Biking At Its Best The 'cradle of alpine skiing' is also an attraction in summer. Cycling fans in particular swarm to St. Anton am Arlberg from near and far. Because surrounded by the magnificent mountain scenery and unspoilt nature of St. Anton am Arlberg lie picture perfect areas for mountain bikers and the ideal point of departure for several racing bike tours.

We took into consideration this recommendation and postponed the ARLBERG Giro on Sunday, 07.31.2016 - Start is at 07.00 am. The Professional Criterion will be held on Saturday
