This year our dear partners & supporters are providing tons of great stuff again for all riders at Tour de Friends III. We don´t want you to miss anything. So here is an overview of all the great free stuff and what you can win & get at RAD RACE Tour de Friends.
We are looking forward to seeing you on tour. It all starts July 7 with the grand opening in Augsburg <3
You know that RAD RACE Tour de Friends is not a stage race. It's not about the fastest team, not about tactical racing. However, you got the chance to win amazing prices, for some, you have to go all out, or you have to take great pictures!
KINGS & QUEENS OF THE MOUNTAINS
It's not about being the overall fastest team at RAD RACE "Tour de Friends", but if you want to prove how strong you are go for one of our STRAVA Challenges. The fastest men and women will be rewarded with great prices.
On almost all stages we got at least one Strava challenge for you. Ride as fast as you can to win some awesome prices! And this year for the first time there will be mountain jerseys for the fastest climbers after each stage.
Follow the RAD RACE x STRAVA Club NOW because only then you will be able to take part in the challenges. Well, of course you have to upload your rides after each stage…
Here are the links to the 6 challenges.
Stage 1: NO CHALLENGE
Stage 2: DT SWISS CHALLENGE & GARMIN CHALLENGE
Stage 3: GORE WEAR CHALLENGE & CONTINENTAL CHALLENGE
Stage 4: FIDLCOK CHALLENGE
Stage 5: SELLE SAN MARCO CHALLENGE
STORY OF THE DAY BY DEUTSCHE BAHN
When 400 friends cycle across the Alps, there are tons of stories to tell. About pain, fear and joy. We want to hear them! Even better. We want to reward you for your story.

TEST THE BEST
Our partners also provide their products for a proper 664km test ride across the Alps and Dolomites. Here is an overview:
A HELMET BY PROFESSIONALS FOR PROFESSIONALS. Don’t accept compromises. In cycling, the best rider with the best equipment wins. Winners bet on the AirBreaker. We love it! So we thought you should test it! 30 riders get the chance to test the helmet the full 664km from Augsburg to Feltre.
There are 30 test helmets available. Check here if there are still some left. However, ask us at the check-in if a helmet is still available.
