We regret to announce that the 6th edition of the Ortler Bike Marathon from 6th June 2020 cannot take place and will be rescheduled to 5th June 2021.
There is no end in sight to the measures to protect the population and more and more countries are feeling the effects of the worldwide spread of COVID-19.
All signs also indicate that sports events with numerous participants are not allowed to take place until well into the summer.
We too have to make our contribution against the spread of the virus. This has to take precedence over our unconditional will to create a great moment for the Ortler Bike Marathon community.
This is a difficult moment for us and for all those who prepare and look forward to this moment all year long.
However, we know that the health and well-being of participants, organizers and visitors and their relatives and friends have priority, and that is the most important thing.
In solidarity with the many other events in autumn, we refrain from rescheduling the Ortler Bike Marathon to the already overflowing autumn calendar. We have faith that you will support us and hopefully await the 2021 edition with even greater anticipation.
Since the first edition, we have been working to provide all professional athletes, amateurs, young athletes, mountainbike fans, helpers and spectators with a great, athletic and emotional race weekend with many unforgettable experiences.
We couldn’t do it this year.
We are now putting all our strength and passion into the fourth edition of the Ortler Bike Marathon on June 5, 2021.
Although not provided for in the regulations, the registration you have already made will remain and will be carried over to the next year at no extra charge. There are no additional costs for you when you rebook the route.
A refund of the registration fee is not possible. As a non-profit organization, we cover part of the costs with it that have already been incurred and therefore hope for your solidarity and understanding.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank not only those who have already registered for the 2020 race, but also our sponsors, partner companies and volunteers who have supported us and who will continue to carry the Ortler Bike Marathon with us into the future.
Stay healthy and write down #OBM 05.06.2021!
The organising committee of the Ortler Bike Marathon.
