Glocknerkönig LIGHT category

All those who want to save the drive from the village square Bruck to Ferleiten and challenge the calves on a pure altitude tour are exactly right at the Light Glocknerkönig. The route is closed to traffic during the entire tour from 7:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (exception: cars of the organization, road maintenance and blue light emergency organizations).

Attention: The participants of the Glocknerkönig Light, who arrive by car to Ferleiten, must be on the way at the latest from 06:45 in Bruck in the direction of the tollgate, because after the start of the Glocknerkönig Classic in Bruck at the village square an approach by car in the direction of Fusch / Ferleiten is no longer possible due to the large field of participants!

Timing: Computer chip timing provided by Fa. Datasport - Switzerland

Note: Our partner Datasport works since this year with the most accurate transponder system on the market. The timing chip is integrated into a saddle seat start number.
The chip deposit and chip rental are waived this year because they are disposable chips!

Ranking Light: For the first five finishers, the gross time will be taken. Thus, the first five rated according to the order of crossing the finish line (separately in men and women).
From here on the actual (net) time will be taken. The time of each starter is only triggered when crossing the start line.
