Oetztal Cycle Marathon 2021 - Sölden/Ötztal (AUT) - Clips
40th anniversary of a legendary bicycle race
Oetztal Cycle Marathon 2021
August 29, 2021, Soelden/Ötztal (AUT)
The race is back in its original and legendary form: The epic Oetztal Cycle Marathon celebrates its 40th anniversary and as usual the passionate road bikers need to master the track of incredible 5500 meters in altitude and 238 kilometers in distance leading from Sölden over 4 Alpine passes (Kühtai saddle, Brenner pass, Jaufen pass and Timmelsjoch) to South Tyrol and back again. The fastest cyclists reach the finish line in a record time of just over seven hours.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic the organizers created an innovative replacement event with the Ötztaler SocialCycle Marathon 2020 and the 40th anniversary needed to be postponed from 2020 to 2021.
