Next Race: February 13th 2021 (1 day).
Terrain Description: Mud, slippery rocks, forest and small rivers.
Racetrack Format: Our race is a mix of Romaniacs and Erzberg – multiple laps and multiple checks. We have different lines for Gold/ Silver vs. Bronze/ Iron. A pro rider will get multiple laps in. But other riders might not get to do multiple laps – they try to reach as many checks as possible. In 2020 there was only one main event. The start was in rows lined up by classes. The race duration was 4-5 hours, and the goal of the racers was to make as many laps as possible. Only 30% of the field made one lap. It will be the same format in 2021 – race time 3-4 hours, but there will be an additional Iron class.
Average Daily Riding Time: 3 – 4 hours.
Racetrack markings: The tracks are marked with tape, arrows and signs if the course splits for Gold/ Silver vs. Bronze/ Iron
GPS Mandatory: No GPS needed (and not helpful), the course is marked
Categories: Gold, Silver, Bronze, Iron
Entry Fee: US70$.
