Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
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 bends of the Stelvio Pass are an absolute "must" for every racing cyclist and an experience that is second to none!
Of course, the altitude difference of over 1800 meters is not without, but the track is only moderately steep and therefore good to drive at the right speed. So enough time and leisure to admire the spectacular mountain landscape! It is already a special experience, from the lovely Vinschgau with its apple orchards on their own to advance into the high alpine region of the pass.
If you really want to enjoy the experience, you should definitely get up early. Anyone who starts with the summer sunrise at 5 or 6 o'clock in the morning, the road has almost alone - neither the exhaust fumes nor the medieval rattle of the internal combustion engines of the "auto" mobile faction you will miss even the slightest!

The "Passo di Stelvio" with its 48 bends is an absolute must for every ambitious cyclist. Here are racing cyclists and mountain bikers at their expense. It is intoxicating wonderful to drive this route together and yet alone. "Together", because everyone has the same goal, "alone", because after a few kilometers and turns everyone has developed their own rhythm adapted to this track. In the final bends it can happen that cyclists are overtaken by "skateboarding" as these girls train there for the cross-country ski season in winter, whatever the weather.
If you do not want to rush downhill again, you can head down the Umbrailpass (Switzerland), for example to Prad. This circuit makes a total of 70 km.

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!

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.

In everyday life, the countless motorcyclists, who are often ruthless and with a lot of noise on the go, spoil the fun. An absolute experience, however, is to be on the annual cycling day at the end of August, when the pass is closed for car and motorcycle traffic, here with thousands of other cyclists. On top of that, there are even free food stations on this day!

A great experience is the car-free cycling day, where you can ride the pass with hundreds of like-minded people without exhaust fumes and engine noise. z. Eg 2019 on 31.8. As a return trip, the Umbrailpass offers where you can then comfortably roll back through Val Mustair to the starting point.
