I have a dream

42nd Ötztal Cycling Marathon

Ötztal Cycle Marathon
on 9 July 2023 in Sölden

5,500 metres altitude. 227 kilometres. Tackling the Ötztal Cycle Marathon in Sölden means exploding your limits. Long-time legend and lifetime goal among the cycling scene, this event demands it all. Determination. Performance. And passion.

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.
