Road bike alpine passes

The stuff of legends: the alpine passes

Whether Germany, Austria, Italy or Slovenia – these countries all have famous pass roads. They cast a spell over road bikers – so much so that they want to tackle them again and again. The pass roads have long had cult status as pilgrimage sites for road bikers.

This type of challenge is the be-all and end-all for most road bikers. It’s all about comparing yourself with the heroes of this sport: cycling in the tracks of Marco Pantanis or Jan Ullrich and conquering world-famous passes such as the Grödner Joch in the Dolomites or the Stilfserjoch – anyone who achieves this deserves to feel like a hero!

Be there when road bike history is written! With the combination of an outstanding network of paths, spectacular mountain backdrops and frenetic fans, the Transalp or classics such as the Dolomites tour and Maratona dles Dolomites are predestined to create a unique race atmosphere. Feeling the magic of the big races cheering on your idols live or being part of the start line-up are undoubtedly some of the absolute highlights of a road biker’s career.
