Octopus Gravel Event


A breathtaking event course, delicious food and pumping music all day long. Octopus Gravel is the meeting point for gravel enthusiasts and mountain lovers.

The event course consists of 7 spectacular dead-end gravel road passes.

All of them lead back to the main event, allowing you the chance to rest, have some food and drinks, listen to some great beats and soak up the atmosphere at the event expo, before tackling the next segment.

Challenge yourself and find out how many of the 7 gravel climbs you can do in a day. The maximum amount of riding would be 155km and 4350hm. 

Octopus Gravel also offers 3 timed climbs between 4km and 7km in the spirit of a special race. There is a women’s category and a men’s category, the fastest will receive prizes.

Octopus Gravel delivers a unique format, providing you the freedom to choose the amount of riding and climbing yourself.

All segments are dead-end gravel road climbs and lead back to the main event area, allowing you the chance to rest, have some food and drinks, listen to some great beats and check out the event expo, before then tackling the next segment. The 7 turnaround points are in between 8 – 17km away from the event area.

That racers also come into their own, Octopus Gravel offers 3 enduro-style timed uphill sections of 4-7km. The top 3 of each category in the overall ranking will receive prizes.
The overall time will not be recorded. This allows you to tackle the descents at your speed, enjoy the spectacular landscape, the feed zones on top of every segment and the company of your fellow riders.

The idea is that every participant does as much as they can or feel like. To complete all 7 passes will be a serious challenge and deserves the title of Queen or King of Octopus Gravel. As you probably know, a real Octopus has 8 arms. To be the ultimate Queen or King of Octopus Gravel, you also have to make it to the after party and rock it all night.

The event area will be located at the main parking lot in the center of Andermatt. We expect a busy and entertaining atmosphere throughout the entire day.
