The 18th TOUR Transalp, the original week-long amateur stage race, is our top pick for cyclists looking to ride a multi-day gran fondo in 2021.

With a new “risk free full refund” cancellation policy, TOUR Transalp offers attendees peace of mind and ultimate flexibility in this uncertain time of coronavirus risk.

The policy provides FULL refund of registration fees for any reason until 1 May 2021 – no questions asked.  In addition, if you cannot participate due to coronavirus health issues or the effects of the pandemic (travel, regulations, stay-at-home orders, etc.), TOUR Transalp will offer full refunds up until the start of the event on 20 June.

Each participant may also transfer their starting bib to any person without incurring additional costs or transfer it to 2022 free of charge.

That is an industry leading cancellation/refund policy in a time when many gran fondo organizers are ripping-off riders with unscrupulous cancellation and refund policies.

The bucket list worthy TOUR Transalp 2021 will run from 20-26 June, starting in the Italian Dolomite city of Brunico and finish by Lake Garda in Arco. Over seven spectacular stages amateur cyclists will crisscross the Alps, climb Grand Tour passes totaling 18,000 meters and compete on 781 kilometers of stunning alpine roads.

Registration is limited to 1000 riders and is a bargain at only 999 Euros (799 for U23 riders).   The fee includes professional scoring/timing, daily baggage transport, moto-support/emergency services, feed stations, post-ride food, mechanical support, event jersey and awards. Lodging and other services are also available.
