The return of “Il Castello”
France’s daredevil Antoine Bizet will return to the event having bagged one of the events most memorable moments with his double backflip on a big bike in 2013, along with “2014 ruler of the week” Geoff Gulevich (CAN), Peter Henke (GER), Sam Reynolds (GBR) and Tobi Wrobel (GER).

The life size wooden “Il Castello” castle, will once more become the hub of action, where the riders let loose, whilst working together with the four invited photographers to make the most of the setup during the various sessions, including heli, sunrise and sunset shoots. German trail mastermind Andi Wittmann will again host the event, “We are always trying to build as creatively as possible and to improve the course each year. This time one of our goals has been to create more air time”.
