Race Around Austria 1500
- Is perfect for everyone who wants to get a taste of the 2200-kilometer Race
- Is the “short” loop along the original route of the Race that leaves out the west.
- Gives you the feel of the classic Race but with fewer meters of climbing (around 17,500).
- Skips many of the difficult Alpine passes but includes highlights such as the Großglockner!
The Race Around Austria 1500 is different from the classic Race Around Austria in that it is a much shorter race. However, the rules for the two races are mostly the same, including those that deal with safety measures, the pre-race inspection, and the need for a crew and a pace car. Therefore, the 1500 is not only ideal for cyclists who want to prepare for the classic Race, but also a great option for anyone who wants to participate in an ultra-cycling event with longer-than-normal breaks.
