Show and prove that you excel in all elements of riding – going uphill and downhill. Bike Park Ljubljana will be the right terrain to show how good you are, but there’s a catch – you will have to ride all five challenges with the same bicycle. Which means that on this day everybody can finish on top as each of us is better at one thing and worse at other. You will choose when (inside the set time frame) you will ride certain discipline and how many tries will you do. You can go once, twice… ten times if you want. 

If you’re really good on your bike, then this is your chance to shine and get crowned as KING or QUEEN OF BIKE PARK LJUBLJANA.

With quick registration you’ve nothing to worry about and you will get a number plate for your bike.

Bike & Gear

– Use of the bicycle helmet is mandatory. Organizer strongly suggest the use of the full-face helmet, legs/knees & arm protection and body protection.

– Every competitor has to race all disciplines with the same bike, it’s not allowed to change bikes during the day. Every bicycle will get a tag at the time of registration.

– It’s allowed to use dropper seat posts.

– Competitors in the e-bike category have to use stock certified e-bicycle. We don’t have the technological option to check your software, so we expect a fair-play competition from all of you. We reserve the right for disqualification of the rider if we have justified suspicion that the power output has been increased or that bicycle was modified in any other way.

Timekeeping

Time will be measured with the help of wireless transponders. Rider will get it at the time of registration, the transponder will have to be on the bike throughout the competition. Transponders will be collected after the last challenge of the day.
