Next Race: October 29th – 30th 2021 (2 days).
Terrain Description: German forest!
Racetrack Format: Until 2019, Getzen Rodeo was always a 1-day event with 2 races. First a 2 hour race in the morning, where the 20 fastest riders would qualify for the final and second race of 90 minutes. The two races are held on the same course, but the final is run the other way around, making the track a lot more difficult. For the first time in 2021 there will be a prologue on Friday night (29th of Oct. 2021) which will determine the starting position for the first race. Other than that, the race format will probably be quite similar to 2019.
