The Kühtai Rodeo is a challenge with a single goal, to reach Kühtai (the finish area in front of the tourist information in the village centre) within one day from all three starting points. That means covering a total of 122 kilometres and 4,250 vertical meters from the villages of Kematen, Ötz and Haiming. You can choose to start the Kühtai Rodeo at the roundabout in Kematen, Ötz or Haiming and these roundabouts are also the turning points.
When starting the Rodeo in Kematen, for example, you ride up to Kühtai and then down to Ochsengarten, up a short distance to the Haiminger Sattele and then down to Haiming. At the roundabout in Haiming, you turn around and battle back up 1,000 vertical metres to the Haiminger Sattele, cruise down to Ochsengarten and then ride back up to Kühtai on the extremely steep and notorious "Stopfer" climb. In this case, the descent leads back down to Ochsengarten but instead of riding back up to the Haiminger Sattele, you continue a rapid descent via Ötzerau to the roundabout in Ötz. At the roundabout, you turn around and head back up to Kühtai one last time. From Ötz, the route covers 1,200 vertical metres of sometimes steep terrain. Once in Kühtai, you can call yourself a Kühtai Cowboy or Kühtai Cowgirl. The finale is the fast ride back down to Kematen.
