KRONE Ride to Höll


One day before the Men Elite 2018 UCI World Champion is crowned in Innsbruck-Tirol, non-professional cyclists will have the chance to ride the same roads as the stars.


The KRONE Ride to Höll on 29 September will see 2,018 amateurs take on a short but sharp course starting in the heart of Innsbruck and climbing the infamous Höttinger Höll climb to finish above the city.


Registration is now closed. Late registration is possible from 26-28.09.2018 at Messe Innsbruck.

Featuring 291 metres of climbing and a maximum gradient of 28%, the 3.2km course for the KRONE Ride to Höll begins in front of the Hofburg imperial palace (the official finish area of the 2018 UCI Road World Championships). The course continues via Rennweg and Herzog-Otto-Straße to the Innbrücke bridge over the River Inn. Riders then proceed up the narrow Höttingergasse – along the same route as the pros – and the winding Schneeburggasse all the way to the finish line at Gramartboden.

The fastest male and female rider will be crowned King and Queen of Höll, with prizes awarded to the top three in the men’s and women’s categories. The timed section that will determine the final results starts at the Höttingergasse and ends at the finish at Gramartboden.
