The TOUR Transalp is the most famous and spectacular amateur stage race across Europe. A stage race for teams of two, with its unique structure and organisation, leads seven-day stages across the Alps and the Dolomites. The TOUR Transalp is the original of this format of alpine crossing and goes into its 18th round this year. Years of experience have produced improved quality as well as the sophisticated organisation and event structure.
The TOUR Transalp, Europe’s most popular road cycling stage race for amateurs, is entering the 18th round from June, 18th – 24th, 2023. The new route is full of contrasts, surprising changes in scenery and impressive mountain landscapes. In 2023, the route will take seven stages from Lienz in Austria to Arco in Italy. A total of 827.30 km and 18,233 metres of altitude are on the program – a challenge for the legs and an absolute treat for the eyes because, at the 18th edition, there will undoubtedly be no shortage of panoramas and prominent peaks.
The TOUR Transalp 2023 is full of differences, and surprising scenery changes on a route through mountain landscapes that leave completely different images in the memory. The route scrapes past the glaciers of the Hohe Tauern and penetrates deep into the heart of the Dolomites, lined by their rugged peaks, which for many form the most beautiful mountains in the world. But it also takes you to the Prosecco vines in Veneto, to the vineyards around Lake Kaltern, through the apple orchards in Val di Non and across the alpine pastures on the plateau of Asiago and Lavarone.
On the same day, first, the cool mountain air and then the warm south wind blow around your ears. And the next day it’s the other way around again. You have to be prepared for things to turn out differently at the end of the day than you imagined at the beginning. But that is exactly the attraction of the Transalp adventure – the ride into the unknown. Stage locations in 2023 are also Fiera di Primiero, Pederobba, Folgaria, Kaltern / Caldaro and Comano Terme.
