On August 18 and 19, Schladming was focused on biking.
On Saturday the Lifestyle Events -Shot in Thrill and #style4dates took place for the first time in combination. The judges, whether boys or girls, were super hot, the weather was perfect and the Step-Up was freshly shaped.
This year female judges also fought for a date.
At the end of the day, everyone went home with nice prizes and a date.
On Sunday the first GIANT Top 50 followed.
A downhill race on a shortened track. From the 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.
