Individual or as a team

BIKE Transalp is a stage race in which you can participate both individually and as a team (2 people). Separate rankings are drawn up for both. The minimum age is 18 years.

Edition 2022: different than normal

The 24th BIKE Transalp is totally different from all editions before it. For the first time the Transalp starts in East Tyrol. The brand new stage town Bruneck offers the possibility to include the Kronplatz into the route. A place that is popular with MTB events but has never been in the Transalp before. The 2022 route is unprecedented in the history of the Transalp. Many parts are new and unpredictable. No stage is like the others, they don't even look alike! Is it a Transalp on beautiful panoramic trails for kilometre-eaters and climbers? Yes, but not always! Is it a Transalp for trail fans who would rather have a rollercoaster ticket than a race number? Yes, but not always! There's everything in the 2022 Transalp: distance, altitude, adrenaline. But it's all very irregularly distributed. That makes it as exciting as a BIKE Transalp has to be.

Professional organisation

During the BIKE Transalp you can count on the best organization you can think of. Professional timekeeping, luggage service, supplies on the course and at the finish, chill-out zone, technical bike service, bike wash, a finisher's shirt, a medal and much more. 150 organizers and helpers make participants feel like pros for seven days.
