For the 31st time in August 2019, everyone can try to tackle the hallowed ground of Hahnenkamm Mountain by mountain bike: The course includes a nasty 909 vertical meters & gradients of up to 16%.
Now in its 30th year, the annual Hahnenkamm Mountain Bike Race starts at 11:00am in Kitzbühel and finishes at the Hochkitzbühel On-Mountain Restaurant on August 15, 2018. Each year, hundreds of mountain bikers race up the mountain along the world’s most blood-curdling downhill ski racecourse for men, called the “Streif”. It’s a wicked, twisting, insane snake of a run; one filled with unforgiving grade steeps, challenging an international roster of top athletes for an incredible weekend of racing each January. Elevation gain on the 9.2K course is 909 meters, with gravel roads and gradients of up to 16 percent. Spectators will cheer up the athletes on the sun-filled outdoor patio of Hochkitzbühel On-Mountain Restaurant, where the award ceremony will be held in the afternoon by 2:00pm.
