For the fifth year in a row from September 12th – 14th, 2008, the world’s best mountain bikers will perform a Mega show on the world famous Planai ski slope in Schladming (Styria), Austria, the same slope where during the winter the stars of the alpine ski circuit race into the valley at ridiculous speeds. For the spectators it will be an unforgettable event with sport and party.
All the biggest names of the Downhill and Four-Cross biking scene will be there, including Cedric Gracia (FRA) and co. Thrillseekers can watch the action unfold under the floodlights during the dramatic Four Cross Nightrace.
The female participants will not give way to their male colleagues and will also descend Planai at breakneck speeds into the valley. In 2006 Sabina Jonnier (FRA) was the winner in Downhill and Fionn Friffiths dominated in Four-Cross.
As in the last years, the World’s top mountain bikers will once again change the 5,000 square metre Expo-area in and around the Planai Station into a Mountain Bike heaven creating and exciting atmosphere in the village of Schladming.
The international Superstars declared the 2006 Downhill and Four-Cross in Schladming the second best World Cup event in 2006. It was an honour to be recognized in this way after the many months of preparation that went into the event.
