Sellaronda Skimarathon
Pivk and Barazzuol
  • Tadei Pivk (ITA) and Filippo Barazzuol (ITA) are the winners of the 22° Sellaronda Skimarathon, which started and finished in Arabba in the province of Belluno.
  • Success for Martina Valmassoi (ITA) and Viktoria Kreuzer (SUI) in the female race.
  • All the organizers, coordinated by Oswald Santin can consider themselves satisfied.

Right on time at 6 pm the 22nd edition of the Sellaronda Skimarathon set off from Arabba in the Province of Belluno. The itinerary’s first variant made the athletes detour up the tough section of the “Lezuo” ski slope towards Passo Pordoi, which is usually reached by the more gradual ascent of Pont de Vauz. The same thing happened at Passo Pordoi, which was tackled along Sass Becè which lies level with the ski slopes of Belvedere. There were many teams among the male athletes considered to be favourites for the winning position at the beginning of the race, looking to win the 4.000 euros prize money. The race’s record was a no brainer since there were too many variants from the original itinerary and this would not have allowed an equal comparison. The first two mountain passes, Pordoi and Sella, were tackled from Lupo Bianco, since it was impossible to reach the town of Canazei in Val di Fassa and as forecast were reached by the first teams with no great battles. The going got tough up the last two ramps, and before that moment the race consisted of pure tactics and the athletes mutually observing each other.
Up the third ascent from Selva di Val Gardena towards Dantercepies to Passo Gardena it was the teams Philip Götsch/Christian Hoffmann, Filippo Barazzuol/Tadei Pivk and Filippo Beccari/Martin Stofner who dictated the pace, as they prepared for the descent with a section on foot leading to Corvara in Alta Badia and then the last ascent, which was a lot more difficult this year, towards Passo Campolongo. Among the women it was the athlete from Belluno Martina Valmassoi and the Swiss Viktoria Kreuzer who were ahead of everyone along the third ascent, thanks to their sustained rhythm.
The first to ski down from Dantercepies was the team Tadei Pivk/Filippo Barazzuol with approximately 30 seconds advantage over Bazzana/Collé,

while Götsch/Hoffmann paid the consequences of a crisis experienced by the Austrian who had to tie in, and they had to settle for third provisional position. All positions were confirmed on the last transition point at Corvara, after the unprecedented section on foot along a dirt and asphalt path which joins Colfosco to the transition area in Val badia.
Along the last ascent, instead of passing from Planac, this year the race took the athletes up high on the Boè slope, and at this point the end result for the 2017 podium seemed clear: Pivk/Barazzuol were ahead followed by Bazzana/Collé and Götsch/Hoffmann. A sustained pace was dictated by the expert Guido Giacomelli and the local athlete from Val Badia Michael Molling who tried to catch up with the third team just before skiing over the pass. At Bec de Roces, the last transition area appointed the winners of the 22nd Sellaronda Skimarathon with a final time of 2:52.03 over a total distance of 42 kilometres and a total of 2.700 m vertical height gain: the winners were the athlete from Friuli Tadej Pivk and the athlete from Piedmont Filippo Barazzuol. Second place instead went to Fabio Bazzana/Franco Collé who came in ahead of Philipp Götsch/Christian Hoffmann, separated respectively from the winners by +2.43 and +3.39. It is the fourth victory in five editions for Tadei Pivk, won each time with four different team members. Suspense in the female race along the last ascent where the team in front Valmassoi/Kreuzer suffered problems with the Swiss athlete’s head lamp which slowed them down along the downhill section. The athlete from Friuli Dimitra Teocharis and the Austrian athlete Verena Krenslehner-Schmid took advantage of the situation nearing the two race leaders very dangerously. Everything was decided along the last descent, where Valmassoi/Kreuzer maintained their 12 second lead right up to the finish line, wining the 22nd edition of the Sellaronda Skimarathon with the total time of 3:45.02. Third,11 minutes later, the Italian athletes Corinan Ghirardi and Tatiana Locatelli.
The mixed category was won by the couple from Vipiteno Birgit Stuffer/Alexander Polig with the time of 3:41.04 in front of the Austrian team Verena Hoffmann/Daniel Aschbacher (+3.30) and the second Austrian team Marita Kröhn/Niklas Kröhn (+4.43).
Diego Perathoner
Ahead with your ideas!
Founding father of the SELLARONDA SKIMARATHON

Over twenty years ago in Canazei three or four friends with a great passion for ski mountaineering, one autumn evening while chatting away in a pub, “invented” the SELLARONDA SKIMARATHON. A few months later with the first snowfall they set off at night to give their dream a go, “ the 4 passes” . They spent almost all night on the slopes. At the beginning they discussed all the organizational aspects, above all deciding whether it was better to tackle the circuit clock-wise or anti-clockwise, as well as where to tackle the ascent to Passo Campolongo (Bec de Roces).

One of those friends was Diego Perathoner, who in ’95 decided to organise the “Tour of the 4 passes” with skins. He thus became the head of the Organizational Committee coordinating the four Ladin valleys which surround the Sella massif to initiate this innovative project. He also had the bright idea of rotating the starting/arrival town each year to give each valley a turn. If there were only 100 couples at the starting line of the first edition over the years it became the world’s most famous ski mountaineering race on groomed slopes, in fact after its 6th edition Diego had to put a limit on the number of athletes registering.

The first 5-6 editions were dominated by the legendary couple Chicco Pedrini and Fabio Meraldi, a few years later they handed over their crown to Hansjorg Lunger and Guido Giacomelli.

A few editions were very difficult to organize due to the severe weather conditions, with strong winds and heavy snowfalls all the Organizational Committee was put to the test.

The 5th edition was especially difficult for Diego Perathoner, where Corvara had to take over from Selva in Val Gardena as start/arrival location.

In 2009 he had to make the most difficult decision: cancel the competition a few hours before the start. The controversy which followed hurt Diego deeply and became hard for him to forget.

During the same year, on 26th December, Diego Perathoner lost his life, together with his three friends from the Mountain Rescue team, during a rescue on the Sella massif. All of a sudden the SELLARONDA SKIMARATHON lost its founding father, its president, its soul. For a moment the idea of not continuing with the event developed, but the Perathoner family gave strong signals to push ahead with his work. In 2010, in a joint effort, the volunteers of all four Ladin valleys organized the first edition without Diego.

To go ahead with this prestigious event is one of the best ways to honour and remember Diego Perathoner. The organizational committee’s leitmotiv is:

“INANT CON TIA IDEES” --- Move forward with your ideas
