Tough, tougher, Ötztaler...
A cycle marathon of real superlatives: 5500 altitude meters and 4 Alpine passes have to be conquered on a total distance of 238 km. Only with your own muscle power and a cast-iron will. From Sölden the loop track leads to South Tyrol and back to the starting point. To master this ultimate challenge is considered a long-cherished dream for many athletes. Among thousands of interested athletes every year, only 4000 have the opportunity to make their dream come true. They can look forward to one of the highly coveted and limited starting places. Every year on the first Sunday in September, the "Ötztaler" myth attracts cycling enthusiasts from all over the world. After some exhausting mountain stages many participants have reached their personal goal by passing the finish line. The registration period starts already in February, so just try your luck online!
