Montegrappa Transalp 2020
EVENT CANCELLED

We are sad to announce that Tour Transalp 2020 has been cancelled due to the current covid-19 emergency situation.

The German Commitee eventually decided that the current condition do not allow the regular development of the race.

The idea is that the event will take place with the same stages and routes in June 2021.

We hope this will be confirmed as we are already working to bring back Transalp to our beloved Monte Grappa!
