The epic Ötztaler
Whether it is as a feverish participant or jubilant fan – the Ötztal Cycle Marathon is an event which enjoys cult status and tradition. The conditions are much like the scenery itself – challenging and beyond comparison. When snow falls on the Timmelsjoch and the sun shines at the bottom of the valley, the Ötztal Cycle Marathon has many guises. The loveliest features are the winners here. It is not just about minutes and seconds. What counts here is where you have been equal to challenge and mastered the route.

Throwback: Ötztal Cycling Marathon 2022
A starting slot at the legendary Ötztal Cycling Marathon is highly coveted. Over 16,000 cyclists registered in February 2022 to participate in one of the most challenging bike races in the Alps. This dream came true for 4,122 participants from almost 30 nations on 28.08.2022. At the 41st edition of the Ötztal Cycle Marathon, a Canadian won for the first time: with a time of 7:10.13 hours, 27-year-old Jack Burke reached the finish line first – to roaring applause from the more than 5,000 spectators. Catherine Rossmann from Germany triumphed in the women’s race.
