In recent years sport has become a phenomenon of large dimensions and it is an important resource for the development of a local context (Hautbois, Desbordes, 2008; Maier, Weber, 1993; Weed, Bull, 2004). The combination of physical and sports practices within a natural environment (outdoor) broadens the range of activities that people can choose in their free time (nordic walking, hiking, rediscovering rural districts, walking and cycling in urban spaces, etc.). The demand of this kind of activities is continuously evolving. Sports tourism is a new opportunity for the development of tourism offer. Cities, regions, rural areas, etc. through the exploitation of local resources, vocations and specializations can promote a destination in terms of reputation and tourism flows.
This research aims to stimulate a reflection on the role that the synergies between tourism and sport, combined with the use of resources, services and local products (cultural and artistic paths, local artefacts, wine tastings, etc.) may have for the development of a specific territory and its socio-economic environment.

practice ( Newell and Rosenbloom, 1981 ). However, in terms of the interaction between performance-influencing factors (i.e., biological, psychological and social domains), it is not yet clear what form this investment in development should take in order to reach the elite level ( Abbot and Collins, 2007 ; Ericsson et al., 1993 ; Matos et al., 2011 ).
In terms of ecological dynamics, it has been argued that sports performance involves an intentional adaptation to the constraints imposed by a specific context in performing a specific task ( Araújo and Davids, 2009
development (RFD max ) ( Maffiuletti et al., 2016 ).
Some authors have reported a strong positive relationship between the RFD max and F max achieved during MVCs ( Bellumori et al., 2011 ; Van Cutsem et al., 1998 ; Gołaś et al., 2016 ). Other research studies, however, have shown that the verbal instruction given by the investigator influenced RFD max measurement ( Bozic et al., 2012 ; Christ et al., 1993 ; Holtermann et al., 2007 ; Sahaly et al., 2001 ; Stastny et al., 2015 ). For instance, the recorded RFD max differed when subjects were asked to exert muscle

, “Differentiated Model of Giftedness and Talent (DMGT 2.0 framework)”, the environmental impacts as “environmental catalysts”, which have significant influence on an individual at both macroscopic and microscopic levels. Taken together, we can say that the aforementioned authors are in line with the Bronfenbrenner’s (2001) system theory approach to human development. Therefore, the success of an athlete is a multidimensional event that combines physical, mental and social factors.
If social change has an influence on sport, it can be logically concluded that the self
