Gravel / Cyclocross Marathon – Bad Goisern, Austria

July 13, 2019 @ 07:00 – 17:00
Bad Goisern

From the Promoter:

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 gained.

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 gravel cyclists have their special starting block at 10:13 am – about two minutes prior to 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 woman 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.
