If you like gravel grinding, climbing, stunning Austrian views and expertly curated routes, then this collection is for you. 

Hans Peter Obwaller (HPO to his friends) has created another stunning collection for FulGaz that takes you into the heart of the Austrian/Italian mountains. 

We don’t like to use too many adjectives when talking about HPO’s rides as we’d rather let them do the talking.

You can find all these rides under NEW in the FulGaz App.

Maria Alm To Hundstein

After a few flat kilometers to warmup the race segment starts on tarmac before moving onto the gravel – sometimes good surface, sometimes bad surfaces, sometimes steep, sometimes flat, short times even downhills. But always with a stunning panorama. Finish at the Statzer Haus and around the building right to the summit cross of the Hundstein mountain at 2117m above sea level.

Matreier Törl To Adler Lounge

The ride starts at the Matreier Törl Haus (if you want to bike up to this spot, select the ride “Matreier Törl Haus”), At 2207m the terrain varies continuously up to the turn-off to the Adler Lounge. From there it gets really tough. It’s a really bad gravel road and partly very steep and the high altitude makes it even more difficult IRL. Finish finally at the Adler Lounge at 2421m an d enjoy the superb views.

Lienz To Hochsteinkreuz

Starting alongside the Isel River on a bike path to warm up the legs for the upcoming very tough climb to the Hochsteinkreuz (2057m). The first half of the climb is on the “Pustertaler Höhenstrasse” which is quite often part of the Tour of Austria, Giro d Italia or Tour of the Alps. The last kilometre is on very rough gravel… But you’ll be rewarded with a small loop around a real summit and with stunning 360 degree views.

Dramatic scenery will greet you when you ride in and out of the valley where you’ll see the devastating effects of the recent 2021 flooding. Once out of the valley a little flat loop follows to recovery your legs.
