Not to forget the fourcross racers, that will fight some exciting battles in the Euro Fourcross Series. The Out of Bound festival promises to once more become a fantastic weekend and at the same time the perfect rehearsal for the UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships taking place from August 29th – September 9th in Saalfelden Leogang this year.
For everybody who is into spectacular tricks and air acrobatics, the 26TRIX fueled by Monster Energy will be the highlight of the year. The dirt jump course in Saalfelden Leogang is known as one of the most challenging ones of the scene and guarantees impressive jumps and massive airtime. But there is more: since the 26TRIX is a Gold level event in the Freeride Mountain Bike World Tour, the stars of the international dirt jump scene won’t hesitate to fly over and pull out their most impressive tricks to place themselves well in the run for the overall FMB World Tour Champion 2012 title.
Another must-see of the weekend are the races of the Euro Fourcross Series that picked Saalfelden Leogang as one of its five stops. You can expect action at its best when four riders give everything in the head to head races to decide who is Europe’s most fast and furious fourcross racer.
Anyone with weak nerves better stays at home when the downhill athletes tear down the track during the iXS European Downhill Cup. At the same time, the race is the perfect main rehearsal for the downhill race of the UCI Mountain Bike & Trials World Championships that will draw huge crowds to Saalfelden Leogang from August 29th – September 9th. At the latest when the titans of downhill challenge each other the technical course, every bike fanatic will definitively get their money’s worth.
If that is not enough, make sure you don’t miss the by now legendary Bunny Hop Contest and the Override Afterparty. Every year, this is where pro riders and fans hang out and party together until dawn. To calm the nerves, the annual BBQ at the B3 and the expo area to catch up on the latest trends in the bike scene, is the place to be.
So mark May 24th – 27th in your calendar, pack your good mood and off you go to the beautiful biking paradise in the Salzburger Land.
