Gravel Marathon by Salzkammergut-MTB-Trophy
July 13, 2019 All day
On Saturday July 13, 2019 the Salzkammergut-Mountainbike-Trophy hosts a special contest for gravels und cyclocross bikes:
Gravel-Marathon powered by Dachstein-Salzkammergut!
The Gravel-Marathon is almost identical with the Trophy C-Course. Merely the start–loop in Obertraun as well as the extreme climb to Hallstätter-Salzberg have been dropped. Still, this 63-km course is a real physical fitness challenge due to leg-burning 2.076 meters elevation gain.
Two thirds of the track is on gravel, dirt and forest roads, one third is paved – being also a perfect blend for cross and gravel bikes.
The gravelbikers have their special starting block at 10:13 am – about two minutes prior the MTB-Bikers of the C-course. The course leads via Obertraun directly into the Hallstätter-Echerntal valley climbing up to the Rossalm.
The finish – as with all Trophy competitions – is at the market square in Bad Goisern.
There will be a women as well as a men rating, however no age classification.
The timing of the Cyclocross-Biker is also part of the Slow-Motion-Rating.
Arrive by train – perfect way to travel!
The best way to reach Obertraun for cyclocross-start is by train. The train station “Obertraun-Dachsteinhöhlen“ is just a couple of “bike minutes” away from the starting area.
