About Markus

Ich bin gebürtiger Innviertler den es zum Studieren nach Innsbruck zog. Während der Studienzeit gab es den Sommer über nichts anderes als Mountainbikeguiden und eine Transalp wurde immer direkt an die nächste gereiht. Noch vor dem Abschluss des Meteorologie Studiums begann dann die Laufbahn als Bergführer um das Arbeitsfeld etwas vielfältiger zu gestalten. Somit stehe ich jetzt im Winter fast jeden Tag auf Skiern und im Sommer primär am Bike, bei Fahrtechnikkursen, Singletrail Reisen und bei der Ausbildung von neuen Bikeguides.
Bitte beim Nachfahren meiner Touren immer die Trail Rules beachten:
1. Respektiere den Berg. ⛰
2. Respektiere den Weg.
3. Respektiere alle Wegenutzer.
4. Respektiere dein Können.
Also keine Abkürzungen in den Spitzkehren, die Anzahl der Bremsspuren gering halten und seid freundlich zu allen denen ihr am Berg begegnet. Viel Spaß, und tut euch nicht weh.

      Day 4 is only half a day because we also had to go back to Ischgl, but it's a real classic again. Namely the Madritschjoch. Lonely in September and you have to be lucky with the snow. Interestingly, I had less this time than this year in August 😂. The trails have a few S3 spots, the trail after the dam is even rated as S4 / S5. (At least the last part) So if you are primarily looking for flow, you should switch to the street at the Paradishotel down in the valley.

      Day 3 goes first over the Passo Alpisella and then over the Bochetta di Forcola, in the most sensible direction: from south to north. The old military path is simply much cooler uphill than downhill and as a bonus there is also the flow trail to the Umbrail Pass. From the Stilfserjoch down we are then the famous BimBam Trail. Attention here to the time regulation: No biking before 4:00 p.m.

      Day 2 was the longest day of our e-bike trail cross this year. You actually ride flow trails all day, both uphill and downhill. There are a total of 5 passes and the landscape is a dream most of the time. Two 625Wh batteries are compulsory. 😎 Uphill there are one or the other key point. Maybe you have to push 2-3 times. With solid driving technique, the sliding points are very short.

      Thanks to the fantastic September weather, I did another late E-Bike Trailcross tour over the Alps this year. Here is the first day. The cable car in Ischgl was already closed, so it was a classic way to get to the Fimbapass from below. But easy with e-mtb. The uphill trail is also just plain fun. All the classic trails were built in on the descent and after a short lunch break above Scuol, we went straight on towards Passo Costainas. At Alp Astras, however, go up to the right and take all the trails with you again until you come out directly at the Ofenpass. If the battery lasts, then this is definitely the nicest option. 😎

      Last day 🤩🥳. From Serrada first on gravel to Monte Finonchio, Rovereto's local mountain. From there there are numerous trail descents that are all somewhat similar. A lot of stones mostly S2, but quite a few S3 places. If you like stones you will be happy here. Then there is another decent ascent to the Passo Bordala, then over to the Naranch Trail (partly S3) and this down to Nago and on to the Lago. Super finale of our Dolomites Transalp.

      The fifth day starts with a nice driveway over the Kaiserjägerweg - a narrow paved road. Once at the top, the detour to the small bike park is definitely worthwhile, as is the case on the track. Lunch at Lago di Lavarone is great, but not too much food because the cross-country part that follows has it all. The more you want, the longer you simply follow the signs for the marathon route. You always come back to our route. When visiting the forts, it is advisable to bring a headlamp, because some passages go very far into the mountain. The final trail to Serrada almost feels like Lake Garda: Rumpy S2 😎😁

      The longest day in this year's Transalp Dolomites. The ascent to the Malga Tognola is quite easy, but if in doubt it can still be replaced by a gondola. The trail down is about S2 with a tendency to be easier. At the very bottom there is another trail with a few harder parts. But this time it was closed for woodwork. The subsequent 5 crosses pass is long and therefore relatively flat. It's better not to shift into first gear, otherwise it will take forever. The trail from the pass starts easily up to an alpine pasture, then there are two options: The trail from the track is in the S3 area, the other is significantly easier, but also shorter. Then it's time to do kilometers. Road down and bike path to Lago di Levico. Tailwind helps!

      From Alleghe to Falcade first downhill and then always uphill along the river in a mix of gravel and back roads. On the Passo Valles we decided to take the pass road. Goes well with traffic and saves energy. On the trail down from the pass it is questionable whether you will take it with you, as there is a lot to push on the traverse. You can also push up from the pass and descend directly into Val Veneggia. But it is a prohibition sign ..
      The Val Veneggia is definitely a panoramic highlight every time, and the subsequent fast flowing trails to San Martino are quite fun. If you still feel like it, you can take a lap in the bike park.

      Day 2 our Dolomites Transalp first led leisurely up the Pordoi pass road. This is followed by a CC trail where you have to descend 3-4 times due to small mudslides. The ascent to Porta Vescovo is tough and you have to be very motivated to walk through it. The subsequent panorama trail to the Rifugio Padon is a real reward for the effort. In the lower part we could unfortunately no longer take all the trails with us, as a good thunderstorm passed over us ...

      Day 1 of our Dolomites Transalp leads us from the beautifully situated Pederü hut (super food) to the Limojoch and on through the large Fanestal. The trail descent has it all. Above S4 (for most to push) and also not easy further down. Pure concentration. The second ascent of the day starts comfortably, but then gets steeper and steeper. As a reward, there is a tremendous view. The descent takes place on the flow trails of the Sella Ronda to Arabba.
