Ötztaler Radmarathon
goes ROUVY

Ötztaler Cycle Marathon seals partnership with ROUVY

Sweating, tormenting, cheering and battling – That’s now also possible virtually from 08 to 28 February 2021. The legendary mountain stages of the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon can be conquered virtually during this period. The offer includes a three-week challenge along the marathon route and a mountain race on 06 March. Even if it feels different virtually, a lot remains the same: Kühtai, Brenner, Jaufen pass, Timmelsjoch and almost 5500 altitude meters.

The Ötztaler Cycle Marathon. A myth that celebrates already its 40th edition this year. Fortunately, a long compulsory break is now coming to an end. Preparations for the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon on 29 August 2021 have long since begun. For both the organizers and the ambitious participants. In order to increase the thrill of anticipation, the arduous Alpine passes will also be available to all ROUVY members virtually from 08 February onwards. There is hardly a better training than the original race track. The long-term partners and sponsors of the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon are also very happy about the virtual presence. “We are very pleased that we can count on our loyal partners TREK, Garmin, PowerBar and Tirol also if it comes to special projects. The hard haul of the Ötztaler has been going on for longer than we feared and it is time to offer our participants and loyal fans something at home too. Rouvy makes the ideal platform for this purpose,” states Dominic Kuen, head of OC.

 

The Challenge

For entire three weeks, from 08 to 28 February, racing cyclists from all around the globe will have the unique opportunity to prove themselves in the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon ROUVY Challenge. It is important to master the legendary mountain stages of the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon within the specified time. The finishers can also look forward to a virtual Ötztaler Cycle Marathon Batch.

 

The Race

On 06 March at 4.00 pm, things will get serious. Every ROUVY member can take part in the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon Mountain Race. One of the four Alpine passes - Kühtai, Brenner, Jaufen pass or Timmelsjoch – has to be conquered. The community will decide which Alpine pass will be on the program. You can vote during the challenge between 08 and 28 February. The final route of the race will be announced on March 1st.
