After the successful – although rainy – premiere in 2018, this is the second edition of the Continental BIKE Festival in Leogang, and the weather on the first day couldn’t be better. From the beginning, it was quite busy at the expo arena. At each corner people gazed at technical novelties, chatted about the hottest 2020er trends over a coffee or tried out new bikes on the great trails in the Bikepark. Until Sunday, 60 exhibitors showcase around 100 brands and offer several specials and activities for the visitors.
Furthermore there is a full packed program of race action and side events. From the sporty side, the first day started with the Ghost Recon Ride, a fun orienteering ride with challenges such as paddling and sawing. This event is mostly about the fun, rather than racing for victory. More about competing are the race highlights of the following days. The queen discipline of the BIKE Festivals, the Rocky Mountain BIKE Marathon, takes place on Saturday.
Afterward the focus is on the brandnew Velosolutions Pumptrack, where the riders will fight for a ticket to the Red Bull Pump Track World Championship final in Bern. The best four women and men will qualify.
Also on Sunday it won’t be boring at all, thanks to the final of the Scott Enduro Series 2019 and the Scott Junior Trophy that will – for the first time – take place on the Pumptrack.
