Going up just to come down
Marco can no longer imagine a life without a bike. For him it has become part of his life to find peace and tranquility.Read more
Marco Brandstätter is an enthusiastic biker since his childhood. He got his first mountain bike at the age of 11. Be it a road bike, an Enduro bike, a Race-Fully, E-Bike, Up-Hill bike or a Hard-Tail - the most important thing is that it has two wheels and Marco can discover the trails in his home, the Kitzbüheler Alpen.
What is so appealing about mountain biking in the Kitzbüheler Alpen? It’s the tranquility, being far away from the hustle and bustle and of course, from the noise. Marco finds peace and relaxation on his bike and can leave the stress of everyday life behind in the valley. For him it is clear: cycling is not only a fulfilling sport, but a way of life.
Marco’s career complements his hobby perfectly in his own bike shop in Kirchdorf in Tirol. His recommendation for mountain bikers who like to approach tours with planning and comfort and who can’t get enough of the Tyrolean mountains – the KAT Bike multi-day bike tour.
