Mountain biking parks- Downhill

to all adrenalin junkies

... and all those who prefer to drive the mountains down more than to go up

 

High speed downhill

The object of downhill riding is to travel down a mountain trail on a special downhill bike as fast as possible. Travelling over rough terrain with natural obstacles and speeds of more than 100km/h, the bike must be kept under full control at all times. The difficult part is finding a happy medium between maximum speed and minimum risk of falling. Downhill bikes aren't suitable for going uphill due to their special, robust properties such as heavy weight, low bottom bracket and tail-heavy sitting position, high-volume tyres and maximum of 10 gears. You get up the mountain by cableway, chairlift or shuttle. Protective equipment, such as an integral helmet, upper-body armour, reinforced gloves, wrist guards, elbow pads, kneepads and shin guards, is recommended for downhill biking and is obligatory for racing.

Our tip:
You can borrow protective equipment and bikes from the Tauernhof sportcamp.

Bikepark Wagrain (10 Min. traveling times)

 

A park for every level...

The park offers a complete mixture of trails to satisfy beginner to expert riders alike.

  • "Take it fast or take it slow!": a continuous trail that was "shaped" with an excavator

  • Specially built trail for adrenaline junkies

  • Skill Centre: the ideal place to pick up technical skills or improve on them

  • Slopestale Session Park: play about to reach the next level

The bike park covers 300 vertical meters with a large number of routes for beginners to experts. New or experienced mountain bikers love this addictive mix of gentle, expand, machine-built tracks with massive curves and waves that are found on tracks like "ON AIR". The hard core of the bikers can be found on the cult track "Symphony", filled with massive curves, table tops, step-ups and drops. To round off the day on authentic, Canadian North Shore trails, you will also find old school single tracks like "Memories" with roots and tree trunks. And just like on a normal ski day in Wagrain, the gondola lift "Flying Mozart" awaits you with the bike for more "downhill action" upwards.

 

Skill Center at the Bikepark
At the middle station of the 10-person gondola you will find a complete Skill Center. Here you can learn how to defeat curves, waves, tree trunks and other special features. Experienced bikers can work on their skills at Teeter Tooters, Drops and Discombomulators. www.bikewagrain.com

Bikepark Leogang (60 Min. traveling times)

 

The first and largest bike park in Austria entices with perfectly prepared downhill and freeride trails, a demanding 4-cross with a starting gate and scoreboard clock, a dual course and various kickers. And if that's not enough, you can flit over to the Glemmer valley to the 5,000 m-altitude freeride. The freeride trail at Leogang Bike World is a dirt road with steep turns, camel humps, tables and tunnels. You can by-pass difficult sections on "chicken ways". At the end of the freeride trail, the "biker-cross" promises hot duals and spectacular races over tables, doubles and huge banked turns.

Bikepark Planai / Schladming  (30 Min. traveling times)

 

The Bikepark Planai offers a wide range of possibilities and variations, challenge enough for all bicycle maniacs.

Starting point is right next to the Planai summit station, where you can expect the first brilliant combination of banked turns after the first few metres. At high speed, sometimes on the ski slope, it continues to the precipice near the reservoir, which is technically the most difficult section of the upper part of the trail. Good handling skills are especially important here.
The rest of the trail runs under the Planai cableway and on the margins of the slopes, with a varied course of natural stepped terrain and banks that allow you to show off your moves. Interesting tip for beginners: you can by-pass all of the difficult passages on the alternative routes.

Bikepark Planai

 

After the steep descent at the mid-station where you can really take flight, the trail continues with the typical elements of the Planai downhill course: endless banked turns, mainly at medium speed. Really hard-core guys and gals can add a double dimension by jumping over a stream, but there's also a bridge for mere mortals.
One of the highlights of the trail is final, seemingly endless combination of steep turns directly under the Planai cableway. Then: react at "insane speeds" whilst gravity pulls you down the world-famous Planai final slope.
After 4,500 m of Fun & Action along the path of the cableway, you reach the Planai Olympic stadium.
You might be asking yourself, "what now?"  Yeah, dust yourself off and hop on the next gondola. www.bikeparkplanai.at
