The mountain bikers will turn Schladming´s night into day!
The final of the season for the best mountain bikers of the world will be carried out from September 8th to 10th 2006 on the “Planai”.
This is the third time for the world´s best mountain bikers to show off their skills in Schladming.
The organising club “ASVÖ Mountainbike Schladming” has been successful to bring the only World cup for mountain bikers taking place in Austria into the Dachstein-Tauern region. Not only is the MTB World cup the only one in Austria, but at the same time it´s one of two triple events taking place in Europe. Together with the final of the season we can talk of one of the greatest UCI MTB event after the world championship in New Zealand.
At the speed races, i.e. Downhill & Four cross in the Planai Olympic stadium giants of the scene like Cedric Gracia (FRA), Nathan Rennie (AUS) or Steve Peat (GBR) as well as female top stars are predicted to present a merciless race. The Four cross taking place on September 9th in the night with 700.000-watt floodlights assures action and excitement.
The 5.000 square meter big Planai Olympic stadium, functioning this year again as the target site for all of the races, will again be remodelled into a camp site for all drivers. This will create a unique ambience in the popular Austrian city Schladming for mountain biking.
Together with the 15 meters Giant truck, the Specialised and the Shimano truck more than 60 teams and exhibitors will grant a view behind the scenes of professional Mountain biking.
Olympic Cross country city race Schladming
The culmination of the World cup weekend is the Cross country city race on Saturday which will start at the main square of Schladming. Not only Olympic champion Bart Brentjens from the Netherlands but also the whole Cross country world elite including the Austrian top riders will be competing for the overall World cup on the shortened track.
All riders, male and female, with a valid UCI licence (U 23 as well) are authorised to start at the World cup competitions! The total prize value amounts to more than € 30.000. Straight after each race in the final of the season in Schladming the overall World cup champions will be honoured with an emotional ceremony.
But Schladming will offer not only sporting sensations during that weekend, the well known “Schladming Nightlive” will care during those days for the best atmosphere as well. For social lions not to be neglected Live Acts will be shown in the Planai stadium and a FM4 party will be taking place in Schladming´s city hall.
