Racing Cycling Zell am See-Kaprun

Racing cycle tours and racing cycle training routes in the Zell am See-Kaprun region

Turn 18 - how many were there again? What does the altimeter say? How far is it now? The Großglockner high-alpine road winds its way seemingly endless in direction Fuscher Törl. Catch your breath, shift down to riding out the saddle, pedal steadily. After an unbelievable 26 turns and more than 1.700 sweat-inducing altitude metres, we reach the Fuscher Törl and get off our racing cycles with heavy legs. Our reward for the long and steep ascent is the beautiful view. We now really deserve at stop at the Berggasthof Edelweißspitze but we need to get back on our bicycles to get there ...


Of Glockner Kings and Ironman

The racing cycle tour to the Großglockner is not only a stunning, impressive tour in the Zell am See-Kaprun region, it is also the most famous. Any halfway ambitious racing cyclist from here and abroad must have cycled the Großglockner at least once in their cyclist life. And this even though this tour is anything but easy. A more leisurely pace is taken on the beautiful tours in the valley. An extensive network of low-traffic side roads, on which you can race your slim wheels across the asphalt, is waiting around Kaprun, Zell am See, Bruck, to Mittersill and further into the Oberpinzgau or, in the other direction, to Saalfelden. The roads around Kitzbühel and in the Pillerseetal Valley are busier but they are still great racing cycle routes. If you are really up for it, then take the original IRONMAN 70.3 World Cup route and compete against the best of the scene. At least you don't need to run a marathon afterwards.


Become a King ...

... a "Glockner King". The start signal for this famous racing cycle event along the Großglockner high alpine road is given in May every year. Several thousand cyclists from around the world gather to take the many altitude metres and kilometres on two slim wheels. If you don't want to share this legendary route with others, then go on any other day during the summer. If you also want to avoid the traffic and tourist tours, then start early in the morning. The Großglockner high-alpine road is very popular with car drivers, motor cyclists and caravans during the peak season.

Hochkönig, Rauriserhöhe, Kitzbühel Horn & Co.

Just some of the famous names you can "visit" on your racing cycle tours in the Zell am See-Kaprun region. The Kitzbühel Tour is ideal for a detour to the Kitzbühel Horn. But for this, your legs should be trained well. The Dientner Tour leads you into the amazing world of the Steinberge Mountains around the Hochkönig and the Steinerne Meer. Starting in Zell am See, you cycle to Saalfelden and via Maria Alm to the Filzensattel. With view to the Hochkönig you reach the Filzensattel and enjoy a relaxed and beautiful descent to Lend. If you and your legs are still motivated you can take the route back to the region Zell am See-Kaprun via Embach and the Rauriserhöhe . Otherwise you follow the road to Taxenbach and Bruck. As it is quite often the case: The choice is yours!

Men and women of steel

1.9 km of swimming, 90 km of cycling, 21.1 km of running - quite impressive figures to think about. The Zell am See-Kaprun region has become a stable in the event calendar of the IRONMAN 70.3 series. And this for good reason - the cycling route is one of the most beautiful in the Alps. The route is similar to the Dientner Tour. If you are not taking part in the Ironman event, then you surely have more time to enjoy the great views and the beauty of the landscape. The tour is a dream of alpine beauty and scenery, leading you and your racing cycle deep into the most beautiful alpine regions of the Salzburger Land.

"The Pinzgau District is my home. I grew up here and the training conditions here are unique. I love racing cycling around Zell am See-Kaprun. Anyone who has enjoyed the view to the limestone faces of the Hochkönig on the Dienten Tour wishes they could stay. Or the feeling when arriving at the Fuscher Törl after a long ascent - this feeling gets you on your racing cycle again!"
