Assistance on the race course
All you need for cyclists & bicycles
The Ötztaler Cycle Marathon has it all. This very exhausting race pushes all athletes to their limit. Assistants will support them in case of emergency and provide the cyclists with everything they need before, during and after the start of the marathon. In addition to the medical assistance of cyclists along the entire route, there is also a repair service for bicycles and wheels available. Personal valuables, food or other items can be deposited or taken back to the single refreshment stations upon request. And when there is no way forward, the broom buses take participants and bicycles back to Sölden again. We would particularly like to thank the huge number of volunteers for their expert assistance on site.
Participants who give up on the race track are strongly recommended to stay on the course and to wait for one of the countless "Broom Buses". The event organizer will also publish the exact broom car locations on several information boards on 28 August 2020. The broom bus stations can be found near inns and gas stations along the entire marathon course, and especially in areas where the cyclists have enough space to wait for the next broom bus. The organizer does not accept any responsibility for damaged bicycles in the broom buses, during the race, at the refreshment stations and in the Bike Park. Reference is made to of the registration conditions and participation terms. Bicycles and cyclists are taken back safely to Sölden but in separate cars.
The bicycles are brought to the Bike Park which can be found close to the finish area - at the music pavilion. You can pick up your bicycle on presentation of your starting number. The opening hours of the Bike Park will be announced on the information boards from Friday onwards.
All bicycles must be picked up on Sunday, 30.08.2020 by 9:00 pm. A later pick-up is only possible against a penalty of € 15. The pick-up location of the bicycles after the bike park opening hours will be announced on the information boards at 9:00 pm.
Along the marathon course, the organizer provides a number of repair services available for all cyclists. Service motorbikes can help with minor repairs only. But there are also fully equipped service cars guided by experts who can help almost in any situation. This service is free of charge but the repair material required must be paid separately.
In addition, all refreshment stations have a permanent service point. In most cases it can be found at the very end of the refreshment area and it is marked with a clearly visible "SERVICE FLAG". certain repair works can be made on the spot. Here the service is free of charge, too, but the material must be paid separately.
All participants can take advantage of the transport service for personal things to special stations close to the refreshment areas, and they can as well leave things at the predefined stations along the course. There are separate bags (in 4 different colors) for all 4 deposit stations - Please note that each participant receives 1 bag on presentation of his voucher (can be found on the bib number) and that only this bag is accepted at the station. Besides clothes you can leave also food in your bag.
Important: drinking bottles must either be totally empty (NO liquids!) or can contain powder. Enough water is available at all refreshment stations. The organizer does not accept any liability for deposited items. Reference is made to of the registration conditions and participation terms.
