In its sixth year, the first two stages of the “Tour of the Alps” will cross Tirol this April. The mountainous race features roughly 15,000 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 2023 edition sets off in Rattenberg, in the Austrian Tirol, and takes competitors to Alpbach along a 127-kilometer route. Day two begins in Reith im Alpbachtal and ends across the border in Ritten, in Italy’s South Tyrol (165K). The tour continues along Brentonico San Valentino, Rovereto, Predazzo and Cavalese to the finish in Bruneck.
2023 Tour of the Alps riders have to tackle almost 15,000 meters of climbing in five days of racing, with a total distance of 752.6 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 46th year in 2023. The Tour of the Alps is part of the “UCI ProSeries”.
