>>>Green Mountain Bike World Cup Schladming Planai

Sporting events have become an important commercial factor for the district of Liezen. They help to insure that the local community are identified along with the event and the athletes. Again and again with great pride, the city of Schladming is noted as a City of World Championship events. At the same time large scale events can have a big effect on the environment and therefor many ecological and social issues may arise.

The following measures have been taken into consideration during the planning and implementation of the Mountain Bike World Cup.
