    Marco - Managing Director:
    “The first time I drove this 80 km trip was in 2004. Or maybe 2005? It was definitely early June because the scenery was a mix of green valleys with pleasant temperatures and white snow peaks in the mountains. It was a day that offered everything that mountain biking has to offer: great views, single trails, great mountain huts and a little pushing. Standing at 3,100m is a great reward, especially when you know that downhill fun is still to come. ”
    The Madritschjoch is an absolute MTB classic, although not a small thing: almost 3000 vertical meters have to be overcome over 80 kilometers. Fortunately, with an overnight stay at the spectacularly located Schaubachhütte, it is no problem to split the distance over at least two days. You still have to master the majority of the vertical meters in one go. Due to the extreme conditions, we recommend riding either a hardtail or an e-mountain bike.On the first 25 kilometers from Latsch to Prad, everything is initially easy, beautiful in terms of landscape and undemanding in terms of gradient. With the start of the driveway (by the way, this is also the legendary Stelvio Pass) you are already warmed up.Now the endurance test follows: The next 15-20 kilometers are uphill, in the end with extreme gradients up to 30 percent. You probably won't be able to drive everything (plan with as little luggage as possible!). But on the Madritschjoch there is an unprecedented view of the high Alps, which will quickly make you forget all the hardships.Now the pleasure part of the tour begins. From now on it is almost only downhill on a mixture of trails and gravel roads. Only at Morterer Leger there are a few counter-climbs, which are not worth mentioning in comparison to the Madritschjoch. At the end of the tour you can really congratulate yourself - anyone who survives this tour (whether on a day or two) is a real bike machine.Incidentally, the distance can be shortened easily if you let yourself be driven from Latsch to Prad in the morning. So it is only 55 kilometers and a few meters less.
