Now in its 22nd year, the Bike Transalp is the grand tour of mountain biking, traversing the Alps from Tux in Tirol to Molveno in Italy in seven days in July 2019.
This is a bike expedition over the Alps, the rooftop of Europe. Spectacular mountain bike trails, breathtaking vistas, amazing mountain passes, picturesque villages and towns and cyclists from over 40 countries create an exceptional atmosphere and make it a perennial favourite in the mountain bike world. The course crosses the Alps from north to south and totals 550 kilometers, and for most of it, 500 teams of two are either going up or coming down.
Total climbing is 18,580 meters, and riders can expect to cross one or more mountain passes each day, for seven days. In its 22nd year, the race across mountainous terrain starts in Tirol, in the small village of Tux in Inner Zillertal Valley of Imst. Day one brings riders to Brixen in Italy’s South Tyrol. The route continues along St. Vigil, San Martino and Trento to Molveno in Trentino. The scenery is stunning, but it is the great feeling of achievement and the adrenaline that will be a long-lasting memory!
