The virus is now rampant all over the world, and does not even stop in front of our beloved sport.
On Monday 18.5.20 a meeting of the South Tyrol.Berg.Cup organizing committee took place, in which the rest of the season and the upcoming races were decided: if the races that had been cancelled so far can be made up for, and on which dates.
Due to the decision of the Italian Cycling Federation FCI of April 14th (ban of all cycling races, in all disciplines and categories, until at least June 30th 2020) as well as the currently valid restrictions for events, the following races will be removed from the race calendar of the "Südtirol.Berg.Cup 2020" without replacement:
MendelRace / Edelrot-Trophy on the Gampenpass-Passo Palade / Trophy Raiffeisenkasse Prad-Taufers on the Stelvio / M2 BIKE Trophy on the JaufenpPass-Passo Giovo
Of course we will inform you about it here, and on ourfacebook page on https://www.facebook.com/suedtirol.berg.cup/
The series of the Südtirol.Berg.Cup will be extended to 7 races from 2020!
From now on, the Jaufenpass/Passo Giovo - always one of the 4 alpine passes
to be ridden at the Ötztaler Cycling Marathon - will be part of the series.
On a length of about 15 km with start in Gasteig near Sterzing/Vipiteno, the route runs in a steady gradient
up to the finish on the Jaufenpass at 2,090m altitude. Almost 1,100 metres of altitude difference are overcome.
And as a new conclusion to the series, there will be an uphill from Blumau/Prato Isarco to Steinegg/Collepietra:
with a length of just over 10 kilometers not an extremely long, but in some sections partly steep uphill
with a total of 900 metres in altitude ... a crowning achievement of the series!
