Pure asphalt tour to the roof of the Ötztaler Radmararathon at 2474 m.
With 2474 meters, the Timmelsjoch ranks among the highest passes of the Alps. The climbing tour to the pass passes throughout asphalt and is therefore also suitable for racing bicycles.But whoever uses the translation advantages of mountain biking is certainly more relaxed. The Timmelsjoch is the highest point of the annual Ötztaler Radmarathons taking place over a total of four passes. Via the Passo del Rombo, the Italian name of the Timmelsjoch, the border runs to South Tyrol. The southern ramp ends in Merano. The mountain bike rides on the average roughly 5 percent steep north ramp up into the barren Hochgebirgswelt of the Ötztaler Alps.Shortly after the junction to Hochgurgl you pass the toll station, behind which it goes again downhill 100 meters. A veritable hurdle on the way back! The toll must of course only be paid by drivers. After the intermediate descent, the most difficult part of the ascent follows: the street straight up the Timmel Valley. Salvation brings the serpentines just before the pass. Catering: Upstairs is a rest house.
