Weltcup Runde K1
One starts at the Kaprun town hall and then one follows the signs along the farm and forest road to the Glocknerblick (view to the Grossglockner) mountain guest house. As the name suggests, one has a magnificent view of Austria´s highest mountain from here.
The technically good riders then follow the over the Astenweg path and Bachler trail to the Schneckenreith guest house. Riders are fully technically challenged on this trail and after passing through the forest one can pause now and then to enjoy the beautiful view over the Klamm lake. Riders wishing to take a more gentle run,which is not as difficult technically, take the farm road from Helis hut down over the Maiskogel to Kaprun. Both routes come together and the beginning of the cross-country circuit. A couple of short, very steep climbs follow, on the legendary Kaprun cross-country circuit, before reaching the Kaprun castle where one turns off to finish the tour gently along the banks of the Salzach river.
