The best of the dramatic Austrian and Italian Alps!

The Alps, with their soaring elevations, curvy roads and switchback-infested passes, are always a challenge on a motorcycle. But the first-ever AMA Alps Challenge Tour will put your two-wheel talent to the test over a total of nearly 20 high-mountain passes and seven days of epic riding.

The Alps Challenge Tour, designed from the beginning to be an AMA member (and family and friends) trek, starts in Erding, Germany, a town just east of Munich, and heads south into Austria, smack dab into some of the most spectacular mountains on earth.

From there we’ll head further south to the medieval town of Lienz, Austria, and a day later into beautiful Collalbo. From there it’s on to Livigno, Italy, and the amazing Dolomites for a day of rest (or more riding!), and then we’ll head to the Ötztal, Austria, before riding north again toward Munich.

Along the way we’ll traverse 17 of the most epic passes on earth, through Austria, Italy and Switzerland, and have a blast doing it! You’ll not only do some of best riding of your life (and probably learn a lot along the way), you’re likely to meet some lifelong friends, as well. After a long day of riding, "Edelweiss Evenings" are famous for their good times, great food and drink, and even better memories, and you’ll collect plenty.

This will be an epic motorcycle trip, one you’ll remember forever!

From Mitch Boehm, AMA Editorial Director: "I can’t tell you how much fun we had on the AMA Alps Challenge Tours! With a mix of AMA members from around the country and a handful of my friends (none of whom had ever ridden in the Alps), we had a total blast each and every day, riding the rollercoaster-esque roads, negotiating the many switchback-infested passes, enjoying the amazing geography and history of the region, and of course sampling each day the food and – at night – adult beverages. It was the best Alps trip of my life, and I’ve been on several. So come play with us, either on the AMA Alps Challenge I, the AMA Alps Challenge II, or the icing on the cake at the AMA Alps Challenge III! You know it´s gonna be epic!"
