The route now leads in a northwesterly direction via Krumpendorf and the Hallegger ponds, past Lendorf to St. Veit/Kraig. Via Feldkirchen and Moosburg, the first loop leads back to the transition area in Klagenfurt, where the second loop - along the 2011 route - is then tackled. Of course, this has to be mastered only once more with its challenges Ribnig-Hügel and Rupertiberg.

Here is the Strava link to the new route.

Here you can find the route details in the Carinthia Tour Portal.
