The Iron Bike offers a hardcore week of mountain bike racing in the glorious surroundings of the Italian Alps. Over seven stages and eight days you’ll cover 700km in distance and 22km of climbs and will be spending up 12 hours a day on your bike. With only 50% of riders surving the week it’s fair to say this isn’t the first stage race you should enter. The Iron Bike will test you through high altitude climbs, technical descents and special timed stages. You may not be able to walk properly for a week at the end of the race but you’ll be left with the smug sense of achievement having tackled one of the sternest challenges on two wheels.
