Registration to open online on December 11, 2012
Munich, November 8, 2012 – in 2013, the Craft BIKE Transalp will take place for the 16th time already. Over the course of eight days, from July 13 thru 20, 600 mountain bike teams of two, consisting of pros as well as amateurs, will tackle the challenge of crossing the Alps.
The registration for the world’s toughest mountain bike stage race will open Tuesday, December 11, 2012, at 12 PM (6 AM Eastern in the U.S.) online.
All available entry spots will be allocated on www.bike-transalp.de and true to the motto “first come, first served”. With good reason! Experience has shown that – due to the mad run on the tickets – almost all spots got taken in quite a short time window.
