ABOUT

Three Peaks Bike Race is an unsupported bike packing race over three major mountain passes!

The race Starts in Vienna at Schönbrunn Palace on July 20th 2019.

Finish line 2019 is in Barcelona – Spain!

The ultra cyclist veterans Vincent Mühlethaler and Michael Wacker designed a new race format for your racecalender. From their experience in The Transcontinental Race and the Trans Am Bike Race they developed the concept of a short bike packing race as an addition to the bigger races!

This race is designed for riders who wanna start into self supported bike racing or for experienced racers who wanna test themselfs in race conditions before their main event in the season kicks off.

Distance of the Race in 2019 is around 2000km which makes it possible to finish it in around a week.

Also important was the concept of a compact route layout and locations which are easy to go to and easy to leave from.

The route concept is that you have to plan your own one along the 3Peaks, but we are aware of the fact that newcomers maybe need advise in routeplanning. If so, please get in touch!

RULES

1. Riders must complete the full course from start to finish on a self planed route with in between 3 mountain Peaks.

2. Riders must be fully self-supported.

3. No Drafting at any time.

4. Riders must follow the local laws at any time.

5. All bikes have to pass a check up before the start.

6. Riders are required to use a provided GPS Tracker if they want to be ranked in the general classification.

7. No prize money.

ROUTE

Three Peaks Bike Race leads you across the most beautiful landscape in Europe.
At the same time its maybe the most challenging terrain too.

Ride directly to the next Peak of the Race over another big mountain or take the longer flat way around.
It`s all up to you!

Start is in Vienna – Schönbrunn Palace.

You have to ride on a self planned cyclingroute along three high Mountain Peaks all the way to the finish in Barcelona.

Start - Vienna

Schönbrunn Palace will be the start point of the event. It is one of the most important architectural, cultural, and historical monuments in the country.

PEAK 1 - Stelvio

The Stelvio Pass is a mountain pass in northern Italy, at an elevation of 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps. The pass is located in the Ortler Alps in Italy between Stelvio in South Tyrol and Bormio in the province of Sondrio. It is about 75 km (47 mi) from Bolzano and a mere 200 m from the Swiss border. The Umbrail Pass runs northwards from the Stelvio’s western ramp, and the “Three Languages Peak” above the pass is so named because this is where the Italian, German, and Romansh languages meet.

PEAK 2 - COLLE DELLE FINESTRE

Colle delle Finestre (el. 2178 m.) is a mountain pass in the Cottian Alps, in the Italian region of Piemonte, Italy, linking the Susa Valley and Val Chisone. The road was built around 1700 to gain access to the fortresses in the area, mainly the Forte di Fenestrelle. The road is very popular for both cyclists and motorbikes with magnificent views of the surrounding mountain ranges. It serves as a tourist attraction. Eight kilometers of road leading to the summit from the Susa end have not been asphalted. From Susa the mountain pass is 18.6 kilometres long at an average of 9.1% (height gain: 1694 m), the maximum gradient being 14%.

PEAK 3 - ARCALIS ORDINO

Arcalis is probably Andorra’s best known cycling climb, having featured numerous timse in the Tour de France, Vuelta a España and Volta a Catalunya. Jan Ullrich holds the record on Arcalis, while Bradley Wiggins has also named it as one of his favourite high mountain climbs. This gives an idea of the kind of climb that it is, suiting riders who can grind out a consistently high tempo, rather than those who prefer changes in pace and steep gradients.

FINISH Parcour
MONTSERRAT -TIBIDABO - Barcelona

Your adventure ends in Barcelona at the Arc de Triomf.
Its a good spot to relax or even keep on travelling if you want this. And of course you can also find Gelato everywhere.

If you just want to go home its infrastructure and location will allow that really fast.

Dan Dimitriu

Biography:

Originally from Romania, I discovered my passion for cycling only after I moved to Brussels, where I've graduated from a Master in Civil Engineering.

My first 'real' road bike was bought from a city 100 km away from Brussels. Without any preparation or previous longer than 10 km rides, I decided to ride it back 100 km to Brussels,in a rainy and cold day, so I could 'test' it.

That was my first long ride experience, which opened the door to many others: mythical Tour de Flanders on cobbles, the classical Liege-Bastogne-Liege, a fully supported trip from Liege to Bucharest and the last trip from Brussels-London in under 24h.

I am looking forward for what 2019 is bringing!
