The Salzkammergut dedicates the extreme course to all "Adrenalin Junkies"! 211,3 kilometres and an incredible 7,119 meters altitude difference – welcome to the Salzkammergut extreme challenge and Europe's toughest Mountain Bike Marathon! With a drop-out rate up to 50 %, this course is even daunting for die-hards like Roberto Heras, Wolfgang Fasching, Stefan Danowski, Ondrej Fojtik or Tinker Juarez. Besides an immense physical condition, it also demands great technical skills and mental strength.

This is an advantage to those teams who have lots of participants in the race, who ride the longest courses and reach the finishing line just before the time limit is in effect.

The particular concern of the organizers is to encourage rookies for mountain biking. There are various course lengths suitable for any ability. The time limits are set in such a way that no one has to quit the race, even when going less than 10 km per hour. Numerous refreshment stops along the course will recharge your battery and at the finishing line a quick recuperation is guaranteed by a team of masseurs.

No matter if you tackle the 22.1 km Rookie’s marathon (688 m altitude difference), 37.9 km (1,114 m altitude difference), 53.5 km (1,543 m altitude difference), 61.0 km (2,074 m altitude difference), 73.6 km (2,446 m altitude difference) or the 119.5 km distance (3,848 m altitude difference) – every finisher will be cheered like a winner at the finishing line and all bikers have the same chance of winning first prize! After the winners' ceremony, all present bikers take part in a raffle with prizes worth more than € 6500,-!
