„There are only a few routes through the Alps which a mountain biker must have experienced. The Transalp Maloja definitely belongs in this category. In the Alps, nothing surpasses the legendary Pass Costainas trail, the loneliness of the Val Mora and the elemental force of the Swiss glaciers. However, good preparation and good equipment are a requirement for this route. You should be sure to mount fat tires, because the paths are technically demanding.“
