21st World Games of Mountainbiking
With altitudes between 1,000 and 2,100 metres, the grass-covered mountains of the Pinzgau Grasberge provide the ideal conditions for the competition.
Go to the limits
The 21 kilometres distance with 880 height metres is ideal for first timers and those who race for the first time. Also rookies (born in 2004 or 2005) are welcome to compete in this distance.
You need stamina and a high level of fitness for the marathon. Rookies can take part in the shortest course with 31 kilometres at an altitude of 1,160 m. Anyone who thinks they can do more can take part in the marathon with 42 kilometres and an altitude of 1.980 or even choose the longer distance of 58 kilometres at an altitude of 2,920 metres. Ambitious bikers can push their limits along the entire marathon route stretching 80 kilometres and at an altitude of 3,678 m.
Spectators cheer on the bikers at the finish line as well as at the highest points of the route – on the Westgipfel and Schattberg summits.
Kids on bikes
Boys and girls compete against each other again in six different age categories for the Junior Trophy. The Rookies (year 2004 - 2005) can try the first time the new marathon distance of 21 km and an altitude of 880 meters.
