JULY 3rd 2023
IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE UCI-WCS 2018
“This stage is all about the great UCI World Championships in 2018. From St. Anton, the cradle of alpine skiing, we head to Innsbruck at highspeed. Some breakaways will be gone in front. In the ascent to Axams, which will be done several times, then probably a first small selection is made with a group in front. Either a small group will fight for victory at the finish or we will see a bunch sprint in front of Innsbruck Congress at the Rennweg, where all races of the WCS 2018 ended”.

St. Anton am Arlberg
The cradle of alpine skiing. With the world’s fifth largest ski area. Ski World Championships 2001 and with the Arlberg Giro and the World Press Championships end of July also very road bike affine.
TVB Managing Director Martin Ebster: “St. Anton am Arlberg has written history for decades as the cradle of alpine skiing in the field of winter sports. However, with the conception and implementation of the Arlberg Giro, road cycling has gained immense importance for the region. Thanks to the many years of cooperation with the Vorarlberg cycling team and the Tirol Cycling Team, events in this area have been brought closer to us with a lot of know-how and great enthusiasm and have therefore become dear to our hearts. For this reason we are proud and honored to be a partner at the start of the newly developed “Tour of Austria”
Alpine and urban. In the heart of Europe. University town with over 30,000 students. High cultural and leisure potential. UCI Cycling World Championships 2018 and Crankworx.
“The fact that the Innsbruck region can come up with spectacular cycling events is no longer a secret since the UCI Cycling World Championships 2018. At the comeback of the Tour of Austriar, every meter will be fought for at the finish line in Innsbruck. On the afternoon of July 3rd there will again be the opportunity to experience top-class sport up close in the Tyrolean capital“, Peter Paul Mölk, chairman of Innsbruck Tourismus, is looking forward to the restart of the Tour of Austria.
