In its fifth year, the last two stages of the “Tour of the Alps” will cross Tirol in April. The mountainous race features 13,750 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 2022 Tour of the Alps will start in Cles in Trentino and continues across Primiero/S. Martino di Castrozza and Lana in South Tyrol to Niederdorf and Kals am Großglockner in Tirol with the finish in Lienz, the capital of East Tirol.
2022 Tour of the Alps riders have to tackle almost 13,750 meters of climbing in five days of racing, with a total distance of 719 kilometers. Formerly the “Giro del Trentino” (“Tour of Trentino”) until 2016, the race was re-branded as the Tour of the Alps in 2017 and is in its 45th year in 2022. The Tour of the Alps is part of the “UCI ProSeries”.
