Tour of the Alps

Professional cycle race

The professional stage race born in the name of the Euregio, uniting three incredible territories – Tyrol, Südtirol and Trentino – in a unique project, returns from April 16 to 20, 2018 coming off the success of the inaugural edition (its visibility revenue was estimated in over 10 Million Euro), the encouraging feedbacks and the emotional wake it left behind.

A virtuous example of territorial marketing, the Tour of the Alps has managed to represent in an exciting way the beauties of Tyrol, Südtirol and Trentino, as well as the common spirit that unifies them inside the Euregio. The three regions identify themselves in shared values (not only in sports) that are key to solidify a touristic system strongly characterized by the two wheels.
 
Five racing days, 714,3 km overall distance, 13.100 mt overall altitude, 10 categorized climbs: the Tour of the Alps features all the elements of a modern race, that after the 2017 success confirms a spectacular formula made of short and intense routes

The start of the 2018 Tour of the Alps returns to the origins of the Giro del Trentino, in the beautiful city of Arco, near to the North Lake Garda banks. In Arco, seat of the organizing company of the Tour of the Alps, the race will live an intense eve with the teams’ official presentation, and then the start of the 1st stage, that will take the peloton to the Folgaria plateau through scenic places, before tackling the final climb to the Alpe Cimbra venue, with a spectacular finish suited to punchy climbers.
