05.08.2022 / On Assumption Day, all bike lovers are off to a special mountain bike race when Kitzbühel's famous local mountain is once again ridden in a sporting showdown.
Next cycling event is in the starting blocks
About two weeks after the International Kitzbühel Horn Cycle Race, the next highlight in the event calendar of the Gamsstadt is in store for all cycling enthusiasts. This year, the organizer Sportverein Kitzsport invites you to the International Hahnenkamm Mountain Bike Race for the 33rd time. The challenge is not to ski down the legendary Hahnenkamm slope, as is usually the case, but to cycle up towards the summit on a mountain bike. Cyclists - from amateurs to professionals - are cordially invited to pedal their way up the world-famous Streif on mountain bikes and compete with other cyclists.
Up on the saddle, into the pedals!
The cycling competition will start on Monday, August 15th, 2022 at 10.00 a.m. in a mass start in downtown Kitzbühel. The start number distribution for this is as usual in the city center at the Sparkasse. The 9-kilometer-long course, which covers 940 meters in altitude, leads through the Jochberger Tor, along the Hahnenkammstraße past the railroad crossing and straight up to the finish line at the Walde mountain station at an altitude of 1668 meters. A gradient of up to 16 percent challenges the participants. The award ceremony will be celebrated directly afterwards at the Walde mountain station.
Enthusiastic mountain bike fans in the start and finish areas as well as spectators on the edge of the course are welcome and invited to experience the traditional bike race spectacle live and cheer on the competitors.
Registration for the mountain bike race is already underway and is possible online at kitzsport.at/hahnenkamm-mtb-rennen/ up to and including Thursday, August 11th, 2022.
