CHECKING THE TRACK OF MARCIALONGA

News date12.11.2018

The President Corradini and the experts have checked the track conditions after the storm damage
The province and the municipalities have worked to fix the damaged stretches
Maybe 67 km instead of 70 Km, with the turning point of Molina anticipated at Maso Novelli
The works have already begun, snow will be produced as soon as possible

The huge damage following the storm at the end of October, which struck the North-East of Italy – especially the region of Trentino – did not spare the Fiemme and Fassa Valleys, which will host the 46th Marcialonga on January 27th.
After a careful inspection with the operating staff, the President Angelo Corradini gathered the people involved in the construction of the track and in the snow production to work together, in order to ensure the organisation of the race. More than 7,500 competitors from all over the world will take place to an event that guarantees a significant economic return to the territory and the tourism sector.
Before the meeting, Corradini and the director Davide Stoffie had met many managers of the Province of Trento, who guaranteed the support of the Province in arranging the damaged cycle track that runs along the river Avisio, also thanks to the service Bacini Montani. Corradini and Stoffie had already met all the municipal administrations of both valleys, and the Mayors also ensured maximum collaboration.
From Moena to Cavalese, passing through Predazzo, Ziano and the territory of Molina, the damage can all be repaired. Many sections of the track have literally disappeared, but with the intervention of the Bacini Montani – also to secure the riverbed – of the municipalities and of the experts of Marcialonga everything will be rebuilt in record time. There is only one stretch that seems impossible to be recovered, i.e. the first part of the track segment returning from Molina to Cascata, which has completely been engulfed by River Avisio. Thus, the 46th Marcialonga will probably be shortened by about 3 kilometres. The turning point will be set up in Maso Novelli, also thanks to the availability of the owners of the farm. Nothing changes from the technical point of view; it is a flat track before the steep climb of the Cascata, at the foot of which there will be the refreshment point, which is usually provided in Molina, and the last closing gate.
The solution to the big problem of the bridge of Cascata, which has been dragged away by the impetus of Avisio, has also been planned. The works have already begun; a temporary metal bridge will be temporary built, which will guarantee access to the last climb of the Cascata.
There is no doubt, the race will take place. 67 instead of 70 km? For someone it will be a godsend: after a long race, even 3 km less are a dream...
