Difficulty: Moderate terrain with rolling short steep hills or moderate, sustained climbs

The Eddy Merckx Classic is a bike event for everyone. We want to emphasize the sportif thought and minimize the stress and competion thought.

This is  the reason why the short Race (63km) will be a bike touristik tour.  We won't have  a timekeeping for this distance and no award ceremony. 

Also NEW is that you can drive with any bike type, but it has to be suitable for the street StVO 1960 (traffic regulation rules). All other services are the same like the last years. The only thing which changes is that you have enough time to enjoy the landscape.

In the slipstream of a cycling legend!

The proven track leeds through the Salzkammergut and the SalzburgerLand. You pass up to 11 beautiful lakes in the Salzburger Land and the Salzkammergut and will cycle through a fantastic scenery.

After the successfull last year, all Handbikers are very welcome again to the Eddy Merckx Classic 2018! New in the starting grid are the kickbikers, who will compete at the same track.

All handbikers are very welcome to be part of the Eddy Merckx Classic marathon 2017! Let's support the Charity-Organisation Wings for Life!

To bring a new variety to the starting grid this year it's the first time kickbikers are also competing at the Eddy Merckx Classic. Kickbikes are truly racing machines: 28 inch wheels and light tires combined with tremendous brakes are the perfect combination for competetive sport.

The Start- & Finish area in the idyllic town Fuschl am See is well connectedfor public transportation.
