Description

After taking over from the paragliders, the course goes through the town towards the ‘Ladies’ Start’. Form the ‘Ladies’ Start’, the cyclists go over the ski piste in the direction of Moosalm. From Moosalm, the course leads straight to the Moosalm reservoir, then to the right onto the ‘Stadtweg’. At the junction of Sternalm and Taxer Gassl is the first drinks station. The course then continues along the direction indicated to the Hochsteinhütte viewing point. The second drinks station is at Glanzeralm. The route then follows a forest path to Hochsteinhütte. Just before path reaches the Hochsteinkreuz it finishes and bikes need to be carried again. Upon reaching the ridge, the course continues (in a truncated way) around the Gamperlehütte and back to the Hochsteinhütte. This is where the downhill section to Leisach starts. Ski gates show the way to the bikers. Going past the Sternalm, Moosalm and Gribelehof, the course races over forest paths, ski slopes and gravel roads to the finish in Leisach. A detailed route description will follow as soon as everything has been agreed with the landowners!

Info

  • The uphill section is subject to change. The exact downhill route will be marked out thoroughly two days before the event and made available for viewing.

  • Tips: Knowing the exact route is an advantage, as always. It is definitely worth taking a trip over the course at least once or twice to avoid any nasty surprises. The bike should be as light as possible for the uphill section and as robust as possible for the downhill part.

  • Downhill: the course runs down the men’s H2000 downhill ski run: Hochsteinkreuz,
Sternalm, ‘Ladies’ start’, Moosalm, Alban Lakata Trail and finishes in Leisach.

  • Safety signs around the course recommend decreasing speed at certain points! Watch out for these at all times!!

  • Training for the event is done at every participant’s own risk. The course is open for inspection only. Sponsorship on headgear is reserved by the organisers!

  • 5. Help from others (strictly forbidden in any form!)
