M³ Montafon Mountainbike Marathon

30 July - 1 August 2020

Overview of the competitions

From pleasant e-mountain bike routes, to active 29 km, sporty 45 km, challenging 65 km through to extreme 130 km.

Five routes pass through the exciting mountain landscape of the Montafon. Starting at the “extreme M³” at 130 kilometres and spectacular 4,500 vertical metres to the “challenging M²” at 65 kilometres and 2,400 vertical metres and the “sporty M1” at 1,250 vertical metres distributed across 40 kilometres, through to “Mfit” at 29 kilometres and 500 vertical metres, the organisers are offering both an extensive and exciting programme. The terrain ranges from flat single trails to high Alpine sections with a lot of gravel. New since last year: The e-pleasure tour, which awaits with many culinary highlights.

Montafon electric bike pleasure tour

The Montafon electric bike pleasure tour promises a feast for both the eyes and the palate in the imposing Montafon mountain range.

With the aid of an electric motor, however, in the absence of timekeeping, you can familiarise yourself with the diverse landscape of the Montafon on forest trails and panoramic roads. From Schruns you can cycle to the idyllic Silbertal, to the upper Wasserstubenalpe and then to the leisure mountain of Kristberg. From there it continues to Bartholomäberg and then back to the destination in Schruns.

Culinary intermediate and rest stops: (incl. water and juice on the table)

  • Hotel Hirschen - Strawberry curd cheese smoothie
  • Felimännle - Wild ragout from our own hunt with Spätzle, for vegetarians: vegetables variation
  • Untere Wasserstuben Alpe - Cheese specialities
  • Panoramagasthof Kristberg - Kaiserschmarren with applesauce

The e-bike pleasure tour starts on thursday and friday at 1.30 pm in Schruns.

On this route, it is not the fastest racer who is deemed the winner, but he/she who deviates the least from the average time over all times achieved. Whether the deviation is positive or negative is not taken into account. If only a few racers take part in a scoring category, we reserve the right to combine classes in the Mfit competition.
