Check out the Rules
The given route of the first edition of MittelgebirgeClassique will lead the participants over around 40 mountain passes in the Palatinate Forest, Black Forest and in the Vosges.
The route is completely paved and can therefore be easily tackled by road bike. The highest passes in the Palatinate reach around 600m, in the Black Forest and the Vosges the passes rise to over 1400m.
The supply of food and accommodation, is considerable. However, there are sections where the tourist infrastructure is scarce.

There will be a Checkpoint at about half the route. We've found a Hut at a beautiful spot in the south part of the Black-Forest.
Riders will have the possibility to have a warm meal and a nice cup of coffee, for those who'll get there in the evening or by night there will be also the option for either a place to rest or a bed. The Checkpoint will be managed by our dear friend Sören who is an experienced Ultra-Cyclist.
