Epic Bikepark Leogang - Full Speed into the Endless Summer
18 September 2019 | By billy1979
Following a successful Bike Festival, during which visitors were able to check out and test some of the hottest products for 2020, the next season highlight is already here.
Mountain bikers of all levels can look forward to extending their bike season in Epic Bikepark Leogang, which will be open until 3 November this year, with something special happening on the weekend of 5 and 6 October, so save the date!
Once again, the Epic Bikepark Leogang was host to a slew of mountain bike events that captured the hearts of mountain bikers from around the world. Last weekend, staying true to the motto of “Expo, Sport and Party”, 80 exhibitors gathered at the foot of the Asitz to show off more than 100 brands to about 8,000 interested visitors, showcasing some of the coolest products of the upcoming season. The expo was side-by-side with an action-packed schedule of competition highlights – the SCOTT Enduro Series, the Rocky Mountain BIKE Marathon, the GHOST Recon Ride, the Scott Junior Trophy and the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship Qualifier electrified spectators and riders alike. And the party isn’t over as the bike season continues with extended opening times.
Flat out shredding until 3 November
Riders can look forward to shredding the trails in and around Epic Bikepark Leogang until 3 November. The Asitzbahn gondola will take riders to their favorite trails until 20 October, at which point the Steinbergbahn Gondola will take over for the last two weeks of the season. Additionally, there are a number of classes on offer thanks to the bike school Elements Outdoorsports, where riders can book skill classes, guided bike tours and more. For the more adrenaline seeking riders, the Riders Playground, with its new 5,000 m² / 53,000 Sq ft. pump track, will also be open until the beginning of November.
Another highlight of the endless bike summer is the traditional Leogang Fan Weekend. On 5 and 6 October, Epic Bikepark Leogang invites all interested riders for a Get-Together to say thanks to their shaper crew and their fans. Gondola tickets will be discounted by 20% and camping will be free, while there will also be a fun race on the Bongo Bongo trail on Saturday, a shreddy surprise on Sunday and further specials. It’s an endless bike summer indeed.
With the bike season still in full swing, there is already something spectacular to look forward to for next year: Epic Bikepark Leogang will host the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Championships presented by Mercedes-Benz from 4 to 6 September 2020.
Leogang Bikepark in Austria has established itself as one of the best recommended mountain bike parks in Europe and is one of eleven carefully selected 'Kona Groove Approved' bike parks worldwide.
