Information for Participants

Here you will find all the additional information you need about the ŠKODA Velotour on September 19th.

TISSOT BERGKÖNIG/IN

Every year, the Tissot Mountain King and Queen are crowned as part of the ŠKODA Velotour. A lucrative prize awaits the two winners!

Your chance to win a high quality Tissot Sport watch!


As a long-standing sponsor and timekeeper of Eschborn-Frankfurt, the traditional Swiss watch brand Tissot was also present at the on 1 May 2019. An integral part of the 58th edition: the battle for the title of Tissot Mountain Queen and King among the most ambitious ŠKODA Velotour participants, which has made the challenging climb to the Großer Feldberg even more exciting since 2014. Year after year, new best times are set, which Tissot rewards with a special mountain classification jersey - red dotted for the men, pink dotted for the women - as well as a high-quality sports watch.

All those who take part in the ŠKODA Velotour Classic or ŠKODA Velotour Express will take part in the special mountain classification: starting in Oberursel, the time each rider needs to complete the approximately eleven-kilometre route up to the Feldberg plateau will be determined. Last year, the clock stopped at 25:07 minutes for the fastest man; in the women's category, the winning time of the Tissot Mountain Queen was 30:48 minutes. This means that both of the previous year's best times were beaten once again.

Who will win the prestigious title in 2021?

Tissot Mountain Queen & King 2019:


In the women's race, Sarah Kistner from "Team GS-Allgäu" took first place and conquered the Feldberg with a best time of 28:41 minutes. In the men's category, Daniel Slobodin from "Team Racing Team WINAX - food artists" won the prestigious title of Tissot Bergkönig in a time of 23:16 minutes.

Why Logwin? Logwin operates a Europe-wide transport network that has specialised in the transport of bikes for several years.
