Ischgl Ironbike UCI Stage Race
Those who want to take the overall victory and collect valuable UCI-points for the world rankings, must complete all four races of the Ischgl Ironbike UCI Stage Race from 5 to 8 August 2020. First up is the Alpenhaus Trophy (5/8) up to the Idalp, next up is a short and snappy individual time trial (6/8) and the spectacular Short Track (7/8). On Sunday, the legendary Ischgl Ironbike Marathon Hard (8/8) is on the programme. Every second counts towards the Stage-Race-overall result, because at the end all the times will be added up.
