1st ISCHGL OVERMOUNTAIN CHALLENGE – NEW ENDURO BIKE-EVENT IN THE SILVRETTA BIKE ARENA
Endless trails, a dreamy mountain panorama and having fun with friends. Ischgl and pre-mium partner Cannondale present the first European Open from 13th to 15th September 2013. At it you won’t just get to compete with the fastest Enduro Racers in the continent, all singletrail fans will have everything they need too. At the 1st Ischgl Overmountain Challenge, along with endurance and skill, it’s all about having fun on the endless singletrails with friends, like-minded people and stars from the biking scene. The Silvretta Bike Arena between Ischgl and Swiss Samnaun provides a sheer unlimited range of opportunities to do just that. Trails as far as the eye can see. The competition mode at this MTB-Enduro event is simple and promises maximum fun on the trails. For assessing your performance there are specific time measurement areas on certain sections of the trail, and it is these which will prove decisive. This means you get pedal in relaxed fashion uphill, or use Ischgl’s cable car facilities. You can take your time and talk shop about the legendary singletrails and their key sections or simply enjoy the impressive mountains in the Silvretta – at least until the start of the next test, where each person has to complete their own personal singletrail race against the clock. At the end of the Enduro circuit times from specific test sections are combined and a winner will be named.
