Glacier Bike Downhill 11 March 2017

The spectacular Glacier Bike Downhill!

This incredible event really gets the adrenaline pumping - for the spectators as well as the competitors! Bike races on earth or tarmac can be fast enough, but here the daredevil cyclists are racing downhill at breakneck speeds on ice and snow! And they have to master a height difference of 1,700 m, starting from an elevation of 3,500 m.

Competition "Youtube"-Video

We congratulate Raffael Lehmann. He's the winner in our competition for the most popular "Youtube" video. 

The bikers start at Mittelallain on 3,500 m. The starting process from the last year will be maintained. They will start in different blocks. The starting block allocation is made based on the ranking point of the prevoius years.

Afterwards they ride down to the glacier village at 1,800 m. And it's not just their rivals the competitors have to worry about as they have to take on a steep track covered in snow and ice. A big challenge for even the most experienced mountain bikers!

After the race is over and the competitors have been rewarded with reenergising snacks and drinks, a prize-giving ceremony is held at the finish line.
