Ötztal is a new partner of the German Cycling Team BORA - hansgrohe

Letting off steam: This works well on a road cycling tour in Ötztal as the route climbs steeply uphill on legendary passes such as Kühtai or Timmelsjoch. Letting off steam is also one of the core competencies of the main sponsor of the German Cycling Team BORA - hansgrohe. All the more logical is the new partnership between Ötztal Tourismus and the road racing team from the 2020 season onwards. The cooperation was announced on occasion of the official team presentation.

Perfect training conditions

After the most successful season in its young team history, the cycling team from Germany finished the World Team Ranking in second place and also did very well at the popular cycle races Giro d'Italia, Tour de France and Vuelta. Ambitious goals are on the agenda also for the coming season. Team Manager Ralph Denk explains: "We are already looking forward to the next cycling season and we have great plans, we want to finish on the podium in a Grand Tour and we want to win again a monument in 2018 - and of course we would like to become the future number one in cycling sports. In order to achieve all this, we need the right athletes, the right staff and also the best sponsors.

The 27-men team, comprising also the cycling superstar and 3-time world cycling champion Peter Sagan, will be supported by the Ötztal Region where the pros will find perfect conditions in training camps to prepare for the 2020 season highlights. Ralph Denk: "I am particularly pleased to welcome our new partner Ötztal Tourismus to our cycling family."

Cycling sports focusing on Ötztal

Oliver Schwarz, Managing Director of Ötztal Tourismus, is pleased about the serious cooperation with BORA - hansgrohe: "Thanks to this most congenial team of the WorldTour as our partner, we expect great media appeal in Germany, the most important country of origin of our guests, and even far beyond. Ötztal is a cycling sports heaven offering myriad options for cyclists and bikers. We were a stage finish destination of Deutschland Tour and Tour de Suisse several times. Since 1982 we have organized the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon, an event that has set new standards. With this expertise in both top and mass sports, it was a logical step to aim at a partnership with BORA - hansgrohe.“

A valley for all Cyclists & Bikers

In addition to the jerseys of sprint star Pascal Ackermann, the young Tirolean Patrick Gamper & companions, the BIKE Ötztal logo will also decorate coach cars and trucks. And the BIKE Ötztal logo will also be present at the 40th edition of the Ötztaler Cycle Marathon on 29 August 2021. Oliver Schwarz explains the importance of this legendary cycling event: "The Ötztaler Cycle Marathon has given rise to a high level of cycling enthusiasm with more than 1000 volunteers and helping hands from the region involved with heart and soul. Due to this authentic enthusiasm we developed exciting offers for road cyclists, mountain bikers, enduro riders and families by founding the BIKE REPUBLIC SÖLDEN or building the Ötztal Cycle Trail. The hotels have specialized offers, the mountain lifts as well as the Alpine huts and pastures invest in a unique bike offer. The entire region lives and loves cycling and thanks to BORA - hansgrohe we want to bring into focus even more international attention to our offers."
