All information about the Dreiländergiro in regard to the Covid-19 pandemic

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce that the Dreiländergiro and the Girodays 2020 cannot take place.

We are more than sad to reach out to you with such bad news. The progressive effects of the Covid-19 pandemic in recent days have already given rise to assume the worst. Today, the Austrian Federal Government has published a ban on events until the end of June. This also leads to the unfortunate conclusion that the Dreiländergiro 2020 cannot take place in Nauders. We were very much looking forward to celebrating the 27th edition of the Dreiländergiro with you and we promise that we will do our best to make sure that we can still come together and connect digitally.

The cancellation of the Dreiländergiro gave us a lot to think about and brought us back to the meaning of this longstanding event. The intention of the Girodays has always been to bring together enthusiastic cyclists from all over the world. The cancellation of the Dreiländergiro won’t stop us from pursuing this mission. Especially in these difficult times it is all the more important to keep doing sports and stay in motion. We also want to thank you for the many positive messages and for all your understanding! There are still a few organizational questions left unanswered, which we will clarify in the next few days. Of course we will keep you informed. However, it was important for us to inform you straight away about the legal governmental decision.

Yes! There will be a Dreiländergiro jersey 2020! You will definitely have the possibility to expand your collection of Dreiländergiro jerseys (or start with your collection 😉 ). Of course this won't be a conventional "finisher jersey", but a "for better or worse" jersey, which symbolizes that we stick together even in these challenging days. The jersey will be given to every participant who decides to donate the entry fee of 2020 and renounces a refund or transfers their starting place for a regular early bird price of € 79,90.

The details and design of the "For better or worse" jersey will be revealed on May 11th.

We look forward to recognize some of the Dreiländergiro superheroes by the jersey at the starting line in 2021!
