SCOTT Junior Trophy NEW!

Last year more than 400 kids and youngsters between three and 14 participated in the SCOTT Junior Trophy. The number of entries has already increased by 25 % so far! In particular, there is great feedback regarding the brand new parcours-contests!  Hereby the participants have the opportunity to tackle the various obstacles proving their biking skills without any time pressure. The classification is not according to the age groups but to the wheel seize!

There will be no XC races anymore for the kids of the U7! Starting at U9 age group and older, the kids can decide for themselves if they want to tackle the parocurs without timing or the XC-Rennen with timing. Up to U13 there will be entirely separated races for girls and boys. In the U15 they will continue starting together as the starting filed is not as big.

NEW: „E-Bike Trophy“

In 2016, as part of the Salzkammergut Trophy, there will be for the first time a contest for pedelecs. The 36 km long course has about 1.200 meter altitude difference. The timing will take place at three course sections only. Two climbs and the last trail before the finish are going to be rated, still the whole distance has be tackled within a certain time limit. Those who want to have a top rating need make sure that they bike most economically between the sections.  

Those who do not have an e-bike yet, have various opportunities to inform themselves at the Bike-Expo during the Trophy weekend. More than 80 exhibitors present the latest products in the bike scene; many stands provide also test bikes by renowned producers. There are also going to be guided e-bike test tours along the mountains of Bad Goisern.
