2008 MTB Marathon World Championships in Tyrol

The International Cycling Union (UCI) has appointed Villabassa/Alta Pusteria in South Tyrol, Italy, as the venue for the 2008 Marathon World Championships. On the occasion of the Cross Country World Championships in Zeddam, Netherlands, last January, the organizing committee of the World Cup event "Südtirol Dolomiti Superbike" was chosen from the other candidates like Cortina D'Ampezzo, Italy, Kirchzarten, Germany, and Madrid, Spain.

The course and the landscape of the Dolomites mountains of the Dolomiti Superbike attracts the largest number of competitors in Italy, with around 3,000 participants each year. This year's race, which features a new course measured by GPS, will be held on July 9, 2006.
