The first half of the extreme distance stays as it was. Instead of doing the first loop twice, the second loop leads over Obertraun, Hallstatt and Gosau, just as it did in the years 1998 - 2003, with hardly any changes. There are some new tracks like the new bike trail on the eastern shore of lake Hallstättersee for instance. There will also be a new trail between Gosau and Hallstatt, so that bikers don't have to carry their bikes. The Trophy B-distance will completely follow the second loop of the 220km trail. The trails of the 27 km and 53km tracks will stay completely as they were. You will already find a plan of the new trails on the trophy website.
Registration for the 19th Salzkammergut Mountainbike Trophy is possible as of now! For the toughest among all Trophy participants the 9^th of July starts again at 05:00 am – the start of the extreme distance on the Market Square of Bad Goisern. Incredible 211 km and 7.119 meters altitude difference is waiting for the participants of one of hardest mountain bike marathons in the World. Besides the extreme distance, the Trophy offers courses with 22, 37, 53, 76 and 119 km suitable for all performance levels, as well as a technically challenging 60 km All-Mountain“-Marathon.
Registration for Unicycle-Downhill, Unicycle-Marathon and for the new E-Bike-competition is also possible as of now. We are planning some changes regarding the SCOTT Junior Trophy, more details beginning of December.
In 2016, as part of the Salzkammergut Trophy, there will be for the first time a contest for pedelecs. The 36 km long course has about 1.200 meter altitude difference. The timing will take place at three course sections only. Two climbs and the last trail before the finish are going to be rated, still the whole distance has be tackled within a certain time limit. Those who want to have a top rating need make sure that they bike most economically between the sections.
Those who do not have an e-bike yet, have various opportunities to inform themselves at the Bike-Expo during the Trophy weekend. More than 80 exhibitors present the latest products in the bike scene; many stands provide also test bikes by renowned producers. There are also going to be guided e-bike test tours along the mountains of Bad Goisern on Lake Hallstatt
