranchi, has just confirmed his participation with the Swiss athlete Marcel Marti.
Another team which will give the Salomon-Crazy Idea a hard time will be the one made up of Anton Palzer (Team Dynafit) and by the Italian Damiano Lenzi (La Sportiva).
Anton Palzer is back racing after recovering from a knee injury obtained during the World Champs at Verbier.

  After his gold medal in the world champs team event, and winning the Pierra Menta a few days ago, Damiano Lenzi, is motivated and interested in writing his name on the Sellaronda's list of winners. Everything depends on his recovery time after Pierra Menta's backbreaking 10.000 meters of vertical height gain.
Among the outisders we will be seeing the team of Michele  Boscacci and Lorenzo Holzknecht. Michele Boscacci has just come back from Pierra Menta where he came in third while the athlete from Valtellina, Holzknecht, won the Kreuspitze Trophy last sunday on Val di Fiemme's snow, a competition named after Walter Nones. Others fighting for the podium will be the team of Bela Ladinia and As Cauriol made up of Filippo Beccari and Thomas Trettel. While Philip Götsch and Christian Hoffmann are among the foreign athletes who have a chance of placing well. 
Among the female athletes, Francesca Martinellu and Roberta Pedranzini (Alta Valtellina) hold the current record, 3:52'21, which was set last year, and they will defend themselves from the attacks of the team Martina Valmassoi and Elena Nicolini and the Crazy Idea team of Raffaella Rossi and Laura Besseghini. Among the foreign athletes the Austrian/Swiss team made up of Michaela Essi and Victoria Kreuzer has serious ambitions of making the podium. Among the top skiers we also find Anna and Lucia Moraschinelli.
The maximum time to complete the race has been set at 6 hours 15 minutes. The timed gates are the following: Corvara/Alta Badia: 1:20’ from the start; Arabba/Fodom: 2:55’ from the start;  Canazei/Val di Fassa: 4:25’ from the start. The new gate has been set 5 hours from the start near the Lupo Bianco passage in Val di Fassa. Even if the weather forecast is warm,  it is mandatory to carry the following gear in your backpack: primaloft thermal jacket, down jacket or softshell,  mittens and windbreaker pants.
