24H-Downhill-MTB Worldrecord 2019

We did a massive project in fall 2018 with Mercedes Benz. You can see the outcome in the video bellow:

Bikepark closed in 2019

In 2019 the gates of Bikepark Schladming will be closed.
The reason for this is the reconstruction of the gondola as well as the renewal and extension of the tracks on the Planai.
But as a consolation we have a treat for you: because the Reiteralm Trails will be open for you in June 2019.
A flowy singletrack as well as the junior trails for the little ones – family fun for all! So the offer Schladming-Dachtstein BIKE is completed at Reopening 2020 and you can not only experience shredding fun at the Planai!

We are looking forward to the season 2020 #biggerandbetter

Season Closing 2018

THANKS FOR THIS GREAT SEASON!

On the 13th of October the legendary Season Closing including the Shaper Games took place in Bikepark Schladming.
A worthy season ending including mega fun and nice action as well as an aftershow party at Marias Mexican!

Thanks to all sponsors, employees, friends, helpers, relatives and acquaintances for the support - BUT the biggest thank you goes to all our riders out there, because YOU make every season unique - just like this one!

Over and out!

ATTENTION!

The Bikepark today, is closed from 3pm because of transport flights.

ATTENTION – important Information!

Tomorrow all day the lower part of the bike park (from the middle station) is closed because of material transport regarding the floodlights!

We apologize for any inconvenience!

Another Event Weekend is in the books!

What a weekend!

On Saturday the Shot in Thrill & #style4date took place for the first time in combination.

In the morning the LINES photographer hid at 3 different spots on the downhill track and took some really nice shots of the riders.

Afterward, we continued with #style4dates at the last photo spot – the step-up.

The number of participants has tripled since last year. This time the girls could fight for a date, too. Paula Zibasa and Manuela Walder proved not only through style but also through courage how much they deserve their dates.
On Sunday followed the first GIANT Top 50 downhill race.
It was to be a race of a different kind – on a shortened track, from step-up on the finish line at the former Dirtpark. The riders could ride as many laps as they wanted to qualify. This racing mode was very popular with the participants, because who doesn’t like shredding countless runs and can win money at the same time?

But in the end, there was only one winner – Local Hero Andreas Kolb! Followed by Patrick Butler in second place and Bikepark Schladming rider Erich Wieland in third place, the fastest Women Paula Zibasa also won € 150,- in prize money and cool prizes. But also a fastest Young Gun was awarded – none other than Nico Ofner.

From July 11th – 13th the Race & Style Camp with Pro Rider Andreas Viehböck took place in the Bikepark Schladming.

The first day was a bit rainy, so the course started with theory. In addition, the braking techniques were improved and the boys learned how to screw on their bikes independently. On day 2 they went on the track, practicing curve-, jumping- and line techniques. In the evening there was a chilled barbecue at the pump track together with the parents to tell about what they had learned.

The third day started with sector training and ended with a small race

Many thanks to Andreas Viehböck and Traunsee Flow as well to all participants.

Opening Weekend 2018 – Review

After the winter break the bikepark opened his trails again on the 19th of June.

Right on the opening day, there had been two awesome events.

On the one hand there was the Austrian Pumptrak Series with “Pump the Mountain”. Where 68 riders showed what the can on the local Pumptrack.

On the other hand we had the legendary Austrian Whip Offs presented by Bell Bike Helmets, next door on the Dirtpark.
Three selected judges, Christoph Berger-Schauer (LINES Magazin), Elke Rabeder & our Bikepark Planai rider Erich Wieland, chose the three most stylish whips.

The first price was a super nice full-face helmet from Bell Bike Helemets, beside that one of the rider also won a Wildcard for Crankworx Innsbruck.

It was a pleasure – thanks for riding with us!

Gravity Games 2016 – Recap

Sun, rain and champagne showers – the Gravity Games 2016 in rewind

The third edition of the iXS European Downhill Cup at Schladming provided all riders and the audience with 3 days of pure downhill action. More than 400 riders from 27 countries joined the Gravity Games from June 17-19, 2016, and took up the challenges that the legendary track and the inconsistent weather conditions had to offer. After 3 days of racing action, Slawomir Lukasik (POL) conquered the top of the podium – after his two second places in the previous races of the EDC, his victory was well deserved. Thanks to Petra Bernhard, the crowd at Schladming was able to celebrate an Austrian victory in the category Elite Women.

As probably fastest track in Europe, Schladming is attracting lots of international participants, year after year. Last weekend, the track on the Planai was again in perfect shape and challenged the downhill elite. During the runs, the excitement even rose with the weather changing. Already on Saturday, the riders got caught by the rain in the qualification. Thus, it got quite turbulent on the final grass passage. One rider who caused loud shouts and cheers in the crowd was the serial winner of the previous EDC races Johannes Fischbach. Despite his bail at the last turn, the German came in second in the seeding runs. Only beaten by David Trummer (AUT).

On the final day, the sun welcomed all riders – a condition which abruptly changed in the afternoon. Whereas the riders of the Elite Men in the Small Final still had some dry runs, the Superfinals evolved into a mud challenge with thrilling action. For a rather long time, the South African Stefan Garlicki took over the hot seat on which traditionally the current rider sits down.  Then Laurie Greenland entered the race. Shortly before arriving in Schladming the favored Brit made his first top ten world cup result and took the full risk on the track: He barely made the last jump before crossing the finish line with a new best time and then crashing in the finishing area. His time was only beaten by an outstanding performance of Slawomir Lukasik. Already at the first intermediate he took the lead and subsequently came in first with a time of 4:17.135 and a 3.584 second lead.  Well-deserved after his last two second places at the previous races.

It almost seemed like Petra Bernhard was competing in a league of her own.  Even though the Styrian female rider had already resigned from her active racing career, she couldn’t say no to this legendary race in Schladming. She sent her run in a time of 5:12.733 and outpaced her competitors in the category Elite Women with a commanding lead of 12.622 seconds.

On all three days of the race, the spectators could enjoy an action-packed program – alongside with the iXS European Cup runs, two more thrilling side events took place: the Planai Pump Masters supported by Spark 7 and the Austrian Whip Offs presented by Bell – both of which were won by local riders: On Friday, Michael Amon won the title at the Planai Pump Masters and on Saturday, Manuel Schretter showed off the most stylish whip in front of the cheering crowd.

IXS European Downhill Cup 2015 Schladming – Recap

GravityGames__21-06-2015__by Roland Haschka__017

Highlight of the Gravity Games 2015 in the Bikepark Plani, was the iXS Europeam Downhill Cup on Sunday. The weather was again a mixture of rain, clouds and sunshine – hence no easy job for the riders, to get the best out of the challenging downhill track on Planai.

Let’s have a look who was the best today in each of the competing categories:

The „PRO MASTERS“
As usually the “Seniors” started the finals of the iXS Downhill Cup in Schladming. With no fear, the guys wrecked their bikes down the 2.5km long downhill track and fought hard until the very end. Eventually it was Michal Sliwa from Poland who took the lead with a time of 04:25.557, in front of the Dane Mads Weidemann and the German Benjamin Herold.
The „ROOKIES U17“
Next up were the younguns in the category Pro Youth U17. Here it was the young Brit Joe Parfitt who performed better than all other riders, winning with a time of 04:26.799. Behind him: Andrea Bianciotto from Italy and Moritz Ribarich from Austria.
The „ROOKIES U19“
The second category among the rookies were the “Pro Juniors U19”. Here we had a very tight race between the first two ridres. In the end however it was Laurie Greenland from Great Britain taking the lead with a time of 04:14.206 – beating the young Australian Max Warshawksy and the Canadian Henry Fitzgerald.
The „LADIES“
And then it got really exciting, as it was time for the ladies, competing in the category “Elite Women”. Last year’s winner Emmeline Ragot from France was already in the Seeding Runs on Saturday faster than all the other girls, and also in the big finals, nobody was able to beat her. The rider from the Team MS Mondraker hence wins for the second time in a row the iXS Downhill Cup in Schladming, this year with a time of 04:37.755. Coming in second, there was Tahnée Seagrave from Great Britain, just before Tracey Hannah from Australia.
Best Austrian girl was local Petra Bernhard, who was able to score the fifth place with a solid run (5:04.172).

GravityGames__21-06-2015__by Roland Haschka__004

The „ELITE Man“
Shortly after 3pm, it was time for the ultimate showdown of the Gravity Games 2015 – the Superfinals of the iXS Downhill Cup in the category Elite Men. The finishing area of the Planai was raising the roof, when the top 30 riders came down the steep hill, battling for the best time. After the results from the Seeding Runs, it was clear that among those riders, everyone is able to come in first. And in the end it was a true dramatic finish. For a long time it looked like the young Kiwi George Brannigan was unable to beaten today, with his fantastic time of 04:03.931. However than as last rider, the Danny Hart show started. Danny fought until the very last meter of the track and eventually was able to beat Brannigan with a time of 04:03.573 – not even half a second faster than George. Right after the race, Danny couldn’t hold back his feelings: “Wow, what a feeling! Today everybody was going so super fast! What an amazing track! Thank you Schladming for having me, it’s been a pleasure!”
Behind Brannigan on place 3 there was last year’s winner Loic Bruni from the Lapierre Gravity Team, in front of Ruaridh Cunningham on place 4. The fifth place was another surprise: Austrian and Schladming local Markus Pekoll demonstrated impressively that he is back, after his heavy injury a few months ago. Accordingly he was also super happy after the race: “Trust me, this fifth place today feels like an absolute victory to me – what a great feeling!”
