A.S.D. Spiquy Team

The team’s name is inspired by the words Spina and Quaternà, two places located in the heart of the Dolomites, accessible via the Pedalonga route.

Over the years the organisation has grown in size thanks to the involvement of many local people and volunteers who believe in the project. Over the course of just a few years the Spiquy Team has become accredited in the field of regional and national cycling, becoming one of the most important circuits, in active collaboration with the National Federation.

The Spiquy Team’s desire to get young people to feel passionate about sports and nature, and to appreciate and love the mountains is at the heart of everything we do. In fact, our basic technical mountain bike courses are very popular.

Today the Spiquy Team consists of over 100 mountain-bike and road-bike enthusiasts, who travel through the Dolomites – especially during the spring and summer months – both in competitions, and on excursions with the simple objective of immersing themselves in nature.

2009 marked an important step in the history of the Spiquy Team: the desire to offer a winter sports event allowed us to broaden our vision. And so, the Pitturina Ski Race was born, an initiative that has distinguished itself in the world of ski mountaineering over the course of just a few years.

Today, our determined and passionate team devotes itself to organising sporting events and initiatives that are aimed at young people, highlighting the positive values of sport and the extraordinary landscape of an uncontaminated and incomparable region such as Val Comelico, in the heart of the Dolomites.
