WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series in Saalfelden Leogang 2024 with UCI Downhill & Enduro World Cups

The WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series 2024 will return to Saalfelden Leogang in 2024.

rom 7 to 9 June, the  UCI  Enduro (EDR & E-EDR) and Downhill (DHI) World Cup will stop by the Epic Bikepark Leogang and Austria's largest bike-region Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn. Of course, last year's champions – local heroes Vali Höll and Andi Kolb – will be there, determined to defend their respective wins.

The WHOOP UCI Mountain Bike World Series got the 2024 season off to a successful start last weekend in Mairiporã, Brazil, with the UCI Cross-country World Cups. The first UCI Downhill World Cup event in Fort William is also a mere 16 days away. Time to already take a first look at the Epic Bikepark Leogang, too, where the best of the best downhill and enduro riders will compete for valuable World Cup points about one month later. As usual, all eyes will be on the "Speedster"  downhill course, whose finish area at the Asitzbahn cable car station will be the center of the action – just like last year: Vali Höll and Andi Kolb made history here in June 2023 with the first joint Austrian victory in the elite women's and men's races - on home soil to boot. At the same time, the organizers are also looking forward to welcoming the enduro athletes back to Saalfelden Leogang for their second UCI World Cup season. 


“After what happened last year, my anticipation is of course huge. The home UCI World Cup event in Leogang is a highlight for me every year anyway. The best thing is racing in front of a home crowd and feeling that extra kick that you only get at home. Overall, I'm really looking forward to the season. I want to be more consistent than last season and also fight for the Overall UCI World Cup title." – Andi Kolb, Leogang winner 2023 and runner-up 2023 UCI World Champion   

"The home UCI World Cup in Leogang has always been something special for me. My family and friends are there and the home crowd always has my back. That means great anticipation, but also a lot of pressure at times. The first two times in particular, it was like being under a spell. Fortunately, last year it finally all just clicked. The fact that Andi also won the men's race made the whole thing even better. As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn’t mind to just have it like that again this year. I am really looking forward to it." - Vali Höll, Leogang winner 2023, UCI 2022 & 2023 World Champion and Overall UCI Downhill World Cup winner in 2021 & 2023.
