In 2022 Kaltern is set to be a stage destination of the BIKE Transalp!
From 3rd to 9th of July, 2022, up to 600 tandem teams will prove their endurance and staying power by handling one of the most ambitious mountain bike crossings of the Alps.
The BIKE Transalp is probably one of the toughest mountain bike stage races in Europe. This year the tandem teams will start in Lienz in Austria. Successively, the track will lead through Sillian in Austria until finally reaching South Tyrol. Kaltern is one of the locations in South Tyrol, next to Brunico and S. Vigilio, which will be hosting the important race. The last stages of the BIKE Transalp lead the bikers from Kaltern via San Martino di Castrozza and Lavarone, until getting to Riva del Garda, which is the traditional final destination.
Kaltern, 4th stage destination:
In early morning of Wednesday, 6th of July, 2022, the participants will start in S. Vigilio and will go towards Passo Erbe, across the valley Val di Funes, down to Bolzano. From there the itinerary continues towards Appiano and, at the end, to the sport facilities in St. Anton/Kaltern.
