To Hike the Brenta Dolomites is Extremely Dangerous, but to ride it on a Mountain Bike is Utter Craziness
If you’ve ever had the guts to ever hike the Brenta Dolomites in the Rhaetian Alps you probably know how dangerous it is. Pro Biker Harald Philipp decided to take it a step further and mountain bike down!
Now lets be honest here, this is for hikers and you’d have to have steel nerves and not look down even when strapped onto a via farrata. After watching the video, you’d think there is absolutely no place for a bike there but we’ve been proven wrong before.
After reflecting on his ride, Harald Philipp had this to say:
“I honestly don’t want to do this ride again. It’s stupidly dangerous, feels triple as exposed as it looks and there is a lot more uphill-climbing and ladders involved than the video shows.”
Watch this amazing video filed using a drone of Harald Philipp as he climbs and mountain bikes down turning fear into pure joy.
