«Europe’s most beautiful cycling marathon“- the next edition of the Alpen Challenge takes place on the 6th of August 2017. The two magnificent routes of the Alpen Challenge are part of the Swiss Cycling Top Tour, a series of the top ranked and biggest cycling marathons in Switzerland.
The departure as well as the finish of the event is located in Lantsch/Lenz, right in the heart of the tourist and cycling area Lenzerheide. Two routes will be available, a 110 km and a 186 km version leading the participants through some of the most astonishing regions of Switzerland. Depending on the riders’ choice, participants will face the Albula and the Julier Pass or the Albula, the Maloja and the Splügen Pass. The longer version thus includes the combination of two of the most challenging mountain roads in a single race. Further highlights include the ride along the Oberengadiner lakes, the descent down from the Maloja Pass, a most intriguing combination of curves down from the Splügen and – eventually – the Viamala canyon.
