Hello !

In Europe there are bicycle marathon series and Ötz valley bicyclemarathon (228 km + 5300 m) is (one of ) the most prestigious bicyclemarathon among them. It is the peak of the season for several cyclists. The start is in Austria (Sölden) but the route visits Italy too. The cyclists have to climb 4 climbs: Kühtai (2020 m) - 17,5 km with 7,5% (Max 18%), Brennerpass (1374 m), Passo MOnte Giovo (2094 m) (15 km + 1124 m - avg steepness: 7,5%) and the last is the hardest: Passo Rombo (2509 m) (29 km + 1796 m; with 6,2% but few kms with 10-12%.).
Its slogan is "I have a dream" - and it was my dream for years: cycle it riding my touringbike and record it for video.
The video (from start to the finish) shows its feeling very well

Have a good time and enjoy it !
