The Bikepark Leogang will host two international mountain bike competitions from September 19th to 21st. The 26TRIX dirt jump contest will unite 50 riders from 15 countries to battle for a prize money fund of 8.000 euros. And the last tour stop of the iXS European Downhill Cup 2008 will showcase pure racing action.
Back in the beginning of June, the 26TRIX contest had to be postponed because of bad weather conditions. But the course, which had been improved in comparison to last year’s track, is still waiting to be shredded. The riders from all over the world can’t wait to jump the big sized doubles.
The big comeback of the 26TRIX in September will be split up in a qualifying and a finals day: Qualifications on Friday 19th from 11:30 am and finals on Saturday 20th from 05:00 pm. Be prepared to watch fifty riders battling for their way into the finals. On Saturday, the best 15 dirt jumpers will show their sickest tricks to win the 26TRIX 2008. You have seen the list of riders, so be sure that the contest will be packed full of mad action. On top, the rider with the best skills and most props will be crowned with the Oakley Sick O Award.
But as said, not only the dirt jump maniacs will be served in Leogang during this weekend. The racers competing in the last tour stop of the iXS European Downhill Cup 2008 will face a course with a length of 2.3 kilometers and a vertical drop of 480 meters. Bikepark Leogang’s downhill track called “Speedster” is known as a technically very challenging one. But not only pro riders are meant to take part. Also amateurs are welcome to register on: http://www.ixsdownhillcup.com/.
The iXS European Downhill Cup seeding runs are scheduled for Saturday 20th from 02:00 pm on, the finals for Sunday 21st from 12:30 pm.
