Finally, the time has come: The skiers and snowboarders have left the pistes and starting on May 10, Bikepark Leogang is back in the hands of mountain bikers. On top of a ton of action, adrenaline and airtime, riders can also look forward to a number of spectacular events in 2018.
All those who are keen to get the first park laps in can look forward to the Opening Weekend from May 10 – 13. Thanks to head shaper Reini Leitner and his team, preparations are already in full swing and to celebrate the Opening Weekend Bikepark Leogang will offer a 15% discount on day- and multi-day tickets for the duration of the weekend (excluding season passes). Riders can enjoy nine different trails of varying difficulties in Bikepark Leogang, including Europe’s biggest beginner bikepark, the Riders Playground, technical singletrails, Freeride- and Northshore trails and, of course, the World Cup track.
The first big event highlight of the season is coming up just 4 weeks after the season opening. The Out of Bounds Festival from June 7 – 10 combines the Mercedes-Benz UCI Downhill World Cup with a spectacular supporting program. Next to the large pit and expo area, where visitors have the chance to rub elbows with the world’s best downhill riders, the Out of Bounds Festival also includes several side events that are open to public participation. Further highlights are the spectacular freestyle motocross show and a large open-air concert. Tickets and further information about the Out of Bounds Festival 2018 can be found on mtb-weltcup.at.
The next event highlight follows at the end of August in form of the brand-new BIKE Festival Saalfelden Leogang. After stops in Riva and Willingen the BIKE Festival will take place in Saalfelden Leogang for the first time. From August 31 to September 2 visitors can look forward to events and competitions for young and old, mountain bikers and e-mountain bikers, several challenging test tracks and of course the large bike expo that includes the presentation of the freshest bikes that are in the pipeline for 2019. A great atmosphere and several parties round out the stacked program. Further information about the BIKE Festival Saalfelden Leogang can be found on leogang.bike-festival.de.
Concluding the 2018 event season in proper fashion, the Fan Weekend will be taking place October 5 – 7. Fun and bucket loads of biking action are guaranteed and camping will be free for the duration of the Fan Weekend (excluding visitor’s tax).
