The latest information on the “Gebrüder Weiss Relay Category” at the KRM 

The Kitzbüheler Radmarathon is getting closer and closer. With this relay update all athletes and support staff will get the latest information on transition zones, procedures, cut-off times and much more.

Handover in transition zones

Between each relay section there are so-called transition zones. These zones are located:

In order to make a correct handover, both competitors of the respective relay sections must be in this area at the same time.

Mini-Depot-Service: Relay participants have the possibility to deposit small items for their teammates at the official staff in the transition zones (keys, cards, etc.)


The time will not be taken in the transition areas. The times of the relay participants will be measured individually in each section and then added together. A relay team has only finished the Kitzbüheler Radmarathon if all 3 participants complete their respective section. If this is the case, the team will also receive the finisher shirt.

 What happens in case of dropouts?

Should the preceding relay partner not be able to finish his relay section and inform his following relay partner of this, the following relay partner can start his section.

If the preceding relay partner does not finish his relay section within the given time limit, the relay colleague will be sent off by an authorised staff member on site. This procedure ensures that the following rider can complete his section on the course under safety.

Time limits

  • Section 1 – 9:00 a.m.
  • Section 2 – 12:00 a.m.
  • Section 3/General limit for the ascent to the Kitzbüheler Horn/Bundestrasse junction – 4:30 p.m.




Since you are not going to do the race on your own, it is important to have a good strategy. There are 2 options.

Without support with 2 cars

The first participant starts in Kitzbühel. Before the start of the Kitzbüheler Radmarathon starter 2 starts in Kitzbühel with the car to the first hand over in Wald im Pinzgau. Starter 1 finishes and drives back to Kitzbühel with this car. Starter 3 drives with the car from Kitzbühel to the 2nd hand over in Brixlegg. After the hand over, driver 2 drives back to Kitzbühel by car. Afterwards the team goes together by car to the Kitzbüheler Horn and with the cable car to the award ceremony.

With Support Team

A big car and a support/driver are needed. The first participant starts in Kitzbühel. Before the start of the Kitzbüheler Radmarathon the support starts with the other riders in Kitzbühel to the first hand over in Wald im Pinzgau. After the hand over the support heads to the 2nd hand over in Brixlegg. After the 2nd change the finished riders and support drive back to Kitzbühel.


Parking areas are available at both transition areas so that carers can park or the starters themselves can leave their vehicles there.


Are available for use.

Please note: For relay participants 1 & 2 there are shower facilities at the Sportpark in Kitzbühel. We would like to ask all relay participants not to continue after their completed part of the race, but to take advantage of this offer in order to then ride to the award ceremony fresh and refreshed.

Thanks to our partner KitzSki, you can take the cable car up to the award ceremony on the Kitzbüheler Horn. Every relay participant gets a free ticket. After the finish, all participants (relay and individual) can/should take the gondola down to the valley safely and relaxed.

The relay teams will receive the exact GPS tracks and schedules as well as detailed plans for the transition zones before the start of the race.

Congratulations to the organisers for planning and implementing such an event under still challenging conditions,” says Frank Haas, Head of Corporate Brand Strategy & Communications, explaining the company’s commitment.
