the "CAIDom" downhill

one of the longest and most beautiful downhill races in the world.

The name of the event, “Caidom”, combines the CAI Lodge and the DOM city square: the result is a Mountainbike Downhill Race (one of the longest and most beautiful in the world) from the highest mark of the city of Bressanone – the Plose peak (2.576 m) – all the way down to the city square (566 m) with its beautiful Dom Cathedral.
The first CaiDom was held in 2005, with only a few daredevils racing down from Mount Plose into the valley.
Over the years, the number of participating bikers and their skill levels grew; international bikers came, saw and conquered. Last year, the event had over 300 participants; a number which marked its organizational and traffic-related limits (Cable Car Plose – S. Andrea).

2009, beside the traditional CaiDom, also the alternative uphill-route DomCai was offered: the best bikers needed 1:41  hours for those more than 2,000 meters altitude difference; especially since the route technically and condition-wise is not differt much from the traditional Caidom - Downhill.
By request of the city of Bressanone, in 2009, the original Caidom route has again followed the traditional path (path 17 between Kreuztal and S. Andrea).
In addition to the winners of each category - uphill and downhill - the combination winner (DomCai and CaiDom) will enter the annals as the Plose King.
