Glockner Hochtor

Hof, Kärnten, Austria

Mountain - New

Großglockner after a sudden winter period. Its the uphill from south from Heiligenblut to the Hochtor (2504m). The scenery is completely different to the summer ride at 30 degrees. Enjoy an amazing and awesome video where everything above a certain height is covered with snow! A tough ride in reality due to low temperatures but luckily without traffic. The climb from south is not used as often in the "Tour of Austria" as the one from the north. The current record holder is Beat Zberg (Switzerland). Another very prominent winner was Jakob Fuglsang (Astana) in 2012. Two times the Giro d Italia climbed the Großglockner from south (1971 and 2011).
