Announcement & Regulations
The “Race Across The Alps” with start and finish in the Reschenpass municipality of Nauders is considered by racing cyclists to be the toughest one-day event in the world.
This extreme cycling event takes place annually in June and is a great physical and mental challenge for the participants.
The mountain roads to be ridden on have illustrious names and are mostly on the terrain of the Giro d`Italia and well-known Tour de Suisse stages. These include the Stelvio Pass, Gavia Pass, the Italian ski station Aprica, the extremely steep Mortirolo, Albula, Fluela, Umbrail and the Ofen Pass.
The participants master the course together with their crews, who are in their respective support vehicles. There must be at least two persons with a driving licence in the support vehicle. The reason for this is, among other things, that the drivers of the support vehicle have to change over after five hours at the latest. The crew also serves to supply the cyclist; however, this may only be done at parking spaces or in a lay-by, under no circumstances from a moving car. The Race Across The Alps is navigated with the help of the road book provided by the race management, which the participants receive at the briefing.

The race admits up to 45 long-distance riders who are able to complete the almost 525 km distance, including the 14,500 metres of altitude difference, within 32 hours.
