Dietsch was from the very beginning among the top bikers before he was able to break away after 70 km. Ondrej Fojtik from Team "Toyota Kellys” was holding for a long time the fifth position - but during the second part of the race he increased his speed leaving some bikers behind. Stefan Danowski (Trenga De Team) was second for a long time - however at the very last climb the strong Czech biker pulled head.

Steenfatt (GER) and Anita Waiß (AUT)


The Swiss Andrea Huser leading from the start wins for the second time the long distance in Bad Goisern. The German Doris Steenfatt from Conway Factory Team comes in second. Only seven minutes behind last year's winner Anita Waiß from ARBÖ Merida Polizei Wien in third position.

In a thrilling final sprint Simoni wins at the end with a time of 4:29:59 only 20 hundredth of a second ahead of Paez! "Not quite as difficult as the Giro, but just as beautiful" an enthused Simoni who reaffirms this will not be his last biking season.

New! Kellys Dachstein loop


The Dachstein is the "boundary-post" of three states which means the course leads you through Styria, Salzburg and Upper Austria. The signposted course around this mountain landmark of the Salzkammergut is for sure one of the most spectacular tour of the Eastern Alps. The course leads from the town center of St. Agatha to Bad Aussee, along the Salza storage lake towards the Viehberg Alp, via Gröbming through the Enns valley to Ramsau, it continues to Filzmoos und Annaberg and via Gosau back to Bad Goisern. Ideal for sporty bikers in a three days leg.

Besides the 182 kilometer "Original Course", there is now also a new 270 kilometer long extreme version sign posted in both directions. The "Kellys Dachstein loop" is technically more challenging and leads every now and then to the original course. So this is ideal for biker groups of different levels.


The Tourism Service Salzkammergut offers a package deal including three nights, luggage transfer, a detailed description of the tours and Salzkammergut MTB Ticket starting at Euro 169,-
