A professional logistic team of 20 persons will take care of you bags (included in your starter package) each day. They will pick up your bag from your hotel and then transport it to the next stage town, directly into your hotel. Using this service is absolutely worthwhile and gives you the change to concentrate 100% on the race.
In each stage town you can find a “Do it yourself” Bike Wash Station, which is equipped with high-pressure cleaners and detergents.
There will be a bike park in each stage town. Each participant is allowed to leave his bike in this consistent supervised area. This service is outsourced to a professional security company.
The Chill out Area right next to the start and finish area is the perfect place to relax, to recover and to get to know others. Furthermore, you get delicious smoothies, cool drinks and small snacks free in a very laid-back atmosphere.
The company Datasport of Switzerland will take care of the timekeeping. Modern technologies and a long history of transalp experience will guaranty a smooth timekeeping.
There will be a gentle team waiting for you to offer a great variety of food on the course and next to the finish area. The variety consists of sandwiches, cakes, and specialties of the region, fruits but also drinks.
A professional bike service team will be in the finish area and on the course to care for a base repair service. Supported by different sponsors and partners of various segments usual repairs can be done free of charge. You just have to pay for the spare parts you are in need of. Next to this service, you can repair your bike by your own at every catering point as we provide the regular tool kids, air pumps, tubes and trades.
A team of round about 80 people per stage will be working for you, to take care of your security while driving along the route.

Next to services and information, you also have the opportunity to buy things.
A moderator and good music will provide information and good feelings all day long.

In the morning it can be quite cold but you don´t want to carry your jacket? It´s rainy while riding your bike and you can´t wait to get into dry and warm cloth? With our Day Bag Service you don´t have to care about this issues. Just put your things into the bag you get with your starter package and give it to the Day Bag Counter just next to the starting area. Right after crossing the finish line the Day Bag will be waiting for you nearby.
