Sprint

SPRINT is a further racing format to the multi-day nonstop ultracycling event TORTOUR ULTRA and CHALLENGE. The distance is about 390 kilometressignificantly shorter and can only be ridden unaccompanied. As a solo rider, it is almost a very long individual time trial through the beautiful pre-alpine landscape and over fascinating Alpine passes and the experience of unforgettable emotions. Since 390 kilometres unaccompanied alone can be quite lonely, SPRINT can also be ridden in a team of 2 or 3. Unlike the other racing formats, SPRINT’s teams always work together.

Thanks to easier preparation and less effort – also logistically – SPRINT makes it possible to get into ultracycling sport with a great competition or, because of its simplicity, also offers itself for foreign participants.

All riders complete the entire route – the teams together. All participants must therefore drive the entire kilometre.
