Big Five Bike Challenge
Put yourself to the test with this challenging adventure!
The “challengers” have 5 cable cars available for them to use on this XXL freeride tour on 5 different mountains, guaranteeing the absolute maximum freeride pleasure on one day.
One complete circuit covers ca. 5,000 vertical metres; you only have to ride up 500 m of them under your own steam, the cable cars take care of the rest. You can actually take a virtual ride along the tour form the comfort of your own home, perhaps taking your immortal place in the challengers “Hall of Fame.”
