The Challenge was a good start to the racing season and gives participants the opportunity to take home a little piece of the Oetztal Cycle Marathon. Over 4300 riders registered, around 1500 were able to gain the virtual finisher batch. After the three-week acclimatization period, it is now down to the nitty-gritty with a mountain race on 06 March 2021 at 04.00 pm. During the challenge period, every participant could vote for their favourite Oetztal Cycle Marathon climb. One of the four alpine passes Kühtai, Brenner, Jaufenpass or Timmelsjoch will be ridden. The pass with the most votes will be crowned as the race route for the virtual ROUVY race. The result was clear.
