Tips

    The queen of all Alpine passes, a sweeping carousel that has no equal. 46 hairpin bends take you up the approximately 1,200 vertical meters from Gomagoi, Trafoi to the Franzenshöhe. The turns are numbered, so you know every tormenting meter how much you still have in front of you. Head against body, body against street. You can win the fight and conquer the highest road in the Eastern Alps in the face of the Ortlers.

    The 46 hairpin bends take off from Prad via Gomagoi, Trafoi and Franzenshöhe to the second highest asphalted mountain pass in Europe. Close to Trafoi, the cyclist has an unrestricted view of the glacier and rock formations of the Ortler group, which will not let them go to the top of the pass.

    The 48 hairpin bends of the Stelvio Pass from Prad are an absolute “must” for every racing cyclist and an experience that is second to none!
    The difference in altitude of a good 1800 meters is of course not without, but the route is only moderately steep and therefore easy to drive at the right speed. This leaves enough time and leisure to properly admire the spectacular mountain landscape! It is a special experience to venture out of the lovely Vinschgau with its apple orchards all the way to the high alpine region of the pass.
    If you want to really enjoy the experience, we strongly recommend that you get up early for it. Those who start with the summer sunrise at 5 or 6 o'clock in the morning have the road almost to themselves - neither the exhaust plumes nor the medieval rattle of the combustion engines of the “auto” -mobile faction will be missed in the slightest!

    The "Passo di Stelvio" with its 48 hairpin bends is an absolute must for every ambitious cyclist. Racing cyclists and mountain bikers alike get their money's worth here. It is exhilaratingly wonderful to drive up this route together and yet alone. "Together" because everyone has the same goal, "alone" because after a few kilometers and bends everyone has really developed their own rhythm that is adapted to this route. In the last hairpin bends it can happen that cyclists are overtaken by "roller riders" because these girls train there for the cross-country skiing season in winter, regardless of the weather.
    If you don't really want to race down the climbed route, you can drive back down over the Umbrail Pass (Switzerland), for example to Prad. This circular route makes a total of 70 km.

    The Stelvio Pass is one of the dream destinations for every racing cyclist. Both driveways are great, with the 48 bends at the foot of the Ortler on the east ramp of Prad nose-fed - but the variant of Bormio is really only marginally less impressive.

    You have to drive this road at least once in his racing bike life. It is an ultimate experience and also well achievable from the slope rates - you have to take your time to experience this road.

    If you venture from Prad up the good 25 km mountain at a stretch, should divide his forces well. The first ten kilometers to Trafoi are still rather "easy", on average 6% against the subsequent 15 kilometers but rather flat. Anyone who approaches Trafoi too fast will pay tribute afterwards. Then it goes partly ramps between 10-13% high, especially shortly before the summit gives you the last rest. Depending on the training level you should plan a good three hours for about 25 km. The traffic is not really helpful in the summer against the mountain and itself. A mountain suitable translation (11-34) is extremely helpful and one should not be too bad, these in the preparation for the Stelvio into consideration to draw. Anyone who has made it to the top, can really appreciate and proud you get a terrific view and has earned the photo honestly!

    on August 31 is car-free day on the Stilfser Joch, like every year at the end of August. Use the day to trample the beautiful road with hundreds of cyclists without traffic stress.
    It would be nice if the lock applies to all motorized bikes.

    An absolute must for every racing cyclist. A consistently impressive mountain panorama awaits you and pays for the effort. It is best to start very early in the week to escape the many, many cars and motorcycles.
