Impressions of the most brutal mountain time trial north of the Alps.
768 meters above sea level, the pass lies on the Buchenegg am Albis. At a distance of 2.75 kilometers and over 237 meters of altitude with a temporary gradient of 12 percent, once a year they fight for honor and fame. It is according to unconfirmed sources the hardest mountain time trial in the world. 28 drivers started in 2005 for the first international-legal mountain time trial Buchenegg-Ostwand. They wore names like Chettehünd Zurigo, Züri 3, Flachpass and Jamarossi. Today it's about 150 Cyclistes who are in the starting list. The world record is 08:52:09 and comes from the year 2011. Ferdi Kübler's best time was 11 minutes. "But we started differently than the drivers today," the cycling legend told the "Tages-Anzeiger".
