In its seventh year, two stages of the “Tour of the Alps” will cross Tirol this April. The mountainous race features roughly 13,000 meters of climbing in five days of racing.
Five days of cycling passion: Crossing the three-part cross-border region comprising Trentino and its northern neighbour South Tyrol in Italy, as well as the Austrian Tirol, the demanding five-stage race is a top crowd pleaser. Race organisers hope the five days of racing will again attract many of the “Giro d’Italia” contenders looking to test their form two weeks out from the start of the Italian Grand Tour.
The 2024 edition sets off in Neumarkt, in Italy’s South Tyrol. Day two, which is April 16, 2024, begins in Salurn and ends across the border in Stans, in the Austrian Tirol Tyrol (189K). The tour continues from Schwaz along Reith, Kramsach, Jenbach and Weer. The last two days take competitors across South Tyrol and Tremtino to the finish in Levico Terme.
2024 Tour of the Alps riders have to tackle 13,250 meters of climbing in five days of racing, with a total distance of 709 kilometers.

The Tour of the Alps is part of the “UCI ProSeries”.
