Not long, or more precisely only 3 weeks until riders can roll on to the tracks at Bikepark Leogang. From May 15th mountain bikers can once again start ripping up the trails. To give you a sweet taste of the action waiting for you in Saalfelden Leogang, check out the final episode of the Lahnvalley Crew’s “Moments of Contrast”.

Bikepark Leogang is the home of nail biting downhill action – like the final battle between Gee Atherton and Steve Smith last year during the UCI Mountain Bike Downhill World Cup. The dirt jump contest 26TRIX is also a permanent fixture on the FMB World Tour calendar. Over the years, many titles have been won and lost in this quaint, yet lively Austrian village. These moments have established the Saalfelden Leogang region as Austria’s mountain biking mecca – but its reputation is built on far more than professional races and events. Bikepark Leogang is the ideal location for recreational riders. No matter how experienced, every year avid fans flock to Saalfelden Leogang to rip up the well groomed tracks in the bike park and surrounding areas.

The third and final part of the clip series “Moments of Contrast” illustrates the separation as well as unity of these two worlds. For the professionals, Bikepark Leogang is a battleground, while for the everyday rider it is a chance to step back from reality and feel a unique adrenaline buzz. What makes Saalfelden Leogang different from other resorts is that whether from the sidelines or from behind the bars of your bike, all of this action is easily accessible to everyone. “Moments of Contrast” depicts exactly that!
