Edition 2023

Fast and dirty, epic and enchanting, unexpected and exciting. This route proves that it is still possible to seek adventure in the mountains. The most extravagant places in Transalp history are on the route: the tank barriers on the Plamort overlooking the Ortler. The Alta Via Camuna, a dream route somewhere between heaven and earth. The Passo Bregn da l'Ors, where you can grasp the mighty walls of the Brenta with your hands. And the Passo Tremalzo, a world star among mountain bike spots.

Even after 25 years there is still so much to discover: 3-Länder Enduro Trails that didn't even exist back then, hidden trails in the Valle del Chiese that are only now being discovered by MTBers. Fat panoramic trails high above Bormio, close to old Transalp routes, but never ridden before.

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.
