SEE YOU IN 2021!

Strength is required to win the most important challenges.
While that is true, patience truly is key – knowing when the right moment is can make or break you. Speed will get you on to the highest podium, but that is not the only quality of a champion, so much so that sometimes a restless cyclist may not meet their most important goals.

During this emergency, and at a time when the first shy signs of recovery can be seen on the horizon, we cannot allow ourselves to miss the real finishing line. The most important one for us, our loved ones, and everyone that is on the front line fighting this war every day. Patience is everything.

The BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites is our ‘home game’, a race held at the foot of our Dolomites. You know how much it means to us: it is not only the ‘toughest mountain bike race in the world’, but the day in which we celebrate all our HEROEs with unrivalled passion and joie de vivre.

For this reason, we have decided to postpone the BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites to next year in June 2021. To protect the safety of all participants and their loved ones, out of respect for who is fighting on the front line, and to celebrate the HERO in that lively and participative atmosphere that we all know so well.

A painful but necessary choice which also impacts the calendar of the HERO World Series’ first edition: it would not make any sense to have a two-stage race, i.e. the former HERO Dubai on 7 February and the upcoming HERO Thai on 10 October.

We decided to launch the HERO World Series 2021 to fully experience the emotions of this new adventure. The new edition will kick off in Thailand in October 2020, followed by the 2021 Hero Dubai, and will end with the 2021 BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites. Get ready for an even bigger and livelier celebration in the HERO’S birthplace.

The fees for the HERO Thai 2020 will still be valid, and the BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites 2020 fee will be ‘frozen’ and used as a credit for the next edition, which will also represent the final stage of the HERO World Series 2021. For the 2021 edition of the HERO Dubai, a new registration will be required.

The BMW HERO Südtirol Dolomites will see you next year – we still hope we can see you cycling on the Dolomites before then, training to tackle the next HERO events in tip-top shape!!
