As the name suggests, the Sölden Bike Republic is a republic, thus it’s only appropriate to have their own National Holiday. The second Bank Holiday comes into effect in September 2019 and is celebrated with the legendary Trail Master Challenge.
All citizens of the Sölden Bike Republic have their own Passport already, now they are invited to join the celebrations on occasion of their second National Holiday: From September 6 to 8, 2019, bike enthusiasts will gather in Ötztal Valley to have fun. There will be a huge kids program to ensure that parents have some time off to ride on their own, heading out on the Enduro Tour or a Sunrise Ride. Highly recommended activities include skills clinics and fun competitions, which will be rounded out by BBQ specialties at the expo area at the base of Gaislachkogel Gondola.
This year’s undiputed highlight will be the return of the popular Trail Master Challenge. Following a six-year break, the legendary event will be hosted by the Bike Republic. There will also be a Trail Master Kids Race for upcoming talents. The first downhill sprint will be held Friday evening at dusk; the finals will take place on Sunday.
