Everything you need to know about the UCI Mountain Bike World Series 2023

From the 15th to 18th June, it's that time again. Saalfelden Leogang is part of the World Cup calendar of the International Cycling Union with some novelties in the store. All important information about the spectacular event can be found here!

The Way to Leogang

By public transport to the Mountain Bike World Cup: entrance ticket = journey ticket

For an easy arrival we recommend the public transport, because from Friday, 16th to Sunday, 18th June, the entrance ticket is automatically valid as a ticket for all public transport in the province of Salzburg (except trolleybus lines & bus lines in the city of Salzburg). We make the use of public transport simple and cheap again this year.
