The Val di Sole is ready to get serious again. Pure adrenaline and breathtaking scenery create the perfect combination of ingredients. A simple but effective recipe for hosting an event as unique as a UCI world championship. From 29 August to 11 September, the beautiful setting of Trentino will be stage to the exploits of some of mountain biking’s biggest stars, who will compete no-holds-barred in key disciplines of the sport: Downhill, Trials and Four-Cross and Master Downhill and Cross Country. The best riders in the world will alternate positions in front of the eyes of the many fans who will descend upon Val di Sole to breathe in the enthralling atmosphere, perfect for anyone who loves cycling, at all levels. The event is not just a special occasion for the best MTB riders in the world, but also for the many exhibitors who will take up position around the venue.
Selle Italia, increasingly focusing on the off-road market, will be present as official sponsor of the event. And we couldn’t not leave our mark on the occasion by creating a saddle dedicated to an event of such magnitude as a world championship: a special version of the Nepal, the off-road saddle par excellence, adorned with the logos and colours of the championship. A particularly fitting tribute that plays on the unique properties of a high-tech product that’s designed to handle the most strenuous of training rides and rugged of trails. A saddle born for adventure, which we felt would be the finest way to celebrate the encounter between these fantastic, daring racers.
