Review 18. Salzkammergut Trophy

Participant’s record and track record! With 4.484 bikers at the marathon, 449 at the SCOTT Junior Trophy and 106 at the unicycle-Downhill  5.000er barrier has been broken for the first time. More than 700 bikers were registered just for the extreme distance.

The 24 year old German Andreas Seewald from the Centurion Vaude Team set the records from the very beginning! Sometimes he was even 30 minutes ahead of the passing times scheduled by his own coaches. The timing stopped at 09:50:47, almost 3 minutes less than the last course record by Luis Leao Pinto (POR) in 2013.
Ondřej Fojtík (CZE), winner in 2012, was runner up with a time of 10:12:12. The Tyrolean Martin Ludwiczek came in third 27 minutes later.

Only four out of 14 women were able to finish the extreme distance! And the winner is – just as in 2014 – Milena Cesnaková (Superior MTB-Team) from the Czech Republic. She was able to undercut the late track record by Andrea Huser (SUI) in 2006 with almost 7 minutes and outclassed her compatriot Jana Skrbková (Eleven Team) by more than 19 minutes. Lucie Vlášková came in third with a time of 13:42:40, also below the magical 14 hour limit ensuring a Czech triple victory!

Jason, tell us about your experiences with the Salzkammergut Trophy!

Jason: I knew the ride was going to be tough, but wow! It was tougher than I was expecting. There aren't any 1000 metre climbs or days when the heat reaches 30 degrees in the UK so it came as a bit of a shock. The brilliant organisation and feedstations made the whole experience a good one though. Everyone taking part was super-friendly too, in spite of the various language barriers.

Did you join in the Trophy for the first time?

Jason: Yes, I took part for the first time, but not the last! I'll be back next year.

How long did it take you?

Jason: 14 hours. I can't quite comprehend the winner's time...!

Are you happy with your ride?

Jason: I think I could ride it faster, but this time I decided to ride with my friends and not go too fast. I had to drive home to the UK straight afterwards! But I´m very happy - a great weekend.

What was your highlight at the Trophy?

Jason: All the way around the route there are cheering crowds and amazing views of forests, gorges and mountains. It's hard to pick out one thing. Perhaps the Austrian sausage at the feed stations. I think I ate a lot of those...

What was your hardest part of the track?

Jason: The climb to Salzberg - I didn't know roads that steep existed! Insane.

How did the Ritchey P650b feel to you?

Jason: I normally ride a carbon hardtail. The steel frame of the Ritchey was nice and forgiving over the bumps, much more than my super-stiff carbon bike. It's probably a little bit heavier than my other bike but I can't say I noticed too much. On the descents, the 650b is so much fun. It's also the coolest-looking bike I've seen for a long time - classic thin tubes and a gorgeous paintjob. Can I keep it? Pleaasssee?

What is you job at Singeltrackworld?

Jason: I've been a contributor to Singletrack Magazine for a while now, but I've not got a job as such there. I love being part of such a well-respected magazine and count myself lucky that I've had opportunities to ride and write about some amazing bikes.

Jason, thanks for the interesting interview!
