This time, the race is staged in Slovenia, not in Tyrol. The 300 km-long tour, where approx. 10.000 altitude metres must be accomplished, is complemented by short detours to Italy and Austria. The participants are out and about with start numbers and enjoy typical race atmosphere at the start and finish – but there is no time pressure at all. The 6 stages are accomplished together with one of the guides, in groups or individually. Perfect signposting and GPS data of the individual stages describe the route to the next destination.
Surrounded by the Carnic and Julian Alps, we will experience a unique mountain bike adventure. The landscape is isolated, diverse and wild – the tracks are not structured or especially designed for bike sport. You have to create the trails in Slovenia’s mountains and forests yourself. Roots, large stones, one or the other toppled tree – these obstacles must be mastered. Pristine nature is the reward for all the effort. Sometimes you feel like the first mountain biker – tracks as you know them from classic areas in Tyrol are hard to find here.
The TransTirol BikeRallye 2018 is a discovery tour through the mountain world of the Triglav National Park and the beautiful Soča Valley. Unforgettable mountain bike moments are guaranteed.
