That was the Südtirol.Berg.Cup 2022 - 5 races
The race series Südtirol.Berg.Cup entered its already 7th season in 2022.
With the various ascent races, which are all located in the Alpine region of South Tyrol, some of the most famous and beautiful passes are climbed, such as the Mendelpass near Bozen/Bolzano, the Gampen Pass in Meran/Merano, the legendary Stelvio, and the Penser Joch/Passo Pennes.
The series underwent a small change in 2022:
this year, unfortunately, the individual time trial on the Reiterjoch, which has always been considered the finale for the series, was not included. Also the uphill "Zanolini Trophy" from Blumau up to the sports field in Steinegg, which was planned for the first time, definitely did not take place.
New in the series, however, was the ascent from Sterzing to the Jaufenpass, since always also part of the Ötztaler Radmarathon!
It was an exciting racing season right up to the end ... Race on!
Everyone starts small - just like us. From a common vision - to climb the most beautiful alpine passes in South Tyrol by road bike - we have created together step by step a unique race series.
It all started in 2013.
The idea was to ride the most beautiful passes of South Tyrol by road bike... in a race... for amateurs. And this in a series spread over the season.
Some races already existed: the race from Lana to the Gampen Pass (1.518m), the Grand Prix to the Penser Joch (2.211m), or the Stelvio race (2.758m). The goal was to unite all these races and create a series of them, with the most beautiful and famous pass roads in the Alpine region of South Tyrol... and it has remained so until today.
