Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
Planned by Kufsteinerland
2018 was a very special year for Tyrol, especially for Innsbruck and Kufstein. Because 2018 took place here the UCI wheel WM, which with the street race of the elite gentlemen climaxed. The racetrack led the riders from Kufstein to Innsbruck, where some demanding "loops" awaited them before they had to drive back to Kufstein. A whopping 258 kilometers and 4,670 meters of altitude were needed for the pros to master. With this tour, you will follow in the footsteps of racers. However, on a clearly defused route, which still has 149 kilometers in length but still in itself. Between Kufstein and Hall, it largely corresponds to the route that the professionals also raced last summer.You start at the Kufsteiner city square and can probably imagine only vaguely what was going on here, as the peloton slowly began to move under the cheers of the audience. Instead, you can enjoy the tranquility and the magnificent Alpine panorama and soon reach the first climb to the sun plateau, on which the first racers could already set off from the field. The descent after that is steep and has it all. Along quiet roads you then pass the Reintaler lakes, climb the high plateau Gnadenwald on a long climb and head for Hall, where a visit to the beautiful old town is worthwhile. Here at the turning point of the round you deserve a long break.On the way back, you can enjoy the dead straight roads along the Inn and look forward to some nice highlights along the way. How about a trip to the pilgrimage chapel Mariastein or to the smallest old town in Tyrol, Rattenberg? Shortly before the goal of the tour, one last small climb awaits you, which brings you to the plateau of Angerberg, before you reach your destination in Kufstein exhausted but satisfied.
