The World Cup course and Höttinger Höll

Follow the world champions

The 2018 World Cycling Championships definitely put the cycling region of Innsbruck on the map. Never has a World Cup course been so tough and the races in the various categories were more exciting than ever. Anna van der Breggen (women) and veteran Alejandro Valverde (men) won the world championships.

The 8 kilometer climb to Igls is beautiful. Tricky with some steep sections, but for a trained cyclist doable. The final climb of the men to the Höttinger Höll has gained cult status in a short time.
