Organizers of the 11th annual Jeantex Bike TransAlp named the stage towns and announced registration will open for the 2008 edition on July 19-26.

Registration will kick off at noon Central European time on December 1. The first 300 online applications will be guaranteed a start spot. And additional 200 spots will be drawn from all the remaining entries received with a postmark of January 3, 2008, or sooner.

The 500 participating pairs will face 650km and 21,000m of elevation gain on their way from Fuessen to Riva del Garda. Along the way, they will head through Austria's stage towns Imst and Ischgl to Scuol – the only Swiss resort in 2008 – and further on to Livigno, Naturns, Kaltern and Andalo in Italy before finishing traditionally at Lake Garda.
