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.

Medical Assistance

Medical assistance for all participants is provided by the Austrian Red Cross. The field of competitors will be accompanied by ambulances along the entire route. Rescue vehicles are also available on the mountain passes of Kühtai, Brenner, Jaufenpass and Timmelsjoch. Additionally, an emergency helicopter is available and 5 emergency doctors accompany the race. In case of an accident, first aid on site is under the sole responsibility of the rescue organization and it is free of charge for the participant. If the injured person is taken to a doctor or hospital the rescue organization will charge transport costs separately. Any further transport or treatment costs must be paid by the participant him/herself. Reference is made to of the registration conditions and participation terms.

Broom Cars

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 30.08.2024. 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, 01.09.2024 by 9:00 pm. A later pick-up is only possible against a penalty of € 15,00. 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.
