Out of Bounds updates

The Out of Bounds Festival (July 10th – 19th) is happy to have found several partners for the different events happening during the ten festival days. Some alliances can look back on long years of successful cooperation; other partners enter the holiday region’s world for the first time this year. The Out of Bounds Festival Leogang is particularly proud to announce the Austrian Bank “Erste Bank” as the new main sponsor. At the same time, the festival presents itself with a brand new homepage: www.outofbounds.at/en

The Out of Bounds Festival is not only the talk of the town in the world of mountain biking. In the region, the preparations are also in full swing and the visitors of Saalfelden Leogang are sure to once again experience an exceptional festival. This year, Saalfelden Leogang is overjoyed to have won the Erste Bank as main sponsor. Stefan Pühringer, CEO of the Leogang Event GmbH explains: “Our festival has become absolutely legendary and in 2011 we can even top past years’ successes with the UCI World Cup, which this year is part of the Out of Bounds Festival. In order to realise a festival of such high quality, you obviously need strong partners. In the Erste Bank, we have found such a partner who is at home in the region and enjoys the highest prestige. We are proud of the vote of confidence from the Erste Bank and are looking forward to carrying out the festival with such strong support.”

From June 10th to 12th the UCI World Cup is stopping in Saalfelden Leogang and will let the athletes show some stunning feats on two wheels. The event’s sponsors do not doubt that fact either and so the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang, Monster Energy, Zipfer, CamelBak, Uniqa, OEBB and Kona did not hesitate before they sealed the partnership.

While the UCI World Cup is all about speed, the 26TRIX fuelled by Monster Energy (June 16th to 18th) focuses on the right style and the best tricks. Some of the world’s best riders are already standing in line to collect valuable points for their overall ranking at the first Gold event of this year’s FMB World Tour season. Of course, Monster Energy, Kona, One Big Park, CamelBak and POC are happy to support such an event.

The fact that Kona has been supporting the bike sport in the region for years is hardly a secret. This does not change during the Out of Bounds Festival and the Bike and clothing manufacturer joins title sponsor iXS in support of the iXS Downhill Cup (June 18th to 19th). The race of the European Fourcross Series (June 17th to 18th) can also look forward to the event with Kona’s support. As a side note, the Austrian Championships in Foucross are taking place on the same days.
