Tracking online

Das Tracking ist bereit und morgen Freitag um 04:00 wird David aus dem Tessin als erster auf die Strecke gehen. Der Event entstand aus dem Covid19 Bedürnis, dass Massenveranstaltungen diesen Sommer ursprünglich nicht erlaubt sein sollten. Es startet nun auch jeder Fahrer am für ihn nächst gelegen Ort der Strecke und zu einer individuellen Zeit.

Das Tracking wird bis Ende Oktober verfügbar sein, für alle die nun Lust darauf bekommen.

————————————————–

The tracking is ready and tomorrow morning 4am David from Ticiono will be the first rider starting at Biasca. This event was created in a very short time in the need, that group events originally may not be allowed this summer.
Now every rider start at a different location, nearest to the place he is living and at an individual time.

The tracking will be available till end of October and registration will be available trough all the summer.

Final route available

The route file will be ready coming Monday.

Little changes in the Jura and a different route as originally planed around Davos. Klosters-Davos was to stressfull to ride by bike and no alternative road is available for this 7km section. The route will now follow the river Rhein till Chur and go up to Davos over Lenzerheide on a backroad.

—————————

Die definitive Route wird am Montag verfügbar sein.

Kleine Änderungen im Jura und um Davos. Klosters-Davos war stressig zu fahren, mit der gegebenen Strassenbreite und nur wenig Verkehr. Die Route wird nun bis Chur dem Rhein folgen und von dort auf einer Nebenstrasse über die Lenzerheide nach Davos führen.
